Reasssuring advice, based on sound scientific evidence, on how to treat all common childhood illnesses is provided in this comprehensive book. Yet it is much more than an emergency health manual. Beginning in the maternity ward it guides parents through troublesome aspects of 'normal' behaviour such as eating and sleeping problems, through to advice on identifying and managing behavioural and learning problems.This best-selling Canadian children's health book has been adapted for New Zealand by paediatricians and health professionals at Starship Children's Hospital in Auckland, the University of Auckland (Injury Prevention Research Centre) and Safekids. The original book was written by highly trained paediatricians and members of the Division of General Pediatrics at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. Children get sick, and parents have anxieties at all times of the day and night. To make information easily accessible The New Zealand 3am Handbook: The most commonly asked questions about your child's health is written in a question-and-answer format which will help parents and caregivers determine when it's necessary to call a doctor or rush to an emergency department, but also to know what steps to take to make the child feel better.New Zealand royalties will go to Starship Children's Hospital.CONTENTS1.
