I almost bought the What to Expect, but then I found this and I can trust it so much more because it's written and edited by real pediatricians. This is a thick book but you have to remember it covers 6 years of the child's life. It is well organized and easy to navigate, with a great table of contents and index. It is sectioned off into age groups so every couple of months I pull it out and read up on the next phase. It is outdated in some areas like the car seat section, but not enough for me to deduct a star. I used this book almost daily in the first 3-4 months of my daughter's life. This would be a great gift or registry item for all moms and dads!

the perfect baby shower gift: i am a pediatrician and think the topics are well presented and good for parents to find expected to the unexpected and helps triage urgency of the "abnormal". updated by the AAP and supported by pediatric programs nationwide. and peace of mind for a print is essential: this book is worth all the hours you can spend googling your worry about your kid, and you know that the book provides correct evidence based science, so no guessing what website to believe. get the book, give the book, use the book!

I purchased right before my daughter was born and do not have any regrets! The tone is neutral and supportive, just like you want your pediatrician to be. I bought this because I do not love researching on the Internet (TMI --> anxious mom) and knew this would be in line with the advice of most pediatricians. I like that it outlines when things are truly an issue and need to be evaluated by a dr and when I can calm down.

Details -

- I like the information on nursing and the newborns chapter is truly a life-saver.

- excerpts for dads & grandparents are nice

- The sleep appendix was very helpful as we faced our biggest challenge yet, sleep training our 5 month old. I am sure I will find it useful again during her next sleep phase.

- each time period/chapter ends with a "safety check," which is a nice reminder of the new safety issues we will face as parents

Caring for Your Baby and Young Child: Birth to Age 5, is a basic source on health and wellness for young children. It is systematically written, but is not completely unfeeling to the everyday challenges faced by parents. Important child-rearing issues such as disciplining, and social and behavioral problems are mentioned only briefly, and the ever-popular debate over attachment parenting is disregarded altogether.
Part I is not a "month-by-month guide to the first year" as suggested in the editorial. It is categorized as follows: 1st month, 1st month through the 3rd, 4th month through the 7th, 8th month through the 12th, 2nd year, 2nd year through the 3rd, and 3rd year through the 5th. I did not find this arrangement to be as helpful as the month-by-month grouping of What to Expect the First Year, by Arlene Eisenberg. Nevertheless, the overall advice is beneficial, and it is easy reading. The basic infant care information in the early chapters is worthwhile and the Safety Check sections present invaluable advice.
Part II is a thorough guide to illnesses and disorders. It is arranged alphabetically for quick reference and is comprehensive in content. In my opinion this is the best part of the book and the reason, it should be included in every parent's library.

This book is very helpful, I am not a reader and this book is user friendly as well. You can just hold onto this book and use as a reference when you or your baby need something. It is very accurate by age for the baby, covering milestones etc. I had this book when my baby was born and it helped keep me sane and not call the doctor every 5 minutes. I also continue year after year to give the book as gifts for new moms.

We have 2 kids 5 years apart and this book has been a life-saver (not literally for us but for you, who knows). This book relieves any stress related to illness you may have about your child. It has CPR instructions. It is incredibly useful. Anytime our children have issues, we refer to this book first before calling the doctor. Of course, if an emergency room is required = GO! But if you continually call your doctor at strange hours and you end up going to pay for and feel like you wasted a visit to the doctor, GET THIS BOOK. I highly recommend it to any parents. I cannot emphasize my recommendation enough!

Just before becoming new parents, my wife and I decided to "read up" on child care and development, and searched for the texts that would have all the answers. Two-and-a-half years into parenting, I think I can report that no such treatise exists. Nonetheless, this book is the best I've seen.
The book is endorsed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, and to me, this makes it a mandatory item in the library of new parents. So many books in this topic are written by individuals whose qualifications are a bit "shakey", but as an attorney I know that such is the by product of the First Amendment and "freedom of the press".
I've found the information contained in this book to be informative, helpful, and easy to understand. The introductory chapters deal with birth and preparation for the arrival of a new baby, and so it would be appropriate to purchase or receive before the child actually "gets here". Other reviewers have indicated that they have given the book as a gift at showers, and we have since adopted this practice.
The content follows development (i.e., first months, later years, etc.) and tells you what to look for in each stage, whether emotionally, psychologically, or physically, and notes various milestones. Tips and advice are also included, such as recommendations about strollers, beds, age-apropriate toys, baby's interaction with other children, car seats, treatment of illness, when to contact physician, sleeping and feeding tips, etc. There is also an appendix of illness and conditions, which is very usefull. This is usually the first place we look when needing an answer or when a problem arises.
This is a handy reference, and I strongly recommend for at least first-time parents.
