9781439189283: Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care: 9th Edition

Dr. Benjamin Spock is America’s most trusted name in child care and parenting, and his essential guidebook has topped bestseller lists for over sixty-five years. This fully revised and updated edition of the classic manual provides first time and experienced parents the best information about caring for new babies, toddlers, and adolescents in the twenty-first century.

All of Dr. Spock’s invaluable, time-tested advice is here, along with the most current medical practices and advances in health care. While still covering key parenting issues like accidents, illnesses and injuries, this edition of the classic also contains the latest on:

* Immunizations
* Nutrition and childhood obesity
* Cultural diversity
* Alternative and non-traditional family structures
* Children’s learning and brain development
* Raising children with special needs
* Environmental health
* Increasingly common disorders such as ADHD, childhood depression, and autism—including medications and behavioral interventions
* Children and the media, including screen time, video games, and the internet

Updated by leading pediatrician Robert Needlman, the book includes a revised glossary of common medications and a resource guide that compiles the most reliable online resources. This indispensable guide is still the next best thing to Dr. Spock’s #1 rule of parenting: “Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.”

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.

From the Publisher:

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 about sex, contraception, homosexuality, alcohol and drug, 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 recommendations. 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.
