The Canadian Paediatric Society Guide to Caring for Your Child from Birth to Age Five

Dr. Diane Sacks · 2009

Dr. Diane Sacks and the CPS have compiled the best in evidence-based information relating to child health and development into a guide full of easy-to-apply advice. This book will be a “go to” resource for generations to come.

Written using clear language, it guides parental decision-making based on three distinct recommendations: “mention at the next doctor’s appointment,” “make an appointment to see the doctor,” or “proceed directly to a clinic or emergency room.”

The book, which is based on CPS recommendations, provides current information about preparing for baby’s arrival, promoting child health, understanding growth and development milestones, and how to navigate the health care system. It also discusses how to foster good mental health while being able to spot emotional problems and developmental warning signs.

It is a reliable resource for parents of young children that will help them make informed decisions about their child’s well being.
