Caring for Kids
The Complete Canadian Guide to Children's HealthBook - 2006
Caring for Kids: The Complete Canadian Guide to Children's Health is a comprehensive contemporary guide to health and wellness in children (ages 0-10), combining medically sound care with cutting edge research. With information culled from the best scientific evidence available, the authors provide a thoughtful, compassionate and informed approach to an extensive array of childhood conditions and illnesses. The book is divided into three main sections. The first part deals with some of the more important symptoms that parents must identify and manage from fever and colic to teething and headaches. In the second part, parents will find information on the nature of many specific conditions that affect children (nursing concerns in newborns, shingles, sleep problems, heart murmurs and more). This section seeks to answer three key questions: What is the condition? What can parents expect to happen? How should the problem be treated? The third major section of this guide provides a reference to help manage some of the common accidents and emergencies that occur in childhood. An indispensable reference guide for parents of young children.
