I am so glad you're doing well!
We use two books in particular for children's issues:
1. Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines by Stephen Cummings and Dana Ullman
2. The Family Guide to Homeopathy by dr. Andrew Locke
We like #1 better, but #2 has more complete information sometimes. Plus, dosage for pre-made teething and allergy remedies is on the box. My only concern is that if you dose an infant, do so after much research for the right remedy. Homeopathy is so cool that if you have the wrong remedy, nothing will happen. If you have the right one, it gets better (athough in rare cases is gets a little worse and then gets better). But getting them to get the full dose can be challenging. And be sure you get the instant-dissolving kind for babies.
The best advice is to use it for yourself for a while to get a feel for it.
Here are our favorite and most-used remedies:
for poison ivy/oak rash - rhus tox 6x
for any tissue trauma, including bruises and overexertion from lifting - arnica
stopping flu symptoms in their tracks - oscillococcinum [really, this is a life saver!]
And we used different remedies for our cat's uti symptoms successfully.
And if you're feeling really advanced, there is a big book of remedies and symptoms called the homeopathic materia medica.
