Your Newborn: Head to Toe: Everything You Want to Know About Your Baby's Health through The First Year

Your Newborn: Head to Toe: Everything You Want to Know About Your Baby’s Health through The First Year by Cara Familian Natterson

This one-of-a-kind primer 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 pediatricians 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 distill the information they get from the pediatrician, 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 pediatrician’s office with unanswered (and perhaps even unasked) questions, YOUR NEWBORN: HEAD TO TOE will be an essential resource.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
*Checked out from the Arlington Public Library*

Your Newborn Head to Toe is an interesting reference. When we first got here (to Arlington, Tennessee) and all my books were boxed up, we went to check out the library and I found a few interesting titles on the shelves to peruse. One of which was this book. For quick reference in reading a little in depth about specific issues dealing with very anatomical systems this is a good book. I would not necessarily buy a copy, but for checking out from the library for a reference it is good.
