Written by Jeremy Friedman, MB.ChB, FRCP(C) and Norman Saunders, MD, FRCP(C) of The Hospital for Sick Children.
Published by Robert Rose Inc., 2007.


Despite planning, nothing can quite prepare you for the big step from pregnancy to parenting. And what can make it even more challenging is all the contradictory and sometimes confusing information that comes from well-intentioned friends, family, co-workers and complete strangers!

Created by leading experts at the world renowned Hospital for Sick Children, Canada’s Baby Care Book covers an extensive range of topics clearly and succinctly. You’ll find information on everything from what to expect in the delivery room and the tests your baby will immediately receive to signs of illness in a newborn to feeding basics and crib safety, and so much more. One hundred and fifty specially commissioned "real life" photographs complement the text and illustrate additional instructions and information. This is truly the most complete book on baby care on the market.
