Baby Body Signs explains how parents and other caregivers can use their 5 senses to find clues to a baby’s state of health by:
• Looking at a baby’s head, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, skin, torso, genitals, and body wastes
• Listening to a baby’s breathing and stomach sounds
• Feeling a baby skin or heartbeat.
• Smelling a baby’s breath and body wastes
• And even tasting a baby’s skin
Baby Body Signs is filled with historical and other fascinating facts and quotes about babies, as well as important healthy signs, warning signs, and danger signs. This indispensable book will help you decide when to call the pediatrician and when to relax and stop worrying. You’ll want to keep close at hand throughout your baby’s infancy and toddler years.

What Did I Think?
Just from skimming through Baby Body Signs and reading parts of it (this is not really a book that you read from cover to cover) I can tell that it would be very helpful with small children. It answers questions that parents may have regarding everything from their baby's poop to his soft spot. This would be a fantastic baby shower gift to give to a pregnant couple, even if they already have children! I will definitely be keeping this one for my library and pull it out when I have my own children someday.
