Child Health

The Little Orange Book

The Little Orange Book contains advice and tips on how to manage common illnesses and problems that babies and young children often experience in the first five years of their lives. It also has information on more serious conditions, what to look out for and how to get help. It is easy to navigate and read, and each topic is labelled with various symbols to help you take the correct actions to help your child; such as ‘Call 999’ or ‘Call Health Visitor'.
