I loved this book. It is extremely helpful and reassuring. I even bought a copy of it for my mother.

Excellent source for yourself and your children. We refer to the book weekly with the hurts and woes of our family. It actually helps us relate our symptoms to our doctor for better results and fills in the gaps left by doctors. A must for parenthood!
