First off, I will say that this book contains some very helpful information and I am glad I read it. Second, I must point out that the editing is very poor. There were so many grammatical errors (especially in regard to missing articles) that I often had to re-read sentences three or four times before I understood what Feder was talking about. The A to Z guide was especially confusing at times when she would talk about the homeopathic remedies for ailments. Often she would start to give symptoms of the ailment, proceed to talk about what other ailments the specific homeopathic remedy is also good for, and then go back to talking about symptoms to look out for with the original ailment. I had trouble figuring out at first whether or not she was talking about symptoms from the ailment or symptoms that may result from taking the specific homeopathic medicine that was listed. I'm still not entirely sure what she meant. Overall, the grammar is not bad to the point that I will never read it again, but it appears unprofessional and can certainly cause confusion.
Third, the book is not exactly what I expected. I was expecting it to be entirely holistic and health-centered, but Feder left out important subjects I wished to learn more about and also seemed to agree with a lot of things that are pushed by companies like WHO, AHA, and the FDA. The topics below are what I strongly disagreed with:
* Saturated fats: The author states that all saturated fats are bad, including coconut oil! I personally have had a radical transformation in my health as a result of consuming coconut oil daily.
* Canola/soy: Feder considers these to be healthy, but studies have shown that they lead to inflammation, cancer, and various other health issues.
* Plastic: While the author does speak on the dangers of all plastic, in several chapters she mentions that she likes to store milk or pureed meals in freezer bags or ice cube trays. PLASTIC! There are several different kinds of glass containers that store well in a freezer. Plastic and food should never mix!
* Co-sleeping Past Infancy: I have no legitimate argument to discourage co-sleeping; in fact, I plan on co-sleeping to some degree with my baby. However, she encourages co-sleeping well into their childhood. I think she mentioned that her children were at least six years old and still sleeping in the same bed as their parents every single night. That just didn't sit well with me.

Now that I have shared my criticisms of the book, I want to go back to my first point. There were several things that I found to be extremely helpful. The newborn chapter was by far the most informative part of the book for me as I was expecting my first child when I read this. I knew how to better prepare and care for my infant. The vaccination section was also very helpful with regard to the risks of each shot and has further assured me of my decision on whether or not to vaccinate my child. I also found the Breastfeeding and Natural Medicine Chest sections to be great reads. For these reasons, I plan on keeping this book as I raise my children as I know it will help me raise them naturally and healthily.

I LOVE this book. Dr. Feder covers everything you need to know about caring for babies and children holistically. She is also an MD as well as a certified homeopath which pleases me to know that she can simply explain two sides of the story, and two treatment options without bias. I have chosen not to vaccinate my children, and I feel even more comfortable with my decision after reading her book. She explains the pros and cons of vaccinations clearly, and parents who choose to vaccinate should feel at ease as well. I have used homeopathic remedies for all treatments for my son (2 1/2) and they work faster, and are safer to use than anything our non-holistic pediatrican can give. I highly recommend this for any parent. Her website is also very useful. [...]

Natural Baby is just the reference book I was looking for. I have a 1.5-year-old son and would have benefited from this reading from when he was first born. Luckily I have another on the way and am much more educated on the subject of babies! My Mom is very much into conventional medicine (just give him Tylenol and he will be fine) which is not where I am at this point in time. So this book and its teachings are just the thing I need for support of a holistic approach to raising my children. Her book is very detailed. It has everything you need to know about vaccinations, childhood ailments, breastfeeding, co-sleeping, homeopathy, and much more. I thought I was up on most natural and non-intrusive ways to raise my children.

Then I found the section on what clothes are made of and what is in the plastic that makes up the toys he plays with as well as the pacifier that goes in his mouth and on and on and on. It is nice to know there is a Doctor out there that is attuned to how the body, mind and spirit all work together. I like the fact she has two children of her own and the remedies in this book have been tried and proven. My son bumped his mouth a few months back and with his new teeth got a fat lip. I used the remedy Arnica Montana that I had on hand (luckily, thanks to this book) and the swelling went down almost immediately.

Thank you Dr. Feder for such a comprehensive book that I will get for people for Christmas presents... The info is much appreciated :)

Just flipping through this book in general, I was amazed at how much information was packed into it and I like how the information is organized in it. All I have to do is look up how old my baby is in the book and it gives me lots of info of what foods to start introducing and how; what growth or learning developments my baby should accomplish; and a whole lot more useful information that isn't always ready at hand in other books or online in raising a baby naturally. I especially like the medicinal references in the back of the book so that I can make home remedies instead of using preservative-filled products from the store.

I am a first time parent with many things to learn. Have my newborn have with his right eye swelled shut with yellow muscus formed around it. Before heading to the doctor, I decided to see if a remedy was in the book that I could try before hand.

To my happy surprise, yes, there was!

I was able to cure his eye quickly and without a doctor visit and medicines.

The book has already paid for itself!

Great info! Would like to see it in a quick at- a- glance format. It's so hard for a mom with baby to find time to read...Alternative baby care is so important...this book will do for now!

as expected
I have bought this book for every baby shower I have attended over the last few years. I used it often when my children were young. I still use it as a reference guide. Dr. Feder talks me off the cliff when I start to panic because my kids are sick. I like having options outside of a purely Western perspective.
