it was ok
bookshelves: zeke, non-fiction

Written in a pretty humorous way that makes it more approachable. Lots of basic information-- especially medical-- that may come in handy as my son gets older. I was a little dissatisfied with it, however, because it had almost nothing on weaning or sleep issues, which I'm particularly interested in. Seems like they assume that those things are water under the bridge once you're child reaches one. They are also proponents of a very regimented and organized life which might not work for every parent (and certainly not for me)-- they suggest things like washing your hands after you touch your child to keep germs from spreading among family members and "kissing at your own risk". Still, it is full of clear, concise medical information, with very complete lists of symptoms and treatments, that I think will keep even the most nervous parent from panicking needlessly.
