I have lost count of how many questions that I wished to get immediate answers to, especially when our pediatrician or my mom wasn't readily available. An Internet search is not always helpful, as it may yield too many answers that are confusing or even conflicting at times. Today's new parents are in luck for they can refer to the American Academy of Pediatrics' newly released book, Baby and Toddler Basics: Expert Answers to Parents’ Top 150 Questions, written by AAP's spokesperson, leading practicing pediatrician and top-selling author, Tanya Altmann MD, FAAP.
