New from AAP - Baby and Toddler Basics: Expert Answers to Parents’ Top 150 Questions

You probably wouldn't know how much you do not know about baby care until your precious little bundle of joy finally arrives in your arms. 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.

About the Book:

From fever to stomachaches, injuries, safe travel, allergies, vaccines, safe sleeping and everything in between, Baby and Toddler Basics: Expert Answers to Parents’ Top 150 Questions answers Parents’ Top 150 Questions about babies and toddlers based on Dr. Tanya's over 20 years in practice, offering helpful, friendly and straightforward guidance for parents who are looking for the right actions to take at home in response to various common health problems their baby or toddler may run into.

The book is organized by most frequently asked-about topics including breastfeeding, formula feeding, starting solid foods, pooping, skin, injuries and first aid, developmental stages and many more. Its simple, clear Q & A format makes searching for answers just as fast as an internet search, but with immediate expert advice that parents can fully trust. Baby & Toddler Basics is like having a “portable pediatrician” in one’s diaper bag, on the nightstand or on one’s mobile device (for parents who prefer e-book), always ready with reassuring answers, backed by the author's expertise as a leading pediatrician and by the trusted authority of the AAP.

I still remember how much I panicked when my youngest got a swelling face and his body covered with visually appalling hives soon after he had a first bite of pureed shrimp, which I was so excited to offer him as a new solid food option. As neither of my older kids has ever experienced any food allergies, I was totally unprepared for such a situation. It was on a Sunday morning, when our pediatrician could not be reached. Luckily his symptoms got gradually relieved by taking over-the-counter allergy medicine. Dr. Tanya's new book includes a series of Q & A's on food allergies. She provides detailed, systematic answers to questions like "How do I know if my baby is allergic to a specific food?", "Do I need to wait to introduce foods with an allergy risk (known as the 'Big Eight') to my baby? Or, can early introduction of these foods decrease the chance of developing a food allergy?", "Are there any particular foods to avoid?", etc.
