Your child’s world broadens as she becomes more mobile and vocal, and attends nursery or playgroup. In this book, designed to follow on from Dr Dawn’s Guide to Your Baby’s First Year, Dr Dawn guides you through the changes you will notice in the next three years, and helps you stay one step ahead in your child’s expanding world. She explains how to foster your child’s growing independence in eating, dressing, and bathing, while keeping him or her safe and well. It also covers illness, along with warning signs and symptoms for more serious conditions such as meningitis, and when to see a doctor. It’s also the era of tantrums and toilet training, so there’s advice on that too. Other topics include:
Development including language
Nutrition and healthy eating
Sleeping and moving from cot to bed
Bathing, toileting and hygiene
Travelling with your toddler
Developmental checks and milestones
Vaccinations and why it’s vital to have them
A to Z of toddler ailments
Medicines and first aid
Toddler safety
