Let’s face it: babies don’t do much. So when we want to know how a baby is feeling, we look at how they are eating, sleeping, and pooping. But baby digestion is a complicated landscape, and most parents struggle to interpret everything from burps and grunts to diapers and spit-up. In fact, for parents of newborns, digestive issues are one of the leading causes of pediatrician visits. Enter Bryan Vartabedian, MD, one of America’s top pediatric gastroenterologists.

Throughout, he soothes parents’ concerns and answers their most urgent question: "Is this normal?" Complete with illustrations, lively anecdotes, and a healthy dose of humor, Looking Out for Number Two is required reading for every new parent and is sure to become an instant classic.

At last we have a book for parents which focuses exclusively on stool withholding in children and how to overcome it. Inspired by the author's experience of this issue with her own son, this easy-to-understand guide gives detailed advice on every aspect of stool withholding including soiling (encopresis), toilet training, laxative medication and constipation. Stool withholding is most common in two to four year olds but it can also affect school-age children. It is often triggered by an episode of painful constipation. The child then becomes so terrified of experiencing this pain again that they hold on to their poop for days, even weeks, at a time. Just to add to the misery, stool withholding often causes children to soil their underwear. This bewildering problem can sometimes feel like a form of daily torture, not just for the child but for the whole family. Unless you've experienced this nightmare with your own child, it's impossible to imagine just how distressing it can be. After reading this, parents will have a straightforward plan of action, with lots of tips and strategies to try at home. The book also contains useful information about the laxative MiraLAX, with guidance on appropriate doses. The advice given is backed up by research, as well as the experiences of the author and other parents who have had to deal with this issue. Aimed primarily at parents, this guide should also be essential reading for healthcare professionals, teachers and anyone else who works with, or cares for, children. Stool withholding is still a widely misunderstood issue. If awareness and understanding of this subject is increased perhaps many families can be spared the misery of this very distressing problem. About the Author Sophia Ferguson has a degree in Psychology, a Masters in Applied Social Research and a great interest in all things medical and psychological. You can contact her at: www.stoolwithholding.com Reviews from the UK Edition "Stool Withholding: What To Do When Your Child Won't Poo!": "Having consulted 5 different medical practitioners about my child's issues reading this book was like a breath of fresh air and a ray of hope. It has helped me understand my child's issues differently and, after 18 months of shared anxiety, supported us in making some important positive steps with our GP in helping solve the problem in the medium to long term. Here's hoping!" S "Our three and a half year old Daughter had been stool withholding for over a year and it had a terrible affect on all of us. We thought she would eventually outgrow the problem but after a year it was obvious this wasn't going to happen. We had tried all sorts to encourage her but nothing worked. This book has saved us! I cannot recommend it enough. We followed the advice and now our Daughter is sitting on the toilet every night and pooing!" ND "If your child seems worried about going to the loo then you must read this book. I had 3 months of thinking that my 3 year old daughter was holding her poo on purpose but when I read this book everything made perfect sense. It was as though I was reading about my daughter! I was relieved to finally understand what she was going through & the advice on how to overcome the problem is straight forward & makes complete sense. We're only about 3 weeks into treatment but already I feel like I have my happy, funny & confident daughter back. Fingers crossed that we can keep going & get her sorted. I cannot recommend this book highly enough to anyone who's child is struggling to poo." Mrs F "Such a relief to know I'm not the only one trying to figure this out. Thank you so very much for writing this in a clear and concise way, not too much jargon which meant that despite being stressed about it all I still took in all the advice and support being offered.

Written during award-winning pediatrician Dr. Scott W. Cohen’s first year as a father, this book is the only one to combine two invaluable “on the job” perspectives—the doctor’s and the new parent’s. The result is a refreshingly engaging and informative guide that includes all you need to know at each age and stage of your child’s first year. Drawing on the latest medical recommendations and his experiences at home and in the office, Dr. Cohen covers everything from preparing for your baby’s arrival to introducing her to a new sibling, to those three basic functions that will come to dominate a new parent’s life. Eat, Sleep, Poop addresses questions, strategies, myths, and all aspects of your child’s development. In each instance, Dr. Cohen provides a thorough overview and a simple answer or explanation: a “common sense bottom line,” yet he doesn’t dictate. The emphasis is on doing what is medically sound and what works best for you and your baby. He also includes fact sheets, easy-to-follow diagnosis and treatment guides, and humorous daddy vs. doctor sidebars that reveal the learning curve during his fi rst year as a dad. Lively, practical, and reassuring, Eat, Sleep, Poop provides the knowledge you need to parent with confidence, to relax and enjoy baby’s fi rst year, and to raise your child with the best tool a parent can have: informed common sense.
