While the bookstore shelves are overflowing with "babys first year" books, what's been missing from the market up until now is a lively, well-written book that is targeted specifically at Canadian parents. While some might argue that theres no need for such a book (after all, dont babies develop in much the same way on both sides of the border?), there are enough differences between the U.S. and Canadian child-rearing environments to warrant a guide that is written expressly for Canadian parents.
For one thing, Canadian mothers have much lengthier maternity leaves than American mothers something that affects decisions concerning breastfeeding, the introduction of solid foods, sleep practices, and so on and Canadians also tend to take a more informed approach to such infant-health issues as immunization.
And then theres the fact that major health authorities such as the Canadian Paediatric Society and the American Academy of Pediatrics dont always see eye-to-eye on such important issues as infant circumcision, immunization, the length of time that breastfeeding is recommended, to name just a few.
Canadian parents need a baby book that is both relevant and informative and that cites Canadian rather than American health authorities on a range of important infant health issues.
