In this book Loraine Stern provides the voice of reason and assurance that every parent seeks in moments of distress and uncertainty. This easy-to-use guide to more than 200 problems that parents face with their children (from rashes and high temperatures to nightmares, thumb-sucking, colic and pigeon toes), should be of interest to every parent who has ever asked "Is this normal ...or is my child really ill?", the right advice on what is wrong with an ailing child. Each entry includes a list of principal symptoms, advice on what is normal and what is not, common remedies and guidelines on what action should be taken - should you call the doctor, call an ambulance, or simply be patient? Being a parent, and especially a first time parent, is never easy. This book dispels some of the anxiety and uncertainty that accompanies a sick infant, promoting the well-being of the child and maintaining the sanity of the harried parents. Dr Loraine M Stern is a practising paediatrician and regular baby-care columnist.
