Format: Paperback
This would be a great gift for new parents - it is a wonderful resource for parents who want the most information possible when making health care decisions for their children. It includes everything from more conventional treatments for illnesses to less conventional methods such as dietary changes and homeopathy.
This book is also a great reference for parents who are unfamiliar with less conventional treatments - it gives helpful descriptions of what homeopathy and other natural methods actually are, the principles for treatment they use, and why these methods work. It is written in an easy-to-use format and really opened my eyes to alternative methods of helping my child stay healthy.
The only thing I feel should be omitted from this book is the section on time-outs - I didn't buy a health book for it's parenting method, and would prefer not to be given parenting suggestions from this author. Otherwise, it's a great book.

I love this book! It covers every childhood illness that you can think of and gives alternative medicine/healing methods and also explains what the common conventional treatment would be. Helped to inform me when my child is coming down wiht something. Has loads of preventative herbal remedies and when to you them. Gives information on vaccines, an unbasis look at what the pros and cons are. I will use this book for reference forever!

This book contains any common and uncommon childhood illnesses I can think of. It's a must for any new parent, like myself. You never know when your internet might not always be there to search a certain illness and its symptoms, which is why it's great to purchase a detailed book such as this to have as ready reference. It lists very practical conventional and natural remedies to every illness.

It's a wonderful book - I was very impressed. I highly recommend it to anyone!

This book is a wonderful addition to a healthcare library, but it shouldn't be the only book in it. When my children were exposed to hand-foot-and-mouth disease, I found nothing to help in this book. On the other hand "Baby and Child Care" by James Dobson did address the issue.

This book is a great baby-shower gift. A real must have for reference in the home if you have children. I have only had it for two weeks and have used it several times already. I love that it gives you different options to make an educated choice as a parent on how to treat illness - conventional medicine, homeopathy, herbal and acupressure are the ones I have already consulted.

I'm currenty building a homeopathic home kit using the recommendations in the book. For each ailment, it tells you different approaches and what your doctor will probably reccomend for it, then you can judge what you think is best for your child. I absolutely love this book and love the straight forward explanations of alternative and conventional treatments. So far, I have managed to avoid antibiotics by using a garlic and oil tincture in my sons ear, and I am currently studying the nutrition section. Next I want to hit the acupressure sections and learn more in this area. I am so thankful to have this book - it's a must have.
