The 24/7 Baby Doctor: A Harvard Pediatrician Answers All Your Questions from Birth to One Yearby Victoria Rogers Mcevoy
Synopses & Reviews
The 24/7 Baby Doctor is the essential twenty-first-century reference guide for new parents. Doing away with the often intimidating What to Expect” approach of so many parenting books, Dr. Victoria Rogers McEvoy coaches readers in an encouraging, you-can-do-this voice, telling parents what they can do and when they need to consult their doctor. She asks (and answers) all key questions, on topics such as sleep, food, crying, stooling, spitting up, development, health and safety, and technology. She offers evidence-based solutions that reflect American Academy of Pediatrics recommendations and the latest research—whether on vaccines, autism, or cognitive products that supposedly make babies smarter. And, where possible, Dr. McEvoy gives parents the parameters to make their own choices.
