Lots of medical advice with little else,
This review is from: Toddler 411: Clear Answers & Smart Advice for Your Toddler (Paperback)
I bought this book as another resource for ideas on the trickier areas of raising a toddler -- temper tantrums, taking away the pacifier, potty training and the like. I expected some medical-related chapters in addition to practical advice on other issues. After receiving the book, I eagerly sat down and started reading. To my disappointment, the book is mostly medical advice. While it's been great when I've wanted to figure out which teeth should be coming in next or narrow down what could be causing a rash, it has very little information about other topics. If you're looking for a medical reference book, this one is better than most. If you're looking for new or creative ideas on how to deal with the behavioral and social issues of raising a toddler, keep looking.

May I suggest BABY HEARTS: A Guide to Giving Your Child an Emotional Head Start by Susan Goodwyn Ph.D. and Linda Acredolo Ph.D.
I found the advice timeless.
To handle yourself, use your head..
To handle your children, use your heart.
