GIVEAWAY: NEW from American Academy of Pediatrics,The Big Book of Symptoms: A-Z Guide To Your Child’s Health

I read a pile of books and magazines concerning pregnancy, child birth, and newborns. I even kept one of the books under my pillow. I had morning sickness all day, all the time and somehow that one book was my remedy for feeling queasy. Of course it didn't cure the morning sickness, but the peace of mind was worth it.

The Baby is here, now what? 
A new book from American Academy of Pediatrics, THE BIG BOOK OF SYMPTOMS: A-Z GUIDE TO YOUR CHILD'S HEALTH, a resource for your child's day-to-day health and safety issues is available this August.  

I might keep this one under my pillow too- but it will be on my bookshelf for quick reference.

In this book, parent's grandparents, and caregivers, can read over everyday symptoms your child may be exhibiting. I found the book to be easily navigated, informative, and a wonderful resource for any parent/caregiver. 

What a great baby shower gift!

  • How to handle colicky newborns that cry 3 to 5 hours a day.
  • How to ease your toddler into a normal sleeping routine, so you can all sleep.
  • Is it a fever, a symptom of something else, an illness? Pay attention to other symptoms before giving fever reducing medicines.
