Dr. Spock was considered the baby care guru in the 1950's and many parents took his advice as the word of the Lord. I have no doubt that after years of research, and of practicing pediatrics, that he is very knowledgeable in the field of baby and childcare. However, the revised edition of his once revered book is not my first choice for obtaining information.
This book covers everything under the sun, but perhaps it is too comprehensive and not detailed enough as some of the other books out there. Dr. Spock writes in a condescending tone that sounds more like he is talking to his young children, instead of adults with children seeking information. He is preachy, instead of informative, and speaks in absolutes and generalizations.
Getting your baby to sleep through the night is a hot topic where everyone claims to have the solution. I believe that many of the methods have the potential to work, but Dr. Spock's suggestion is cruel and may even border on child abuse. He suggests that you let your baby cry in their crib for as long as it takes until they fall asleep, and that under no circumstances should you go in to check on them. The clincher is his advice that you should not go to your baby even if he vomits because he gets so upset. He says you can clean it up after your baby falls asleep! Maybe Dr. Spock should be claiming he has frontal lobe disorder!
If you are looking for a reference book that touches a little bit on everything you can imagine, then this may be the book for you. Otherwise, I think your money is better spent elsewhere.

Das beste Buch gerade für Eltern mit dem ersten Kind, einfach alles was man sich so fragen könnte ist drin, ob Ernährungsfragen oder Erziehungsfragen, alles wird abgedeckt, Schwerpunkt auf 0-3 Jahre , aber das Buch behandelt alle Themen bis 18.te Lebensjahr. Uns hat es gerade die ersten Lebenswochen sehr geholfen, wir schauen auch heute immer mal wieder rein. Und haben es bereits verschenkt und begeistertes Feedback bekommen, auch weil es so leicht runter zulesen ist. Wie die deutsche Ausgabe ist, kann ich nicht beurteilen.

When I became a mother, I was recommended this book by friends who had travelled this path before. Naturally, I decided I had to have it, because I was told that solutions to most of my problems could be found in it. When I finally did possess it, when my baby was about a month old, I realised that I had started on the wrong foot. So I backtracked, and tried to follow Spock's advice. Some answers seemed to work, others didn't. The book makes for terrific reading -- but more as a work of fiction. I soon figured out that most of Spock's words of wisdom simply did not hold true. Especially how to ease the baby into a feeding schedule--my daughter's a year old now and she still doesn't have one! On how to move painlessly from liquids to solids -- I tried every method in the book, but the transition was a nightmare which will haunt me until the end. On getting the baby to sleep in a separate room -- she still sleeps with me. And somewhere around the sixth month, I just stopp! ed reading Spock. It was much easier to take each day as it came, and use my own intuition. And once I stopped depending on the book and the obsession to do it Spock's way, parenting became much easier. The book is now gathering dust on my shelf. I do refer to it once in a while -- the section on illnesses is quite good -- but I wouldn't recommend it to any new mother. It's best to trust one's own judgement. You might make mistakes, but you'll learn from them -- and faster.

Some themes in this book should not be followed! The sections on jealousy are based on a weird Freud like interpretation and can do great harm! Please look deeper - search out other more modern and informed books on certain sections of 'child development' as a paragraph or two really isn't going to prevent some of the real problems that can arise..... Buyer beware. Love the book though. Daring in its scope.

Now a grandmother of six and a supervising professional in the educational/social work field, I have bought every edition since my oldest daughter was born in 1960. I give Dr. Spock ONLY four stars because we must give ourselves a star for making choices and having our own opinions. We must take what is offered and think on it, then decide if the answers fit us...Dr. Spock was a life saver to me, many late nights when my children were running temperatures, had a rash, cried inconsolably with earache pain. If you can't call a doctor at that hour, it's great to have had a book to turn to, to console mom and to reassure her that her special prize is going to be okay after the time for the illness passes. I remember giving alcohol sponges to my children with 104+ and putting them in tepid baths to quickly reduce their temperature. It may not be recommended today, but it sure helped me then. I am sure many things today, will be frowned upon years from now. In the old days of the 60s and 70s there weren't many books to fall back on that were so "user friendy." So I owe Dr.Spock a vote of thanks for his help then, but tip our hats to the newcomers also.

"Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care" (1997 Ed.) is as good as it gets and is still the right book for new parents. Clearly outlined, it's a snap to find answers to the hundreds of questions that trouble new and re-newed parents alike. Explanations are carefully drawn in a straightforward manner that doesn't belittle parents seeking basic information about how to tell the difference between measles and a reaction to a new food. Spock was the first to understand that caring for young children according to strict time schedules was as unpopular with sensitive parents as it was unpleasant for newborns. Each parent has always been encouraged to use his/her own judgment while at the same time keeping ahead of the child. The newly initiated parent is searching for the right technique, a balancing act that becomes even more difficult when a parent must return to the workplace. Spock and Rothenberg have included insights about this transition period in the life of a young family. Still a 10 on my scale.

I almost gave no star to this book. However, it does give sound nutritional advice, and Dr. Spock went out on a limb to state "there's no solid medical evidence to support routine circumcision". He also states the obvious, that breastfeeding is best. For those things I give him a star. As for the rest of the book, I might reccomend certain common sense chapters on safety and hygene to teenage parents but the rest is dangerously out of date. That parents of today are still buying a book that advocates letting a child cry "it" out, and suggests that it is possible to "spoil" an INFANT by giving it attention and affection is disturbing. This book was given to me by a relative who's parenting style is downright abusive and she swears by it. I wholeheartedly reccomend THE BABY BOOK by Dr. William Sears and Martha Sears RN over this one any day.

As a new father, this book has been nothing short of a godsend for my wife and I. everything we have looked up has been right on the money, from colds to teething and sleeplessness. This is a must have for any parent's bookshelf. I must completely disagree with FARR's comments about this book - it appears that he/she considers themselves the absolute authority on raising children. Good parenting COMBINES elements of this book with the individual's own mores and values. Political grandstanding aside, it appears that FARR's comments appear as nothing more than disgruntled jealousy of an author whose book has accompanied millions of families through childhood and into the next generation.
And as far as "timely demise"? Well - that was just tasteless!

Dr. Benjamin Spock's classic child care compendium is a tips & tactics guide for people who are both serious and sensitive about their parenting. Dr. Spock's books -- 1st edition to this last one -- have always filled in for that missing aunt, mother or grandma who doesn't live in our nuclear households anymore. The Doc says, "Just the facts." Which is why I find those who diss Dr. Spock -- for example, "farrar" - the lawyer at Columbia -- to be so laughable. According to these Spock Opponents, poor Dr. Spock can be blamed for EVERYTHING, from self-absorbed Yuppies and 1960s free love to [no doubt] Ebolla Zaire, the Plague and Budget Deficits. "Farrar" and Company should take it to the right wing of the GOP ... not THE Baby Doc.
