The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years GIVEAWAY
Imagine having more than 60 other moms you can call on, any time, day or night, when you have a parenting question. Now imagine those moms are all doctors, so you can count on their helpful advice for medical issues, too. That's what this book is like.
The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years is part of a family of books from Momosa Publishing.
Pregnancy and Birth, Your Baby's First Year, and Your Baby's First Year are the other books in the series.
Unlike another similar book series I've read, The Mommy MD Guides don't present a single opinion or suggestion, but many, varied opinions. I think this is very beneficial, because parenting styles are different. Some tips will be helpful to you, and some will not, and that's okay, because there's more than 900 bits of wisdom here, so there's something for everyone.
The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years is a helpful, comprehensive look at typical parenting and health concerns for parents of toddlers. Growth, feeding, safety, discipline, learning, and sleep are covered in depth.
The one thing I felt it lacked was any information on special needs kids. There are pages about haircuts, or taking your child to church, or transitioning from crib to bed, but the only mention of autism in the entire book is two sentences under Constipation. "Special needs" doesn't even have an entry in the index, although speech delays and early intervention are briefly mentioned in passing.
I think this would be a helpful book for a first time parent, or a family that hasn't had a toddler in a few years. I like that there are specific product recommendations shared. Many of them, I'd heard of before, but some were new to me, and I'll be keeping an eye out for those.
The Mommy MD Guides is generously allowing me to give away one of their books (your choice!) to one lucky reader. US residents only, please.
