THE SALINA JOURNAL LIFE SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER B3 V PARENTING Parents-to-be, can you earn license? WEDDINGS .R. doc compiles commonly asked questions into book By LINDA CASTRONE ' r "Scripi>s Howard News Service •n "• .. ~~~ •\ Meconium is: ' A.) A rock formation on the surface of the planet Mercury. B.) A rock group that records songs written specifically for babies. C.) A rocket fuel distilled from used diapers. D.) A harmless, greenish-black substance newborns pass in their stools. If you picked D, you're one step closer to earning your Baby License, something couples should be required to get before they can have children. At least that's what Dr. David Rosenberg thinks, and he's devised the licensing exam. It's included in his new tongue-in-cheek book, "The (Official) Baby-License Exam" (House of Toast Publications, $9.95). "The nurses and I always talk Mahout this late at night," says Rosenberg, an emergency room doctor at Columbia-Health One 'Swedish Medical Center in Denver. "You have to go through all 'kinds of things to drive a car or adopt a child, but any two people with working sex organs can have a baby." And when something about the pregnancy or infant upsets them, -many of them call the emergency room for help. "People realize we're open 24 hours a day," Rosenberg says. "Some don't have a pediatrician to ask and some do but don't want to , wake them up in the middle of the ; night. Plus, there is some safety in the anonymity of an E.R." For whatever reason, Rosenberg has been hit with some of the strangest questions over the past 15 years. Things like, "What does ' the thyroid gland do? My daughter needs the information for her sci- ; ence project, and it's 3 a.m." (It ; was a slow night, so he answered the question.) He decided to compile those real-life questions into a book of ba- ' sic baby facts, "simple enough to ' draw people in," Rosenberg says. ; The multiple-choice format filled • that bill. "The (Official) Baby-License Exam" hits the high points, delivering little chunks of information . about such topics as cradlecap, mobiles, APGAR scores, emergencies and, of course, meconium. An "official baby license" is in- 1 eluded on the last page. ; The book is available at some ! Barnes and Noble bookstores. Amy and Todd O'Brien Riedel-O'Brien The Rev.
