A good book/site for common baby illness?

I am a first time mom of a 8mo old... My son has so many minor common illnesses and I don't know the signs of any of them. Does anyone know of a good web site and /or book to use as a reference?

  • When I was a first time mom, I liked Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care because of all the practical information he gave.

  • Try this Symptom Guide or go to your library and you find lots of books that can help you.

  • I like the AAP "Caring for Your Baby and Young Child"- we got a copy from our insurance agent when we had DD 1, and I like to go to it to see the developmental stages and common illnesses, ways to handle them, etc.
