Wonderful - took a lot of worry out of travelling with a baby This book is an excellent reference book to take on any holiday when you are travelling with babies or small children. We took it to Nepal with us when we took our 7 month old baby, Jamie, and it provided to be an invaluable source of information and advice. It is worth reading before you travel as it has useful tips on what to take and what to avoid. It is clearly laid out and well written so that any concerned parent would find it useful. It has excellent checklists that you can use to determine if the symptoms your child has are serious in any way and provides some excellent advice. Every time my husband was worrying about any health issues I would tell him to read THE book! I would highly recommend it to any parent travelling especially if they are travelling to a remote destination such as within Asia, Africa or Latin America. We still use it now when our son gets ill - one of the best health advice books I have come across - one of a kind!
“an absorbing account of a unique place.”
“interspersed with light hearted anecdotes which serve to reassure parents that most problems are usually minor and easily dealt with, despite how terrifying they seem at the time.”
