A revised edition with new chapters on helping a child to achieve its potential and on child health surveillance. Other chapters have been rewritten and revised. Special attention is paid to recognition of the "normal", particularly to variations not amounting to disease.
In this revised edition there are alterations and additions to the three chapters on breast feeding, with a discussion of infantile colic, rewritten chapters on physical growth, sleep problems, travel problems, the prevention of infection and the prevention of accidents, with completely new chapters on helping a child to achieve its potential and on the controversial matter of child health surveillance. Its 300 new references have been also been added. The author has continued to pay special attention to the recognition of the "normal" and particularly to variations from the normal not amounting to disease, and the reasons for those variations. This has applied particularly to physical growth, physical features, normal development, and all behaviour problems. In addition, during his years of paediatric experience the author recorded all the questions wich mothers asked him in his hospital practice and child health clinics, and in this book has tried to cover all their queries when they did not relate to actual diseases. Thus the book should be useful for family doctors, clinical medical officers, nurses, teachers and others concerned with child health.
