My Review:

Baby Medbasics is a fantastic resources for parents and caregivers of children ages birth to one year. It is wonderfully organized into ten sections:

1. Allergies
2. Bites and Stings
3. Bleeding
4. Burns
5. Choking
6. CPR
7. Falls
8. Fever
9. Poison
10. Rash

Each section is only a few pages long but loaded with all the information you need to deal with an emergancy situation. It is small in size (only 6.2inches x 5.1 inches x 0.7 inches and weighs only 5.6 ounces) it fits perfectly into a diaper bag or purse for the perfect go-to  emergency guide. 

It is the perfect reference guide for parents but is also ideal for babysitters, grandparents or child care providers to have handy. It would be a fantastic gift idea for baby showers or new baby gifts. And much of the advice is easily adaptable to older children as well (aside from CPR, which has different requirements for older children - check with your local St. Johns/Red Cross for details)

And don't worry all you parents of toddlers, MedBasics for Toddlers is set to release in stores August 30!

I highly recommend Baby Medbasics and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase Baby Medbasics online through Amazon and through your favorite local bookseller
