I'm ordering it now because I need to know about a new allergy medicine on the market and this book is the only resource that has the information that is so critical to know when you have a little one involved. I can't believe every doctor doesn't have a copy of this. I bring it to my general physician's, pediatrician's and OBs offices when i have appointments so that they can reference the tables and know how much of the medications the fetus or newborn is getting. I suffer from depression and allergies and i feel so much more confident with the drugs i take.
I can't imagine not being this informed. I highly recommend (encourage is an understatement) that anyone pregnant, invest in this book now.
If you are a nursing mom, this book will quickly become one of your favorites!
Should also be useful also during pregnancy.
As a lactation consultant I refer to it frequently, but I also enjoy browsing through it as a consumer. It's a fast reference guide to the medications my family and I use for everything from the common cold or allergies to heart medications.
I purchased this as a resource for La Leche League. We receive countless calls from mothers who are curious about which medications they can utilize while nursing. They, because of their health care providers, are frequently mis-informed. This book truly sets the record straight.
Kudos to Dr. Hale for creating such an amazing resource. His research has greatly assisted many mothers in need.
The benefit of this book over the previously mentioned is it is soft cover, smaller and more portable, not as heavy to carry.

When the book arrived it was clearly a well-used book. It was dated 2004 so many of the mentions are now outdated. Read morePublished on December 24, 2013 by Lysa Sangermano

I just purchased the updated 2006 edition from B&N. Although this book is very useful and informative, I must say I have a difficult time understanding all the medical terminology. Read morePublished on May 20, 2006 by Antonia117
