Top customer reviews
This book is an invaluable resource and provides a wealth of information about how the digestive system works, the digestive health of babies, nutrition, GI disorders and tools for diagnosing tummy troubles.
Of particular interest to us was the chapter on Reflux and GERD since this is what my daughter has. It is amazing how many parent's I have spoken to who have a pediatrician who misdiagnoses their babies reflux. This book can prevent that since it provides so much information on signs and symptoms of so many GI disorders, diseases and aliments.
The book is very easy to follow and the information is very easy to understand. This book should be given to new mother's when they leave the hospital and should be on every pediatrician's desk. It can ease the worries of parent's both new and experienced, reduce phone calls to the doctor and help guide a parent in the right direction to find the best care for their child.

We highly recommend this book to all parents who have questions about what do to when your baby is just not feeding right or feeling well. Also it provides clear and concise information on overall general health and well being. It is on our nightstand and will remain there for many years to come.
While the book does provide advice from babies to teenagers, we have not had to consult those sections regarding older children and teenage issues. No doubt the time will come, and we will rely on this book again and again.
