Sick Baby? A Pediatric Nurse Answers New Parents' Questions

ABOUT THE BOOK

Having counseled parents on thousands of calls over approximately a decade as a pediatric advice nurse, I have found that upwards of 95% of all parents call about only a handful of problems. These problems include such common ailments as fever, upper respiratory infection, diarrhea, and vomiting. While each call is unique, much of the advice I give to parents about these common problems is not. Most of my answers could be applied to nearly any child with the same condition. For that reason, I am able to share my advice in written form with you.

In the following chapters, I address what -- based on my experience -- are the twelve most common healthcare questions of new parents. While being able to discuss these issues directly with a pediatrician or nurse is preferable, life does not always cooperate. There undoubtedly will be times when your child is sick and talking with a healthcare professional is simply not an option. It is for these times, in particular, that this book was written. Hopefully, this book will provide a bit of knowledge and a touch of confidence, which when combined with plenty of love, will be all the medicine you need.

Of course, this book is not intended to serve as a substitute for being seen by a medical professional. You should consult your physician for any medical diagnosis and in the case of an emergency. The purpose of the book is to instill emotional comfort and intellectual confidence for new parents dealing with common ailments their children may face. I hope to achieve this goal by sharing my experiences and the experiences of the hundreds of new parents that have called me in the middle of the night.
