Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In an emergency involving an infant or young child, the decisions you make may lead to either an amusing story to tell in twenty years or unspeakable tragedy. The difference between the two is often determined by whether you are well-informed and prepared to act decisively and calmly to ensure the safety of the youngster. From noted child psychologist Lawrence Shapiro, The Baby Emergency Handbook offers parents and caregivers lifesaving advice for dealing with some thirty-five common emergencies. Organized in alphabetical order, each of the entries begins with a section on prevention. This is followed by a step-by-step action plan for dealing with the emergency as it happens. At the end of the entry, readers will find a section explaining any follow-up that may be necessary. The entries take special care to point out those situations in which the intuitive response to a crisis is not the best one. The book also includes a pull-out infant/toddler CPR guide and a special section entitled Secrets of Getting Fast Help in a Hospital Emergency Room.
