How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor Robert S. Mendelsohn, M.D., 1984

Healing Childhood Ear Infections: Prevention, Home Care, and Alternatvie Treatment Schmidt, Michael, A.; North Atlantic Books, 1996.

Beyond Antibiotics: 50 (or so) Ways to Boost Immunity and Avoid Antibiotics; Schmidt, Michael A.; Smith, Lendon H.; Sehnert, Keith W.; North Atlantic Books, 1993, 1994.

What Every Parent Should Know About Childhood Immunization Murphy, Jamie; Boston: Earth Healing Products, 1993.

Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child: A Practical Reference to Natural and Conventional Treatments for Infants and Children Zand, Janet; Walton, Rachel; and Rountree, Bob; Avery Publishing Group, 1994.

The format of Smart Medicine is by symptom; it gives nutritional support, herbal treatments, and homeopathic treatments, in addition to standard medical recommentdations and comfort measures with a description of each illness. The part that I found the most helpful, though, is that it gives normal dosages and theraputic dosages, by age and weight, for vitamins, minerals, herbs, etc. Information you are unlikely to find in any other source!

Take Charge of Your Child's Health: A Guide to Recognizing Symptoms and Treating Minor Illnesses at Home George Wootan, M. D. and Sarah Verney, Crown Publishing Inc, NY 1992

This book is more a philosophy of why and how a parent can be the one to best monitor a child's health, by knowing your child's own "baseline" and doing routine observations of your child. Then it goes into some of the typical minor illnesses, by body area, i.e. chest, head, extremities, etc., giving a full blown rationale for a low-tech-intervention style of treatment. Also goes into vaccinations, and how to distinguish a serious illness from a minor illness.
