Generations of parents have relied on Dr. Spock's classic bestseller Baby and Child Care. It is still the source book, the most authoritative and reliable guide for parents. Collaborating with pediatrician and child psychiatrist Dr. Michael B. Rothenberg, Dr. Spock has updated his work to meet the changes and challenges of the 1990s. Reorganized for faster and easier reference, with many new and expanded sections, the book includes the latest advice and information on such topics as:

  • breast-feeding: the newest approaches, with proven techniques for working mothers
  • Cesarean section
  • single parenting, remarriage and "blended" families
  • talking to your child about sex, contraception, homosexuality, alcohol and drug abuse, AIDS
  • working and parenting
  • common medical questions and answers about whooping cough vaccine, diaper rash, infant diarrhea, scoliosis, and acne
  • traveling with children
  • immunization schedules, vitamins and dietary reccomendations

    All Dr. Spock's invaluable, time-tested advice is here, including the most current medical practices and advances in child care. Written for parents of the '90s, this essential and classic work will help them face their many challenges and responsibilities with new confidence and joy.

    Review:

    No parenting library is complete without this childcare classic. Recently revised, the sixth edition still provides the sensible, compassionate advice and hard-core how-to-do-it tips that Dr. Spock has always been famous for. Whether it's mixing formula, treating chicken pox, or dealing with divorce or a child's homosexuality, Dr. Spock is the man.
