I debated about buying this because I couldn't find much info about the contents, but I took a chance and I'm so glad I did! If you love "Be Your Own Doctor", imagine an appendix all about pediatrics, and you have this book. It really is a companion to "Be Your Own Doctor" and refers to that for some of the remedies, so it does not stand alone, but it is still amazing and even better than the first book (if that's possible!).

There are some small color photos and entertaining drawings, but that isn't the big selling point. The best thing is what it contains. With the voice of personal stories and years of wisdom as a birth attendant and mother, it covers everything from pregnancy through birth, infancy, and childhood diseases, with clear instructions on how to adjust doses. There are multiple treatments suggested. Yes, kerosene and brown sugar is one of the options for croup, but there are three other things you can try first, and after all this is a book for ideas -- you are the one responsible for your family's health and need to make your own decisions! There is a good section on vaccines with reasons to be cautious and ways to make them safer for your body if you do need to vaccinate. Mrs. Weaver is against homeopathics and anything new age, but she believes herbs are God's gift to us for healing. She stresses the importance of a good diet, digestion and elimination as the foundation for good health.

If you're like me and looking for a table of contents before you buy, the reason you can't find it online is because it's three pages long -- this book covers a lot! I especially love the supply list and suggestions for setting up your household first-aid kit.

I can't even remember how many times I've used this book or Rachel's Be Your Own Doctor to treat a member of my family. The remedies work--in some cases much better than the medicine prescribed by our family physician. I bought her book for all of my daughters/DILs because it is so important to have on hand.

This and 'Be Your Own Doctor' are amazing books that provide helpful information for those who don't want to go to the doctor for every small thing. One of the greatest purchases I have made!
