The Canadian Paediatric Society Guide to Caring for Your Child from Birth to Age Five is the complete parenting guide from Canada's leading child and youth health care experts. The CPS - together with paediatricians from across the country - created this friendly and authoritative resource so that Canadian parents can be sure they have the best information at their fingertips. Focusing on health, growth and development, safety, nutrition, and with a special section dedicated to emotional well-being, this book gives you the answers you need, from the organization that doctors and parents have relied upon for decades.

Organized into age-specific sections, this book makes it easy to jump in and out in a hurry. Inside you'll find:
  • Answers to your questions abouth health, safety, and development from birth to age five.
  • Easy-to-read tables and charts.
  • Expert advice of whether to "mention it at the next doctor's appointment", "make an appointment to see the doctor", or "go to a clinic or emergency room immediately".
  • The truth about common child care myths in special "Myth Busters", written by Canadian paediatricians.
  • Advice on nurturing your child's emotional and mental health - how to create a positive environment and spot problems early.
  • And much more.
The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) has been working for children since 1922. Today more than 2,000 paediatricians from across Canada belong to the CPS.
