Mommy MD Guides

The best advice I get from my pediatrician usually involves some anecdote about what she did with her kids. (Toothbrushing for example or potty-training.)
Recognizing the value of her advice as a doctor and a mom is part of why I share what goes on in my own home with my readers and clients. I know that being a mother made me a better doctor and is part of what makes me effective as a childhood feeding specialist. Readers and clients tell me that the stories that help them most are my accounts of dealing with my own feeding issues –from M's public melt-down over snack to her acceptance of a new food or her low milk intake. EVERY parent works hard at this. In the spirit of the Mommy expert, I recently contributed to a cool project called Mommy MD Guides. Mommy MDs share their pregnancy and child-rearing tips form their own homes– grounded in their medical knowledge and training. I hope you'll check it out!
