If your kid eats this book Giveaway...

As an Emergency Room pediatrician, Dr. Lara Zibners has seen it all. She's cared for a portion of the 25 million children in the U.S. who are taken to the ER each year-and she knows that more than 50% of these visits may be unnecessary. IF YOUR KID EATS THIS BOOK, EVERYTHING WILL STILL BE OKAY shows parents when they may need to take action, and when they might be able to just go back to bed and call their doctor in the morning. With sections such as "In the Diaper" and "His Noggin and the Nervous System," Dr. Zibners covers every part of the body and offers sound advice (for example, did you know that oil is the best remedy for dissolving superglue between body parts?), all while maintaining a lively and often hilarious tone.
Finally, no more frantic late-night searches through the "why to buy," "how to diaper," or "what to feed him" sections found in other childcare books to find out if little Franny needs to go to the ER. This book focuses on the truly important questions, like how to keep her from electrocuting herself in the first place. Not every child has a pediatrician with specialized emergency room experience living in her home. But this book just might be the next best thing.

What a great book to have on hand! I enjoyed reading this and learned some things too. I also liked the accident prevention chapter.

Thanks to Hachette Book company I get to give away 5 copies of this book! To enter leave a comment on this post telling me why you think this book would be good for you :) . Enter by June 16th! I will post the winners on June 17th! (Only residents of US or Canada are eligible. No PO boxes please) Good Luck everyone :)

Here is why this book would be good for me: yesterday my son swallowed a cherry pit. I wondered for a minute if I should call the doctor's office, or if he would be okay. It sounds like this book would probably answer my question!!

Me said...

I could sooo use this book. At least once a day I wonder "Should I call the doctors?"

Brooke said...

I need this because I'm having a new baby and I forgot all of the crazy things that toddlers do! I really think this would come in handy.

I've discovered there is a fine line between hypochondria and neglect. Back in the fall, my 2 yr. old had been sick for a couple of days. On day 3, he developed a low grade fever and that night he complained of a boo-boo in his ear. I got him into the doctor the next day to be told he had "rip-roaring" ear infections.

Heather said...

I'd love to win because the information looks like it could really help mom's with little ones who have questions and aren't sure where to get the answers.

What a practical book! We don't have medical insurance, so something like this would sure be helpful with my girl!

Tamster said...

This sounds like a helpful book to have around with small children. :-)

Shimmy Mom said...

What a great book. I love the title!
*hugs*

Brie said...

This book definitely sounds like something that I could use. I'm a very clutzy person and my son seems to have inherited my clutziness. It would be great to have a book like this on hand. I'm sure I would get a lot of use out of it. And maybe I could prevent some of our daily accidents from happening. Thanks.
