Mommy Calls: Dr. Tanya Answers Parents' Top 101 Questions About Babies and Toddlers by Tanya Altmann

The must-have resource for parents of children up to age three! Small enough to fit in a diaper bag, but big on straight-forward, medically-sound advice delivered in the warm, funny and straightforward style that has made author Tanya Altmann, MD, FAAP, a favorite on NBC’s Today show.

Beginning in her residency and continuing throughout her years in practice, Dr. Altmann has kept track of the various questions asked by new and experienced parents. Mommy Calls represents what she considers to be the top 101 most common questions parents ask their pediatrician. Sample questions include:

How can I be sure that my newborn is getting enough to eat
What should I do if I think my child swallowed a coin
Should I worry that my child has a fever after getting his shots today
She feels better – is it safe to play with other children now
Does his cut need stiches
And most importantly: How do I know when to call the pediatrician
Organized by category and age group, Mommy Calls is filled with clever tips and fun facts, along with Pediatric Points designed to quickly and clearly communicate important AAP recommendations in easy-to-understand language.

Topics include

Basic Baby Care
Formula Feeding
Solids, Milk, and Other Feeding Issues
Stomachaches and Vomiting
Ingestions, Injuries, and First Aid
Growing Up
