This one of a kind guide explains to new parents, in a clear and comforting tone, precisely what is happening inside their new baby's body, the reasons behind various standard post-delivery hospital procedures, and, once baby is at home, what parents can and should do before they call the doctor. In the age of managed care, many paediatricians are unable to find the time to impart even basic medical information - the very information that might reassure parents and help them understand the difference between danger signs and normal development. At the same time, many parents are unable to distil the information they get from the paediatrician, because, even when baby is perfectly healthy, visits to the doctor's office tend to be chaotic and parents may not have their wits about them, may fail to ask the very questions that are on their mind, or may feel reluctant to waste a doctor's time. For any new parent who has left a delivery room or a paediatrician's office with unanswered (and perhaps even unasked) questions, Your Newborn: Head To Toe will be an essential resource.
