Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Everything a parent needs to know about caring for a baby.

The Baby Care Book is a clear, thoughtful and objective guide that helps parents raise a newborn. The subject of parenting is often confusing. The great value of this book is that it empowers parents with knowledge and allows them to make personal choices for each circumstance and situation.

Both authors are leading experts from the world-renowned Hospital for Sick Children. The Baby Care Book covers an extensive range of topics in clear, easy-to-understand language. Specially commissioned real life photographs throughout complement the text, providing additional instructions and information.

The chapters include:

  • Getting Ready to Have Your Baby
  • Your Baby's First Few Days
  • Feeding Your Baby
  • Your Baby's First Month
  • Helping Your Baby to Sleep
  • Your Baby's Months 2 and 3
  • Playing with Your Baby
  • Your Baby's Months 4 to 6
  • Safety and Childproofing
  • Your Baby's Months 7 to 12.

Both parent and newborn will benefit from the expert guidance that The Baby Care Book provides.

Review:

"Two leading pediatricians at Toronto's internationally esteemed Hospital for Sick Children (aka 'Sick Kids') combine their expertise with that of five other pediatricians and a nurse practitioner in this comprehensive guide to the first 12 months of life. The book opens with a useful section on concepts and decisions that should be addressed before the baby is born, such as choosing a doctor, preparing siblings and purchasing equipment. The authors also discuss a variety of family situations, including single, same sex and adoptive parents. Following sections cover development and medical concerns in the first days, weeks and months, giving special attention to feeding, sleep issues, play, safety and how to care for a sick baby. 'Frequently Asked Questions' sections will be particularly useful to first-time parents. Much like a good pediatrician, the text is straightforward and personable, and more than 200 color photos of parents and children provide an intimate, playful touch. The authors successfully create 'a clear, objective, and, above all, practical guide' in this instructive and visually lively resource. (Sept.)"
