This is an excellent, excellent book - it will tell you when to go to the emergency room and when not to. Can't tell you how many times I have pulled this out in the middle of the night while my baby was screaming and it told us exactly what to do. The photos and diagrams are excellent especially when trying to figure out bug bites from rashes from allergic reactions. It's a great gift for a newly married couple or for a first baby.
