    Buy an extra copy to keep in your bag!

    What belongs in a diaper bag? What is the best way to let other children be affectionate towards your new baby? How do you hydrate a vomiting baby? Dr. Tanya's tips answer these questions and many more. As a physician myself, I'll assure you that Mommy Calls is a gift to parents and doctors alike, with quick access to the most common concerns arise with young children. Doctors can rest assured their patients are getting sound advice (as opposed to some places on the internet) and parents don't have to wait for the doctor to call back when they are worried in the middle of the night. The only advice Dr. Tanya left out is to make sure you have an extra copy of Mommy Calls to pack in that diaper bag!
