About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
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.
