1001 Healthy Baby Answers Review & Giveaway CLOSED

CLOSED
Have you ever gone to your pediatrician’s office and left more confused than when you came in? Or maybe you arrived home and thought of 10 questions you should have asked after a diagnosis was given? The book 1001 Healthy Baby Answers by Dr. Gary Morchower contains the most common questions parents have about a variety of different conditions and disorders. There are over 125 different childhood ailments discussed with expert answers detailing everything you need to know about causes, symptoms, treatments, follow up, and more.

Topics include:
  • Asthma
  • Chicken Pox
  • Autism
  • Seizures
  • Diabetes
  • Croup
  • Pneumonia
  • Sleep Disorders
1001 Healthy Baby Answers is for parents to have on hand and in the home for quick reference. This essential guide will alleviate fears and give you the right advice to help your child feel better...without another trip to the doctor’s office.

About the Author
Dr. Gary Morchower is a board-certified pediatrician and President of the Pediatric Society of Greater Dallas. A graduate of Tulane University and Tulane Medical School, he has received numerous honors and awards, including the Robert Moore M.D. Outstanding Teaching Award. He lives in Dallas, Texas.

My Take
The first thing that came into my head when I opened this book was "wow"! There are so many topics discussed, and even though I pride myself on knowing a LOT about medical conditions, even I learned something. For example, did you know that mononucleosis (aka mono) causes spleen enlargement? When I had the disease in high school, all I knew was that I wasn't allowed to play in gym class for 6 weeks (woo hoo), but what I didn't know was that it's because my spleen was enlarged and could therefore rupture more easily. Because of this, someone with mono needs to avoid contact sports until his/her spleen is back to its normal size. Very cool...and something I had no idea about before reading this book.

Besides learning things, I love how each section is written by an expert in the field. For example, the discussion of ear infections was written by a doctor of otolaryngology (aka ear, nose and throat doctor), not just by a pediatrician.

The book is split into two parts: common conditions in newborns and common conditions in children and adolescents. This way, if you have a newborn, you don't need to go searching through the many childhood diseases to find what you're looking for. These parts are then organized alphabetically for even easier searching. There's a table of contents in the front, so it shouldn't take more than 30 seconds to find the particular disease you are looking to read about. This book has everything from cleft lip to sinusitis, jaundice to head lice and everything in between.

The book is available in paperback on Amazon.com for $15.25 ($$$) and is worth every penny - and probably costs less than one doctor co-pay! We give 1001 Healthy Baby Answers a 10/10, so go buy a copy for yourself today!
