5.0 out of 5 stars Good old Dr Spock
Good old Dr Spock. He is the best. He knows that at heart we all want to raise civil, friendly, happy, confident children, and he shows us how to steer things so we get one. His descriptions of children at different ages and stages - in all their individuality and difference - is spot on. He is so SENSIBLE, and yet he understands the worries of mothers better than any...

3.0 out of 5 stars Get an earlier edition
Dr Spock's Baby and Child Care is a great book, but this applies only to the versions written by Dr Spock himself.

Sadly, since he died in 1998 the publishers have used his name as a brand for many books that were not written by him. You might think that this book would be different, seen as Benjamin Spock is listed as its author, but it isn't. The book has...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mindful Parenting Points Mixed with Questionable Advice, 22 Dec 2008
Some parents might find this book reassuring. There probably is not a question that isn't answered in this giant book. I like Dr. Spock's reassuring tone, and suggestions that encourage bonding with babies, as well as avoiding television for children. For parents who like the mainstream medical perspective on child raising, this book may be for you.

However there is some important advice I don't agree with that makes it fatally flawed. This includes the promotion of fluoride, vaccines and a low fat diet for babies and children. It is important for parents to think for themselves, not be told how to live. Indigenous groups across the globe had children with healthy teeth (without fluoride) and free from modern diseases (without vaccines), by giving their children a nutrient dense whole food diet, that includes animal fats. Modern medicine, has many things wrong about it as it seems unable to prevent the onslaught of modern childhood diseases like diabetes, could the vaccine touting, low fat lifestyle be why?

Review is by Ramiel Nagel author of Healing Our Children: Because Your New Baby Matters! Sacred Wisdom for Preconception, Pregnancy, Birth and Parenting (ages 0-6) & Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities with Nutrition (First Edition).
