It always seems that kids start to get sick when the doctor's office is closed. I know this is almost always the case with my children. As a parent, it can be really nerve-wrecking to know that something is wrong with your child but are not sure what it is. Do you medicate? Do you call the doctor at home? Do you go to the ER and wait for hours and hours? The Portable Pediatrician features information on every childhood illness and emergency, including when to call the doctor, what reassuring signs can help you know your child is okay, and how to treat your child at home.
Among the scores of topics covered: teething; sprains and broken bones; nosebleeds; measles; ear infections; choking; rashes; colic; headaches; eating disorders; fever; hip pain; warts; allergies; obesity; seizures; Asperger's Syndrome; bronchitis; masturbation; sunburns; pneumonia; speech delay; lice; vomiting; asthma; heart defects; blisters; sleep problems; and more.
Review: The book is incredibly easy to use. It is set up in an A-Z format. For each problem, the signs and symptoms, causes, self-help remedies, and physician advice are listed. There are occasional illustrations and each chapter is written in easy-to-understand language with definitions of common medical terms. From my perspective, this book is a lifesaver. It will have a permanent place on my bookshelf as long as my children are kids! It covers problems and issues for children of all ages and the one time purchase is well worth the peace of mind the book gives!
