I liked Dr Sears- The Baby Book as an all purpose guide from an AP perspective.

I also had the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) book Your Child: Birth to Age 5 but found it clunky and hard to read... then I found out there is a (paid) phone app from the AAP called KidsDoc where you can look up symptoms and illnesses and it tells you when to call the doc, when to call 911, when to treat at home, and the best home treatments. Pretty much the most useful info from the book in a fully up to date and easy to use format. I use that one ALL THE TIME!!!!! Lifesaver for a nervous mommy and it is always right there on my phone. There is also a website called with the same info, which is great if you are on a computer.
