Baby MedBasicsis a cute little book to stick at the bottom of the diaper bag, “just in case.” It covers typical child accidents and illnesses including burns, falls, poisons and fevers. As the book cover proclaims, it’s “emergency action steps at your finger tips.”
It’s 62 pages and covers all the major issues pretty well with actual things to do when you discover the baby is in a threatening condition, with big graphics and plenty of white space. Finding solutions is pretty easy, thanks to big tabs covering 10 major symptoms or problems, including CPR, allergies, bleeding, burns, and choking.
The book also covers at least a page on all conditions on prevention, which may be a little late for most people who consult the book, but is still good to remind busy parents again and again.
Every household should have a book like this, as well as a well-stocked medicine chest with a proper first aid kit, “just in case.”
