Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This comprehensive guide is a revised edition of a book that was originally published in 1983. Jones, author of Guide to Baby Products (Consumer Reports Bks., 1991. 3d ed.) offers advice on how to soothe a crying or colicky baby. She gives basic, down-to-earth advice as well as a wealth of information about colic, allergies, drug reactions, fussy babies, and so forth. Each chapter has useful charts with information on various problems, their descriptions, and possible solutions. Also included are tips and facts for new parents. A useful section offers 100 tips for parents with fussy babies. The last chapter discusses overcoming stress and depression. This is one of those books that every parent should have before a child is born. Highly recommended for public libraries.-- Jennifer Langlois, Missouri Western State Coll. Lib., St. Joseph
