Medical knowledge changes faster than the speed of book publishing so when it comes to a child’s health, having up-to-date information is important. This ebook gives the reader access to the information within days of the final edit and offers free electronic updates.
Parents are now able to quickly access helpful information about feeding, sleeping, development, and common ailments, as well as a glossary of terms and conditions. It utilizes the technology of the electronic format for portability and ease of navigation, with links to useful resources within the book and online.
“You won't find gimmicks, guilt or invented vaccine schedules in my book,” Dr. Raja said. “It has recommendations based on real science; that is the only way parents can truly make educated decisions on what is right for their family.”
Dr. Raja, a board-certified pediatrician, has seen the dangers of outdated and inaccurate medical recommendations in her hospital and office practices as well as her volunteer work overseas. The real risks and potential benefits of everything from naturopathic teething treatments to home remedies for colds are accessible in this book.
10% of book proceeds will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
