Overview

Is my child too sick to go to daycare today?
When can my child go back to daycare?
What should I look for when I am considering a daycare center for my new baby?
Every parent of a child in daycare asks these questions. Dr. Leigh Grossman's new book, THE PARENT'S SURVIVAL GUIDE TO DAYCARE INFECTIONS, presents the facts about different germs and provides guidance on what to do when your child has been exposed to or is sick with a specific infection.

How do I choose a daycare center that uses current infection control practices?
How long does a child need to stay home when they do have an infection?
Can I prevent infection in my child?
What are the appropriate and inappropriate uses of antibiotics?
What are the best practices for treating a specific childhood infection?
Designed to be the home reference book for parents of young children in daycare and preschool, THE PARENT'S SURVIVAL GUIDE TO DAYCARE INFECTIONS is a comprehensive and clear book, with an easy-to-use format, informational quick reference tables, and a detailed index. Providing up-to-date guidance, the book includes contributions from 39 pediatric expert physicians. With chapters on most of the infections that parents of children in daycare and preschool encounter, the authors explain what the illness is, how the infection is spread, how the illness is diagnosed, how long it lasts and how long the child needs to stay at home.

This book is a ready reference for the children in your life and an excellent gift for the new parent.
