Can we also make you aware of The Little Orange Book, which provides expert help for parents and carers on how to manage common problems in babies and small children ask your GP for a copy, or view it online here.  In Addition there is a really useful application called NHS Child Health that complements The Little Orange Book. Its available for free to download to smartphones from the app store and google play.
