Este libro está disponible solamente en inglés.

The new must-have resource for parents of children up to age three! Small enough to fit in a diaper bag, but big on straight-forward, medically-sound advice delivered in the warm, funny and straightforward style that has made author Tanya Altmann, MD, FAAP, a favorite on NBC’s Today show.


Beginning in her residency and continuing throughout her years in practice, Dr. Altmann has kept track of the various questions asked by new and experienced parents. Mommy Calls represents what she considers to be the top 101 most common questions parents ask their pediatrician. Sample questions include:

  • How can I be sure that my newborn is getting enough to eat
  • What should I do if I think my child swallowed a coin
  • Should I worry that my child has a fever after getting his shots today
  • She feels better – is it safe to play with other children now
  • Does his cut need stiches
  • And most importantly: How do I know when to call the pediatrician

Organized by category and age group, Mommy Calls is filled with clever tips and fun facts, along with Pediatric Points designed to quickly and clearly communicate important AAP recommendations in easy-to-understand language.

Topics include

  • Basic Baby Care
  • Breastfeeding
  • Formula Feeding
  • Solids, Milk, and Other Feeding Issues
  • Pooping
  • Stomachaches and Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Illnesses
  • Skin

"It goes without saying that the latest book by the American Academy of Pediatrics is packed with solid advice about caring for kids ages 0 - 3... [It's] the next best thing to having your own pediatrician at hand 24/7." — Parenting magazine

"I wish I'd had this book in my hands when my boys were tiny and my anxiety huge. New (and even second- or third-time) parents need exactly this kind of info—nicely distilled into easy-to-find bits, and full of reassurance—as much as they need a really great stroller and a good night's sleep!" — Denise Schipani, "Mommy Confidential" columnist for American Baby magazine 

"Mommy Calls is a handy little book filled with nuggets of wisdom that are practical, clear and to the point!" — Harvey Karp, MD, FAAP, creator of the DVD/book, The Happiest Baby on the Block
