Overview

When dealing with a sick baby or child, it is vital that parents have the information they need at their fingertips.Baby & Child Health: Everything You Need to Know is the most accessible at-home guide for parents. It gives parents the knowledge to look after a sick or injured child (from birth to 10 years), and the confidence to know when to contact a doctor or take their child to hospital. Symptoms charts with clear "yes/no" answers make it easy for parents to find out what might be wrong and to know when to seek medical help. These cross-refer to more than 150 conditions covered in the book.Clear photography illustrates step-by-step practical instructions for first aid and ways to alleviate symptoms. The focus of this book is what the parent can do, and photos illustrate, for example, how to relieve the discomfort of chickenpox and prevent scabs from becoming infected, what to keep in the medicine cabinet, and ways to cool down a child with a fever.
