Decades ago, I had referred to a book called Dr Spock’s Baby and Child Care…
It was invaluable especially as we had lived in remote places (to put your doubts at rest.. let me say we always had a Doctor at our base) and this was a huge help..
|That’s my decades old copy!|
In this Internet age, I was unsure about the status of hard copy books and if they have any takers at all.
But I was pleasantly surprised to see that new parents in my family are referring to ‘books’ as I know them. Some of the authors have associated websites which means there is access to images, data and information that cannot be put into a book .
Yet another surprise was now, there was a Dr Spock series specially for India.
What to Expect the 1st Year by Heidi Murkoff has answered many of our questions and doubts.
I am sure there are many more informative books. Which do you refer to or recommend?
I am sure my thoughts will cause a deja vu to some of you, especially anyone who has hosted a new born.
I would love to hear from you!
