Dr Benjamin Spock revolutionised child care, and generations of parents have relied on his timeless bestseller. It remains THE source book, the most authoritative and reliable guide available. Collaborating with Dr Stephen J. Parker, Dr Spock updated and expanded his book to meet the changes and challenges of the 21st century.

Now revised by Dr Robert Needleman, it is organised for fast and easy reference, and includes entirely new sections covering adolescence and provides the latest information on topics from breastfeeding and first aid to talking to your child about sex, contraception and drugs. All Dr Spock's invaluable, time-tested advice is here, including the most current medical practices and advances in childcare. More than ever before, this essential and classic work will help all parents face their many challenges and responsibilities with new confidence and joy. As Dr Spock always said, 'Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do.'

About the Author

Dr Benjamin Spock M.D., practised paediatrics in New York City from 1933 to 1947. He then became a medical teacher and researcher at the Mayo Clinic, the University of Pittsburgh, and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. The author of eleven books, he was a political activist for causes that vitally affect children: disarmament, day care, schooling, housing, and medical care for all. He had two sons, a stepdaughter, and four grandchildren. Dr. Spock, who died March 15, 1998, at age ninety-four, was married to Mary Morgan who survives him.

Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care has been translated into thirty-nine languages and has sold fifty million copies worldwide since its first publication in 1946.
