    I wish I had had this book when my children were younger, as it simplifies the often-very-stressful process of determining what, I’d anything, can be done at home and when to sell professional medical help. This should be on the shelf of anyone with kids or, as in my case, grandkids. Thank you!!

    This is a fabulous tool that I wish I had when my children were young. I ordered for my daughter who has her first child and is nervous about so many things. When do I call the doc, is this normal, etc. Information is easy to find and the illustrations and flowcharts are so helpful!

There are so many things in there I hadn’t even thought about, and knowing I have this tool has given me such peace of mind! I would recommend for any parent, but especially new parents! Easy to navigate and very informative!
