I felt that there was a need for some good child health books, each of which would focus on a specific child health issue, that are frequently faced by the parents. For that, the website was not enough.
Child health is a nagging cause of concern. Daily new issues crop up, which make parents unsure. Some seek medical consultation but often return with a new battery of doubts. How many times can they run to the doctor? How long can a doctor reassure them? Waves of disturbing thoughts continue throughout child development. They search the web for scientific answers to their questions and follow forums on child health.
An endless number of questions pour in at "Ask the Doctor" and "Newborn Care". The same questions are repeated time and again. The result is these child health books. Tell Me the topics you desire. New ones will keep dripping in. I will try my best to write on those.
The jitters of having the baby would have hardly subsided when parents notice jitteriness in their newborn baby. Their anxiety shoots up.
