The book tries hard to stick to undisputed facts and solutions, but this is an impossible task. Occasionally the author's opinion makes an appearance, but such appearances are seldom and rather easy to forgive or ignore.
This book covers different stages of child development. So I don't read all of them at once, only on the sections that relate to my baby's current progress.
Dr. Spock's suggestion is "TRUST YOURSELF". He believes mom knows the unique needs of her baby, and when the world-known pediatrician told you that .. what more can you say?
However there is some important advice I don't agree with that makes it fatally flawed. This includes the promotion of fluoride, vaccines and a low fat diet for babies and children. It is important for parents to think for themselves, not be told how to live. Indigenous groups across the globe had children with healthy teeth (without fluoride) and free from modern diseases (without vaccines), by giving their children a nutrient dense whole food diet, that includes animal fats. Modern medicine, has many things wrong about it as it seems unable to prevent the onslaught of modern childhood diseases like diabetes, could the vaccine touting, low fat lifestyle be why?
