Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984480420, Paperback)Dr. Spock is dead. Familiar parenting books are outdated. Neither of them speak to the mom who needs advice when her baby cries in the night. To whom do women turn for the latest information and advice about conception, pregnancy, childbirth, and motherhood? The Mommy MD Guides. The second book in our Mommy MD Guides book series, The Mommy MD Guide to Your Babys First Year, is filled with tips that doctors who are also mothers use for their own families during their babies first years. To create it, we spoke with more than 60 doctors who are also mothers; we call them Mommy MD Guides. We spoke with many Mommy MD Guides who are still in the trenches with their babies. Some of them were even pregnant when we talked. We also spoke with Mommy MD Guides whose babies are grown up with babies of their own. They are Grammy MD Guides! Combined, these physicians have centuries of experience as doctors, and among them they have 146 children. The 900+ reassuring, trusted, and often even humorous tips in this book are presented in the Mommy MD Guides own words, and each tip is clearly attributed to the doctor who lived it. Because doctors so often see the things that can go wrong, they try to do everything as right as they can for their own health and for that of their families. Physicians are a healthier group than the whole. Even though women physicians sometimes will just suffer with things that take time and that affect them alone, pregnancy is different. Most doctors go the extra mile to take care of their own bodies while they are carrying their babies. The Mommy MD Guide to Your Babys First Year offers tips on both the challenges and also the celebrations of parenting. You will discover how Mommy MD Guides made it through pesky parenting challenges such as sleep deprivation, breast feeding difficulty, and tantrums, and you will also learn how they enjoyed wonderful celebrations such as their babies first smile, first steps, and first birthday. This book is a reassuring look at parenting that is filled with practical, actionable tips that work. After all, if a physician juggling a busy practice and a hectic home or a resident working 110 hours a week used a tip, no doubt it worked. And if it worked for her, it will likely work for you too. The book is divided into 12 chapters, one for each month of baby s first year. Each chapter opens with a Your Baby This Month section and is filled with tips about the topics particular to that month. In addition to more than 900 tips in the book, it features the following three types of sidebars. When to Call Your Pediatrician sidebars offer critical information of when to seek medical help. Mommy MD Guide Recommended Product sidebars feature products that Mommy MD Guides found invaluable, including cost and availability information. MomMy Time sidebars suggest ways for moms-to-be to relax, de-stress, and enjoy this amazing, wonderful time in their lives. Welcome to the Mommy MD Guides!
