"For over 45 Years,Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care has been the bible for new parents -- the one book you can use in the middle of the night to decide whether or not to call your doctor. All of the most common childhood illnesses and their symptoms are described, and the best treatment of them advised, as well as what you should do in case of an emergency. Virtually every aspect of the care of infants, children, and teenagers is covered, from sleep problems, to discipline, to sex and drugs -- all the basic information that has made this book the most authoritative and complete parenting guide ever written. In this new edition, which contains a wealth of new, revised, and updated material, Drs. Spock and Parker tackle the problems parents face in an increasingly competitive and technological-oriented world." -- Publisher (
