MRS. BUSH: Well, this is great. This is very, very interesting. And you're right, it's so important for mothers and fathers to have the kind of support you can get from a well-baby clinic -- support in breast-feeding, which is so important, and then just knowing these basic CPR moves. All of the things in the book about using a car seat, talking about heights, all of those are very important to make sure children aren't injured and don't suffer injuries, head injuries, for instance, that can be permanent.
