9780060938475: The Portable Pediatrician: A Practicing Pediatrician's Guide to Your Child's Growth, Development, Health and Behavior, from Birth to Age Five

Dr. Laura Nathanson wrote The Portable Pediatrician to help parents find the joy in parenting and gain the confidence to quickly and easily assess their child's development, medical symptoms, and behavioral problems. Parents can't always visit their pediatrician every time they have a question, but fortunately with this book they have the next best thing.

The Portable Pediatrician, one of the few child-care books written by a practicing pediatrician, offers authoritative and practical advice on:

  • Keeping up with, or even one step ahead of, your child's rapidly changing needs
  • Setting limits before the one year birthday
  • Planning the arrival of the next baby in the family
  • Coping with your own as well as with your child's separation anxiety
  • Dealing with the four I's: illnesses, injuries, immunizations, and insurance coverage
  • Getting prompt medical attention for serious crises -- and what to do in the meantime
  • Preventing childhood obesity and eating disorders later
  • Confronting complex behavior and medical problems, including ADD, autism, asthma, oppositional behavior (including potty resistance)

About the Author:

Dr. Laura Nathanson is the author of The Portable Pediatrician, as well as several other books. She has practiced pediatrics for more than thirty years, is board certified in pediatrics and peri-neonatology, and has been consistently listed in The Best Doctors in America.

From Publishers Weekly:

The updated edition of Nathanson's 1994 The Portable Pediatrician for Parents looks a lot like the original (are those the same kids on the cover?), but the author has done more than give the old version a spit and a polish: she adds, for example, essays on current concerns such as autism, drug-resistant bacteria and managed care. Divided into three main sections-The Well Child, Illness and Injury, and Pediatric Concerns and Controversies-the book helps parents understand what to expect from their children (e.g., most babies lose weight immediately after birth; most three or four year olds will begin to have questions about sex), how to parent them when they're healthy (everything from setting limits consistently to taking temperatures rectally), and what to do if they're sick (how to perform CPR; when to use Syrup of Ipecac). She also includes To-Do Lists ("Laugh at Four's jokes, even if you don't understand why they're funny), discussions of common but not serious problems, and an impressively large amount of information parents should know but maybe don't ("those bumps you see at the back of the throat are normal taste buds). It's an excellent-one might even say indispensable-resource for the new parent, and Nathanson has a great bedside manner: she shares her expertise clearly, confidently and sometimes with even a touch of humor.
