I have one little boy who is 16 months and I have found this book to be a wonderful resource for the many toddler related questions that come up on a daily basis. The author writes in a clear and concise manner and really hones in on the questions I care about. Most of the baby books out there take a lot of space to say very little so this book was wonderfully refreshing and the most useful of the bunch. It is by far the best baby/toddler book I have read - and I have read a lot of them.

What belongs in a diaper bag? What is the best way to let other children be affectionate towards your new baby? How do you hydrate a vomiting baby? Dr. Tanya's tips answer these questions and many more. Mommy Calls is a gift to parents and doctors alike, with quick access to the most common concerns arise with young children. The only advice Dr. Tanya left out is to make sure you have an extra copy of Mommy Calls to pack in that diaper bag!

I work in the medical field, and with my current employment I am required to take "Mommy Calls." I found this book helpful for not only parents but me as well. It addresses issues that are not explained during medical training (ie. "normal" stooling habits of babies, and tips/tricks on breast-feeding) in ways that are easy to explain to parents. I would highly recommend this to anyone on the provider end of "Mommy Calls," especially at 4am when it is really hard to think clearly and you need to triage a patient over the phone.

Mommy Calls: Dr. Tanya Answers Parents' Top 101 Questions About Babies and Toddlers Recommended by many pediatricians, I'm sure. Give this as a gift to your patients' parents, sleep more at night (less calls)! It's an excellent resource for new parents, and anyone who helps with infants and toddlers (like grandparents, baby sitters, etc.) Great baby shower gift too, I'm sure. If you are a new, or not so new parent, I highly suggest you get this book.

This book actually answered my questions with practical information and helpful "real world" tips.

My criticism of many of the parenting books I read before this one is that the info I wanted got lost in the minutia and I still wasn't sure what I was supposed to do. Here, everything is right there. And best of all, the answers helped keep me sane on those sleepless nights...

As a first time mother I have made a point to find the best resources when it comes to carring for my daughter. A friend told me about Dr. Tanya's book THE WONDER YEARS which has been so informative to me. Then I happened to see her on The Today Show so I couldn't help but get her most recent book MOMMY CALLS. I consider these books my all in one resource for child rearing!

When I am unsure of certain health issues, and don't want to let my daughters know how much I have forgotten, I quickly use the index to locate an answer and put my mind at ease. This is a great reference book and I plan to purchase several for all my grandmother friends. Thank you for giving me piece of mind. Proud Grandma
