CHICAGO: “Welcome to parenthood—in the age of ‘information overload,’” is the opening to a new resource for parents, Baby Care Anywhere: A Quick Guide to Parenting On the Go (American Academy of Pediatrics, July 2015) by Ben Spitalnick, MD, MBA, FAAP, and Keith Siebert, MD, MBA, FAAP. This go-to guide is the perfect, handy companion for new parents who are out and about with their child at the park, grocery store, shopping mall, airport, or anywhere else when they need quick and easy-to-find answers to difficult questions.

Drs. Spitalnick and Seibert have culled essential information that addresses questions their patient families raise over and over again. “Think of it as the reference manual that should have come with your newborn,” the doctors explain.

Busy new parents can rest assured they’ll have quick access to everything they need to know about jaundice, diaper rash, earaches, immunizations, sleep, reflux, fever, and much more at their fingertips. Baby Care Anywhere addresses 150 of the most frequently asked questions and concerns raised by new parents including:

  • What to ask at checkups
  • How to identify symptoms that need a doctor’s attention
  • What the top 12 diagnoses are and how to manage them
  • What things parents need to do to keep their children safe
  • What the must-haves are when on the go

Other invaluable information includes how to find a pediatrician and make the most out of doctor visits, feeding and bathing a newborn, and the top 10 symptoms that trigger a doctor visit for children. The guide also features helpful checklists and charts that parents can fill out for their own reference.

This portable pocket guide to baby basics fits perfectly in a diaper bag or stroller pocket, making it a great resource for new moms and dads on the go. Baby Care Anywhere is an empowerment tool for families that distills critical information for quick answers to parents’ questions – saving them precious time better spent on their new bundle of joy.
