This is a very helpful informative volume for any parent


Review posted October 15, 2017


This is one of those books that is passed on to the upcoming generation. It is sometimes difficult to find good and complete care for your children and for the most part, going to a doctor's appointment can sometimes be more for the parent and needed reassurance. Here is an in-house guide that any parent can use for that much needed reassurance and information from medical professions with years and years of the experience we want them to have. Use it as a baby shower gift.

This book is extremely user friendly. It contains a comprehensive list of childhood medical situations and gives you a easy to use key to help a parent to decide whether or not they should treat at home or to seek further medical care. Easy to use flow charts are the highlight of this book, I would recommend it to any new or seasoned parent.
