Description

For over 45 years Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care has been the bible for new parents--the one book you can use in the middle of the night to decide whether or not to call your doctor. All the most common childhood illnesses and symptoms are described and the best treatment advised, as well as what to do in an emergency. In clear, sensible language, it tells you how to care for a newborn infant, how to guide your toddler or adolescent through the difficult stages, and what to do about school problems. Virtually every aspect of the care of infants, children, and teenagers is covered, from sleep problems to discipline to sex and drugs--all the basic information that has made Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care the most authoritative and complete parenting guide ever written.In this new edition, Drs. Spock and Rothenberg also address the special needs of today's parents: there are sections on divorce, single-parent and "blended" families, and the changing roles of women and men at home and at work. New and expanded topics include working parents, day care, injury prevention, AIDS, homosexuality, and the latest techniques for successful breast-feeding for working mothers.Informative, easy to use, responding to the changes in our society, this newly revised and updated sixth edition of Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care makes a classic work more essential than ever.show more
