Raising young children and keeping them healthy is never easy, but doing so while relying on erroneous or misleading information can make parenting a particularly daunting challenge. To help guide parents through the myths and confusions of raising a child, Dr. Adesman wrote BabyFacts - the only book on the market focused specifically on widespread misconceptions regarding children's health, safety and development.

BabyFacts is the go-to book for parents who want to make the best decisions for their children. Written by a leading pediatrician in a clear and easy-to-read style, BabyFacts identifies and demystifies more than 150 myths -- offering animated and realistic explanations that appeal with sincerity, reassurance and conviction to parents and caretakers alike. Each myth is followed by a fact-packed explanation full of practical information that can be put to use immediately (or that will set a parent's mind at ease).

BabyFacts covers a wide range of infant, toddler and preschooler issues -- including breastfeeding and nutrition, toileting, growth and development, accident prevention, skin concerns, sleep habits, food allergies and childhood illnesses.

BabyFacts was written primarily for parents of babies and young children. Nonetheless, daycare workers, early childhood professionals and grandparents will also enjoy reading and learn much from this book.
