How can you find answers to your parenting questions? Sure, there’s a wealth of information on the Internet and at the library, but who has time to sort through it all? Talk about overwhelming! Relax—we have the cure for the common search. The information you need is at your fingertips in the practical and easy-to-use Busy Mom’s Guide series.

My thoughts:

Being a mom of 3 now (a 5 year old, a 2 year old and a newborn) I thought that this was a very informative book for both new and experienced moms. I love the format of the chapters which go in order of baby's age...starting with 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-24 months, 2 years old and 3-4 years old. Each chapter was then divided up into questions that most parents have about their children at that age. These include topics from feeding your newborn, to growth patterns at the different ages, to helping develop your child's language and social skills to what to expect at your child's doctors appointments. I felt that Dr. Reisser's answers were well thought out and appropriate and practical. I would recommend this to any new mom who is unsure of what life with a child will bring ( (This would make a great addition to a baby shower gift!), as well as to the experienced mom who just needs a refresher course or a quick reference to questions she may have.
