From America’s leading authorities on childcare—everything you need to know about your child’s health from birth through adolescence.

In their first app, the authors of the million-copy bestseller The Baby Book and a wide range of popular parenting guides, put a childcare encyclopedia at your fingertips.

• A searchable database—enter a keyword and find what you’re looking for
• Special “Dr. Sears Tips” throughout—expert guidance from the Searses’ vast range of knowledge and experience
• A portable medicine cabinet, listing common items to keep in the home and how best to use them
• Helpful advice about pediatric checkups and what to expect at your child’s appointments
• Growth charts—compare your child’s length, weight, and BMI with national averages

Customer Reviews

Can't scroll down on Check up list

Please fix this! I purchased this app mainly for the check up information and I can't scroll down! Very sad!

Doesn't work!

Please fix this app! It has so much potential, but instead it's a big disappointment and waste of money.


Terrible. Save your money. Pages don't scroll so you can't read anything or use the growth chart. What a waste.
