Reviews - What do our customers think?
not what I expected  Jun 10, 2008
I was expecting something more detailed about the physical/developmental side of child care. It has more fluff than I would like. If I want advice on discipline, child care, anti-stress for me, etc, I will ask my mother and sisters, etc. I was looking for something that more hard cold facts, I guess. The chapter on 6 to 12 months is very small and has next to no facts, just suggestions and maybe this maybe that. I have barely touched this book.
Good overall reference book!  May 22, 2008
I've had this book for about 12 years and used it as a quick tool for information about illnesses and childhood developmental(emotional) stages. It's not the only source I turn to but it's a good source to balance out other opinions and ideas.
I just bought one for my cousin who is having a baby because it was one of my must used books on my shelf of raising children books. I especially found it helpful when my children had a skin rash or bug bite. There are
gloosy colored pictures in the back of the book of chilhood skin/eye conditions that help you to identify what different skin/eye problems look
like. There is also a 10 page atlas of the body showing diagrams of the whole body and specific parts of the body. The atlas is very thourough.
BOTH THE ATLAS AND THE SKIN/EYE CONDITIONS ARE NOT IN THE NEW VERSION of this book!!!!! I would have bought the new one but it was missing this.
Handy for long late evenings  Feb 16, 2008
I purchased this book when my youngest was a toddler (she's now 8). It had many helpful articles short enough to allow me the time to read, informative to let me know what was ahead for her age group. I still browse through it. But the best part was reaching for it when it was late at night and my kids were fighting some illness, trying to look up symptoms and read what to do. It beats dealing with gadgets late at night or waiting for return calls from the doctors. Many times I've avoided taking kids to the doctors altogether. When they've had to go to the peds then I knew what to expect. There's a newer book, but I loved this one and enjoy giving it as a gift to new moms.
Eh...  Nov 6, 2007
If you want to raise your child in a conventional American way, then this is the book for you, particularly if you are a "fundamentalist" Christian. If, however, you are interested in less conventional child-rearing advice (because that's all any baby book is, which some people forget), then you'd better spend your money elsewhere.

I am into a more natural style of child rearing. I disliked their cavalier attitude towards breastfeeding (particularly because they are Christians and GOD after all was the one that designed infants to be fed from their mothers). I take issue with any book or pediatrician that says that breastfeeding is best, but formula is practically as good, so don't worry about it if you don't want to breastfeed. It's a cop-out, and should be treated as such. Study after study shows that formula-fed babies have more health problems for their entire lives. I've read several doctors who believe formula shouldn't be available without a prescription.

I write off any book that condones crying-it-out for babies, so that was another thing. Mostly it was the whole tone of the book: ask your pediatrician about every little thing, take this medicine for this, that medicine for that, births should happen in a hospital preferably with a doctor but a nurse-midwife is okay (doesn't even mention home births or direct-entry midwives).

I like books that raise questions about the way everybody's doing it. The only questions you'll get in that direction are in the realm of religion. It never questions about any controversial topic: immunizations, home births, hospital stays, the fallacy of pediatricians, a pill for every ill. Get a book that doesn't have all the answers, as this one presumes to have.
Never Gets Old  Oct 25, 2007
This book was given to me when I had my first child 10 years ago and I still use it today! It is a wonderful reference book on EVERYTHING that relates to your children and your family! This book is so great, that I now give it as a gift to other new parents in my life.
