Great app!

This is very helpful, especially for parents who are trying to figure out whether they have an emergency on their hands or a health concern that can wait until morning. I love the color-coded guide for what to do for various conditions (ie... call 911 if... call your regular doctor if...).

Excellent and current resource

Every panicked parent need this for tips/tricks to what ifs. Up to date info. I shamelessly hand out this app and suggest it to all my patients and work in another part of the country

Every Parent Needs this App

Every parent or caretaker needs this app! I discovered it after Dr Google failed to give me viable home care advice for my 10 month old. This app broke down the home treatment options by age so I knew what was safe and helpful for her age. So easy to use and, since it came from a Children's hospital, I felt comfortable with the advise given.
