Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The first in a projected trilogy of books that will lead parents from their offspring's babyhood through the teen years, this is a thorough guide to infancy and the first years of a child's life. It's the closest one can get to having a live-in pediatrician. Part One explores the bond between parent and child, then launches into a discussion of pregnancy, delivery and the care of newborn babies. Subsequent chapters cover the first year of life, addressing typical physical and mental developments, how parents can foster independence in children, and common health problems. Major milestones for ages two through five are also explored. Part Two is concerned with child safety, typical child care and how to handle such complex issues as adoption, sibling rivalry and divorce. Individual chapters devoted to eyes, heart, skin and more provide a handy reference tool for spotting potential problems and coping with existing ones. Whether a child is two months or two years old, the up-to-date information offered here will reassure. (Apr.)
Library Journal
Subject to extensive review by Academy members, this handbook on the early years of a child's life is comprehensive, authoritative, and interesting. In section 1, chapters divided according to developmental stages track physical, mental, emotional and verbal growth, basic care, health and safety concerns, and family issues. Section 2 covers child health hazards and treatment. In contrast to the frank, informative, reassuring, but somehow frantic and intimidating personal accounts of parents found in such books as Frances Burck's Babysense: A Practical and Supportive Guide to Baby Care, 2d ed. ( LJ 3/1/91), this survey is cool, confident, and reassuring if somewhat impersonal. An essential addition to consumer health collections.-- Kathryn Hammell Carpenter, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Chicago

Read an Excerpt

Foreword

The American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of 53,000 primary care pediatricians, pediatric medical subspecialists, and pediatric surgical specialists committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental, and social health for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. This book is part of the Academy's ongoing education efforts to provide parents with quality information on a broad spectrum of children's health issues.

What distinguishes this child-care book from the many others in bookstores and on library shelves is that it has been developed and extensively reviewed by members of the American Academy of Pediatrics. A six-member editorial board developed the initial material with the assistance of more than seventy-five contributors and reviewers. The final draft was then reviewed by countless numbers of pediatricians. Because medical information on children's health is constantly changing, every effort has been made to ensure that this book contains the most up-to-date information available.

It is the Academy's hope that this book will become an invaluable resource and reference guide for parents. We believe it is the best source of information on matters of children's health and well-being. We are confident readers will find the book extremely valuable, and we encourage them to use this book in concert with the advice and counsel of their own pediatrician who will provide individual guidance and help on issues related to the health of their children.

First Chapter

Choosing a Pediatrician

Every pediatrician is committed to helping parents raise healthy children with the greatest possible ease, comfort, pleasure, and success. However, different pediatricians have different approaches, so you may want to interview several pediatricians before selecting the one who best suits your family's particular preferences and needs. Conduct these visits before the baby arrives, so the pediatrician you choose can give your newborn her very first exam.

Here are some considerations to help you make your choice:

The Training of Pediatricians

Pediatricians are graduates of four-year medical schools with three additional years of residency training solely in pediatrics. Under supervised conditions, the pediatrician-in-training acquires the knowledge and skills necessary to treat a broad range of conditions, from the mildest childhood illnesses to the most serious diseases.

With the completion of residency training, the pediatrician is eligible to take a written examination given by the American Board of Pediatrics. If he or she passes this examination, a certificate is issued, which you will probably see on the pediatrician's office wall. If you see the initials FAAP after a pediatrician's name, it means he or she is a Fellow (member) of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Only Board-certified pediatricians can become members of this professional organization.

Following their residency, some pediatricians elect an additional one to three years of training in a subspecialty, such as neonatology (the care of sick and premature newborns) or pediatric cardiology (the diagnosis and treatment of heart problems in children). These pediatric subspecialists are generally called upon to consult with general pediatricians when a patient develops uncommon or special problems. If a subspecialist is ever needed to treat your child, your regular pediatrician will help you find the right one for your child's problem.

How to Find a Pediatrician for Your Baby

A good place to start looking for a pediatrician is by asking your obstetrician for referrals. He or she will know local pediatricians who are competent and respected within the medical community. Other parents also can recommend pediatricians who have successfully treated their children.

Once you have the names of several pediatricians you wish to consider, arrange a personal interview with each of them during the final months of your pregnancy. Most pediatricians routinely grant such preliminary interviews. Both parents should attend these meetings if possible, to be sure you both agree with the pediatrician's policies and philosophy about child rearing. Don't be afraid or embarrassed to ask any questions. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • How soon after birth will the pediatrician see your baby?

Most hospitals ask for the name of your pediatrician when you're admitted to deliver your baby. The delivery nurse will then call that pediatrician or his associate on call as soon as your baby is born. If you had any complications during either pregnancy or the delivery, your baby should be examined at birth. Otherwise, the examination can take place anytime during the first twenty-four hours of life. Ask the pediatrician if you can be present during that initial examination. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about your baby and get answers to any questions you may have.

  • When will your baby's next exams take place?

Pediatricians routinely examine newborns and talk with parents before the babies are discharged from the hospital. This lets the doctor identify any problems that may have arisen and also gives you a chance to ask questions that have occurred to you during your hospital stay, before you take the baby home. Your pediatrician will also let you know when to schedule the first office visit for your baby (as early as one day after discharge), and how he or she may be reached if a medical problem develops before then.

  • When is the doctor available by phone?

Many pediatricians have a specific call-in period each day when you can phone with questions. If members of the office staff routinely answer these calls, you should find out what their training is. Also ask your pediatrician for guidelines to help you determine which questions can be resolved with a phone call and which require an office visit.

  • What hospital does the doctor prefer to use?

Ask the pediatrician where to go if your child becomes seriously ill or is injured. If the hospital is a teaching hospital with interns and residents, find out who would actually care for your child if he was admitted.

  • What happens if there is an emergency?

Find out if the pediatrician takes her own emergency calls at night. If not, how are such calls handled? Also, ask if the pediatrician sees patients in the office after regular hours or if you must instead take your child to an emergency room. When possible, it's often easier and more efficient to see the doctor in her office, because hospitals frequently require lengthy paperwork and extended waits before your child receives attention. On the other hand, serious medical problems are usually better handled at the hospital, where staff and medical equipment are always available.

  • Who "covers" the practice when your pediatrician is unavailable?

If your physician is in a group practice, it's wise to meet the other doctors, since they may treat your child in your pediatrician's absence. If your pediatrician practices alone, he probably will have an arrangement for coverage with other doctors in the community. Usually your pediatrician's answering service will automatically refer you to the doctor on call, but it's still a good idea to ask for the names and phone numbers of all the doctors who take these calls--just in case you have trouble getting through to your own physician.

If your child is seen by another doctor at night or on the weekend, you should check in by phone with your own pediatrician the next morning (or on Monday). Your doctor will probably already know what has taken place, but this phone call will give you a chance to bring him up to date and reassure yourself that everything is being handled as he would recommend.

  • How often will the pediatrician see your baby for checkups and immunizations?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends checkups by one month, and at two, four, six, nine, twelve, fifteen, eighteen, and twenty-four months, and annually after that. If the doctor routinely schedules examinations more or less frequently than this, discuss the difference with her.

  • What are the costs of care?

Your pediatrician should have a standard fee structure for hospital and office visits as well as after-hours visits and home visits (if he makes them). Find out if the charges for routine visits include immunizations. If not, ask how much they will cost. Also, if you are covered by a managed-care system (HMO, etc.), check whether the pediatrician is on the panel of physicians.

After these interviews, you need to ask yourself if you are comfortable with the pediatrician's philosophy, policies, and practice. You must feel that you can trust him or her and that your questions will be answered and your concerns handled compassionately. You should also feel comfortable with the staff and the general atmosphere of the office.

Once your baby arrives, the most important "test" of the pediatrician you have selected is how he or she cares for your child and responds to your concerns. If you are unhappy with any aspect of the treatment you and your child are receiving, you should talk to the pediatrician directly about the problem. If the response does not address your concerns properly, or the problem simply cannot be resolved, don't hesitate to change physicians.

    Very helpful, especially for 1st time parents

    We received this book as a gift and it has been extremely helpful. It breaks down the months in key milestones with information/guidelines on eating and sleeping patterns as well as behavioral. Our baby was almost 'textbook' you could say! Being 1st time parents we had lots of questions and often feel as if we're treading new territory every day. This book has been a valuable tool for us and I now buy it for my friends as a gift!

    THIS BOOK IS MY BEST FRIEND!!!!!!!!!

    I buy this for everyone that I know is having a baby!!!!!!!!!I recieved this book as a gift at my shower and it has gotten me through so much! When our boy was 10 weeks, the doctors kept telling us he had a "cold" over the phone and we kept insisting it could be more! Thanks to this book, I would not give up and pushed to get in to the office....we found he had RSV and had to be hospitalized....thanks to my gut instinct and the knowledge of this book...my little boy is now 3 and has no lung damage from the RSV!!!!! It reads very easily and spells things out in regular terms!!!!! It is also easy to cross reference and find topics!!!!

    2 of the Best Books on the market for parents of infants-preschoolers (2's, 3's, 4's, & 5's)

    CARING FOR YOUR BABY AND YOUNG CHILD; BIRTH TO AGE 5 is a wonderful comprehensive reference book that I highly recommend to the new parents in my practice. It offers an abundance of helpful, sound information addressing the many questions and concerns that arise during the early years. The book's reassuring compassionate tone and easy to understand presentation is just what an anxious parent craves. It is especially helpful in explaining common health issues thereby often relieving a worried parent on the spot about those many wonders and fears that occasionally come to mind. Although this book is a weighty compilation of a wide spectrum of information, it is conveniently formatted for quick referral. My only criticism of this book is that the advice relating to discipline strategies and child development insights for the 2-to-5-year-old isn't nearly as helpful or extensive as the medical information or the infant information. Therefore I would like to also recommend THE POCKET PARENT to fill that need. This outstanding book is designed as a troubleshooting A-Z guide written exclusively for parents with preschoolers (2's, 3's, 4's, & 5's). This book is literally pocket-sized--totally portable-- easy to consult at a moment's notice-wherever...all you have to do is look it up...40 common worrisome behavior issues are addressed such as ANGER, BAD WORDS, BEDTIME, BITING, FEARS, THE 'GIMMES', INTERRUPTING, LYING, MEALTIME, MORNING 'CRAZIES', POTTY TRANING, QUIBBLING SIBLINGS, SEPARATION ANXIETY, STRANGERS, TANTRUMS, WHINING, and more. It is written in the same friendly, non-judgemental style as CARING FOR YOUR BABY... It is filled with compassion, humor and excellent practical advice. The format is geared to busy parents-- loaded with hundreds of quick bits of wit and wisdom to help a parent restore his or her sanity! The authors call the bullets of tips...'Sanity Savers'. The short anecdotes clearly illustrate the suggested strategies, often demonstrating the exact words to try in order to get cooperation and compliance from the child. Parenting, especially in the early years can feel scary, lonely, and quite frustrating, especially on a very bad day. The large encyclopedic CARING FOR YOUR BABY AND YOUNG CHILD; BIRTH TO AGE FIVE along with the small POCKET PARENT are 2 different yet very compatible books, both embracing the same underlying positive perspective and attitude for raising healthy, happy children. Keep them handy whenever you need some fast answers, positive discipline strategies, or just a little 'verbal hug' to reassure you that you are not losing your mind and that everything will be OK!

    Book gives 1st time Parents Life saving tools.

    This book gave me (1st time parent) the guidance and step by step help I needed, when at 1:30AM my 4 day old infant began screaming at the top of his lungs without stopping. In clear, concise language I was guides through a step by step process as to what to do to figure out what was going on. As a result, I was able to talk informatively and capably with the pediatrician so that together we could take a quick course of action. When I went back to work I bought my babysitter a copy and it has helped us both enormously. Authors, Thank You for writing it; and Publishers/BN thank you for keeping the price affordable.
