From the Back Cover
America's leading pediatricians and health experts agree—BabyFacts is a must for parents! It reveals and dispels many of the dangerous myths that persist about the health of young children.
"There may be more urban myths about parenting than any other category. . . . BabyFacts takes those myths and shatters them and leaves us with the truth in their place. What a wonderful book for every parent and all those doctors, too."
—Nancy L. Snyderman, M.D., NBC News Chief Medical Editor
"BabyFacts serves up bite-sized nuggets of solid advice, perfect for parents who want a quick reality check. BabyFacts deserves a place on every parenting bookshelf."
—Robert Needlman, M.D., coauthor of Dr Spock's Baby and Child Care, Eighth Edition
"Your child is too precious to make parenting decisions on bad information! BabyFacts separates fact from fiction."
—Ari Brown, M.D., author of Baby 411 and Toddler 411
"BabyFacts stands out on the crowded parenting shelf. . . . I enthusiastically recommend BabyFacts to new and veteran parents who want to correct the many 'things you know that just aren't so.'"
—Marianne Neifert, M.D., author of Dr. Mom: A Guide to Baby and Child Care
"Dr. Adesman has done a real favor for parents with his new book. . . . BabyFacts gives great advice and helpful guidance for new and old families alike."

As a mother and grandmother, I totally endorse this book!! I wish that I'd had it when my children were small. Dr. Adesman addresses all the "old wives" tales and current trends in a smart, witty, crisp and humble fashion. (He even admits the myths that he and his pediatrician wife succumbed to while raising their 3 children.) He also points out when you should consult your doctor. My daughter-in-law loves this book as a mother of 2 pre-schoolers. Also, the cover is beautiful!! I will be giving this as a baby shower gift for years to come.
