ISBN: 9781607749011
Publisher's Synopsis:
A comprehensive manual for feeding babies and toddlers during the crucial first years of life, written by a team of medical experts who are also parents.
The choices of when, how, and what to feed your baby can be overwhelming. With The Pediatrician’s Guide to Feeding Babies and Toddlers, you have the expertise of a team of pediatric medical and nutritional experts—who also happen to be parents—in a comprehensive manual that takes the guesswork out of feeding. This first-of-its-kind guide provides practical, easy-to-follow advice to help you navigate the nutrition issues, medical conditions, and parenting concerns that accompany feeding. With recipes, parenting stories, and recommendations based on the latest pediatric guidelines, this book will allow you to approach mealtime with confidence so you can spend more time enjoying your new family.
MrsK's Review:
"We believe that feeding should be fun, stress-free,
and family-oriented quality time."

This resource is divided into five age groups with developmental guidelines, medical tips, and recipes. Each stage of growth provides "realistic" suggestions for feeding your little one from breast feeding... to formula or milk... and into finger foods.

Each section is organized with how your infant/toddler is changing. There are expected abilities listed, as well as what type of feeding schedule would benefit their growth pattern. The conversations are written with a welcoming voice, as if you were gathered around a table with relatives or friends sharing personal experiences. Suggested feedings are followed with the most "asked" concerns, these Q&A points are one of the strengths for this book (so many tips are revealed and so many of the myths or misunderstood guidelines are debunked). Finally there are easy to follow recipes for making your own babyfood, soups, or snacks. The last chapter specifically deals with different medical needs (allergies, treatments, growth patterns, and visiting with specialists).

The only aspect that would have made this reviewer happier, would have been the addition of photos (recipes, allergy-related signs, play-time toys, and of course great book resources).
Excellent resource for parents and their newborns-toddlers.
 "We created this book as a resource to provide easy access to
common feeding questions from the minute an infant
is born through the toddler years."
