I read the first third of the book prior to birth and that stood me in good stead for early issues and questions

Invaluable, sensible, advice. I think all my questions as my first child was growing up from birth to toddler were answered. No book can fully take the place of a doctor but common issues are covered here very well and, living in Africa where getting to a doctor requires a full day, this book gave us some knowledge and plenty of peace of mind. I read the first third of the book prior to birth and that stood me in good stead for early issues and questions, e.g. croup and one febrile seizure, both of which I had read about and so had no untoward concerns when they happened. I knew what was going on and what to do. I have two gorgeous happy healthy children and, like me, there must be thousands of others around the world who owe some level of thanks to this lady for that. Before choosing this one I had reviewed several others. I also bought several others, but this is "the one".
