If a 375-page book on baby poop sounds--well, crappy--then you're probably not the parent of an infant. ... With information on gut flora and food sensitivities to runny stools and a kid who just won't go, Palmer helps parents consider whether the cause is celiac disease, a call for probiotics, a change in diet, or just plain normal. VERDICT Thick with scientific citations and references, this book definitely has a place on library shelves. An affordable purchase worth consideration.
Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review
... recommended reading (and a recommended bookshelf reference) for any parent (especially new parents) who may find that baby poop actually is a better indicator of a baby's underlying health than any other diagnostic method.
... Add charts ("Are You Seeing Green?"), discussions of formula choices and dietary options and effects, and genetic inheritance considerations and you have a well-rounded discussion that all parents should be familiar with: one that links baby poop to all kinds of conditions, options, and health impacts both positive and negative.

Philippa Pearson-Glaze, IBCLC for Breastfeeding.Support --- Baby Poop is full of interesting facts with over 30 pages of references to reinforce them. We learn that where a baby is born (hospital or home) can affect the establishment of healthy gut bacteria, along with how they are born (caesarean or vaginal) and what their early food is (breast milk or formula)...
About the Author
Linda Folden Palmer is a widely recognized author and speaker specializing in nutrition of childhood and in infant health and bonding. She is dedicated to raising awareness about how powerfully early parenting and healthcare choices can influence a child's mental and physical outcomes. Having run a successful chiropractic practice for over a decade, focused on nutrition and women's health, Palmer's life became transformed in 1995 by the health challenges of her newborn son. Perplexed by the lack of appropriate advice from pediatric sources, her extensive literature research led to her first book, Baby Matters, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Caring for Your Baby. After an IPPY Award-winning updated 2nd edition, the 3rd updated edition was released as The Baby Bond. Palmer also co-authored What Your Pediatrician Doesn’t Know Can Hurt Your Child with pediatrician Susan Markel, MD. Extensively documented, her healthy parenting books present the scientific evidence behind attachment parenting practices, supporting baby's immune system, and sparing drug usage. She reveals important considerations in infant nutrition and discusses the seldom-recognized frequency of food intolerance symptoms, even in breastfed infants. Palmer stays an active advocate of the natural parenting principles she supports, often addressing the motives and actions of big industries. She has served as one of Mothering’s “Ask The Experts” since 2001. Palmer has instructed in physiology, pathology, and pediatric nutrition, is certified in natural childbirth education, and guest lectures in infant health, breastfeeding, and the biochemistry of parenting. She lives in San Diego with her son and physicist husband. You can find an assortment of infant health articles at her website BabyReference.com and her blogs on Facebook at The Baby Bond and Baby Poop.

As a physician specialist and clinical professor of gastroenterology at a leading medical school, I know an awful lot about poop and gaseousness (To ’Air’ is Human, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Intestinal Gas) but I make no claim to knowing it all. I learned some new and valuable dark pearls of wisdom about poop from Dr. Palmer and her medical literature research.
As with many areas of medicine new information and research findings, all too frequently contradict previous beliefs, and often confuse more than enlighten. Although there will always be differences of opinion and controversies, I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Palmer that respecting and encouraging natural approaches such as breastfeeding, organic foods, and following our gut instincts makes the most sense. Baby Poop should be scooped up by grateful parents and their thoughtful friends!

"Baby Poop," is more than a book and more like a poop encyclopedia. It's definitely not a book that can be read quickly due to the load of information contained and the statistics involved in calculating the many things that may disturb a baby's G.I. tract. Overall, I believe this book will be very helpful to mothers, fathers, and their new bundles of joy.
