Dr. Macnab is concerned about those parents who do not enjoy being with their baby or who inadvertently neglect their child due to a lack of information. This may result in harm to the baby and may bring guilt to the parents.  He believes that KIDCARECANADA tackles these two issues together by providing information about how to simply and safely interact with children bringing lifelong benefits to them and a great deal of pleasure to the parents. Dr. Andrew Macnab MD, FRCPC, FRCPCH Paediatrician
