THE CLASSIC THAT CONTINUES TO GROW WITH THE TIMES! For sixty-five years, parents have relied on the expert advice of renowned pediatrician Dr. Benjamin Spock. But while children never change, issues and concerns do. Dr. Robert Needlman, himself a top-notch pediatrician, has newly updated and expanded this timeless classic to speak to any parent who is raising children in our rapidly changing world. While still providing reassuring advice on age-old topics such as caring for a new baby, as well as accidents, illness, and injuries, this book also contains expanded information in many new areas, including:

• Cutting-edge medical opinion on immunizations

• Obesity and nutrition

• Cultural diversity and nontraditional family structures

• Childrens learning and brain development

• The newest thinking on children with special needs

• Environmental health

• Increasingly common disorders such as ADHD, depression, and autism— including medications and behavioral interventions

• Children and the media, including electronic games

• Coping with family stress

• And much, much more

With an updated glossary of common medications and an authoritative list of the most reliable online resources, this invaluable guide is still the next best thing to Dr. Spocks #1 rule of parenting: “Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”

About the Author

Benjamin Spock, M.D., practiced pediatrics in New York City from 1933 to 1947. He then became a medical teacher and researcher at the Mayo Clinic, the University of Pittsburgh, and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The author of eleven books, he was a political activist for causes that vitally affect children: disarmament, day care, schooling, housing, and medical care for all. He had two sons, a stepdaughter, and four grandchildren. Dr. Spock, who died March 15, 1998, at age ninety-four, was married to Mary Morgan. Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care has been translated into thirty-nine languages and has sold fifty million copies worldwide since its first publication in 1946.

First exposure to Baby and Child Care, for me, was in 1976 when my first child was born. 4 children I have and 4 grand-children also.
I kept Dr. Spock's book on hand and proudly will say it is the only book - other than the Bible - that I have gone back to time and time again. From the copy I saw in print with it's burgundy hard-back cover to this latest edition, which I purchased a copy of for my oldest daughter - now 29; it is still the ultimate child care reference.
2 sons, oldest, 1 daughter all from 1st marriage and 1 daughter from 2nd and she blessed the world with my grand-daughter on March 24, 2007.
She swears by the internet advice and sites. I have to get her a copy of this book and let her blend what every mom knows intrinsically with her "beloved" (though over-rated) internet sites with the advice and counsel of what I view as one of the few authoritative sources on child care.
Also Dr. Spock's book is the only one that is specific and in-depth compared to other, although prominent, publications which outline.
How strongly do I feel about this? I believe the "No Child Left Behind" legislation should have granted every parent a free copy of Baby and Child Care.
