More than 65 years ago, Dr Spocks Baby and Childcare has been read by parents all over the world. Now, for the first time, his iconic book has been updated and adapted specifically for families in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
The world-famous parenting book that revolutionized childcare now specially adapted for parents in the Indian subcontinent.
Parents in the south Asian subcontinent have a lot of the same questions as parents everywhere, but they also face challenges that are unique to their environment. The pace of change means that, like it or not, as a parent in India today you must make choices: if you are a traditionalist, do you follow your family's traditions absolutely, or only part-way? If you are preparing your children to take their places in the world of tomorrow, how can you best do that? You may choose to emulate some aspects of parenting as it is done in the US or UK. But which aspects? Organised for fast and easy reference, and written in collaboration with Indian paediatricians, Dr Spock's landmark book includes the latest information on all aspects of child-rearing, from breastfeeding and first aid to talking to your child about personal issues. All Dr Spock's invaluable, time-tested advice is here, including the most current medical practices and advances in childcare, but tailored for an Indian market. More than ever before, this essential and classic work will help all parents face their many challenges and responsibilities with new confidence and joy. As Dr Spock always said: Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.
