Overview

The Essential Parents' Guide to the Best Conventional and Natural Medicines for Your Child

From feeding to healing, clothing to washing, raising children naturally can be a daunting task—unless you know how. Natural Baby and Childcare shows you how to complement conventional therapy with natural treatments such as homeopathic and herbal medicine; how to bathe your child without using damaging chemicals; and how to find healthy, organic food for your baby. As a physician and a mom, Dr. Lauren Feder skillfully bridges the divide between medicine and motherhood, empowering parents to personalize traditional child-rearing practices to their own child.

Natural Baby and Childcare answers common questions such as:
* Do homeopathic medicines have any side effects?
* What alternatives are there to wasteful or harmful baby products, such as plastic diapers and chemical-laden diaper creams?
* Can vaccines cause autism or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome?

In addition to shedding light on controversial topics such as antibiotic overuse and vaccination, Dr. Feder offers a complete A to Z guide to treating common childhood conditions naturally and a handy directory of easy-to-use natural medicines and home remedies. With information for children from birth to adolescence, Natural Baby and Childcare is a comprehensive, intelligent, practical, and reassuring guide to raising healthy and happy children.

    Life Saver!

    We can't recommend Dr. Feder's book highly enough! We refer it to it daily for our baby girl and ourselves. Dr. Feder explains everything in a concise and easy to understand manner. We love that she provides the conventional, home, and homeopathic treatments for each illness. We have learned so much about providing our daughter with natural remedies instead of running to the doctor for every little sniffle. This book would make an excellent shower gift!

    Best info on vaccines I have found

    Easy to read. The information on immunization was the best to be found. I am new to holistic pediatrics. I know as a grandparent that I know the best for my new grandson, but needed back up. The wait and see approach is long, but the results are life changing/read this first before you medicate your child.
