Raising a healthy newborn and young toddler involves skills and information that parents need to access quickly and easily. Along with their newborns, parents are presented with the tasks of keeping them fed, clean and comforted and safe from danger and ill health. These are enormous responsibilities in themselves, which can be made even greater if a baby or toddler is problematical in any way. With little available free time, it's important that parents can readily find out what they need to know and be able to follow that advice accurately and effectively: in some cases, it may even make the difference between life and death. Today, paediatric care is the concern of many different specialists, ranging from nutritionists and breastfeeding technicians to neo-natal physicians and paediatricians to child behaviourists and psychotherapists.
