Mommy MD Guide

I hate when my boys are sick.  Or fussy.  Or won't eat.  I always wonder if something is wrong, but don't want to go to the doctors office every other day.  With Noah especially, I was a by-the-book mom.  I had no idea what I was doing, so I found books for basically everything: sleep, supplies, etc...

As a toddler, I was less worried, but still occasionally had (have) questions and concerns.  I often think "hmm.. maybe I should email my facebook friend-pediatricians and ask them" but that's not fair to them and I try to save the big stuff for my actual doctor.

That's where the Mommy MD Guides come in.  I was lucky enough to receive a copy of The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years by Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH and Jennifer Bright Reich in order to review and share it with you.  

These books have tips from 62 doctors so you'll see different opinions for each and every question.  My favorite part is the "when to call your doctor" because I NEVER know when I should call!  

This book covers everything from growth, nutrition, and toddler proofing to travel tips and even: tips for going to an amusement park (hey, that's my thing!).

I love that in the Emotional Health and Discipline chapter are tips on nurturing adult relationships and even has tips for a girls night out.  I know I could some more of them - one of the tips specifically says go to a vineyard and go wine tasting.  Who's with me?  Doctors Orders!!

MommyMDGuides and DaddyMDGuides come in a variety of options.  Choose from:

  • The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth
  • The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year
