The 24/7 Baby Doctor

I recently was asked to read and review the book The 24/7 Baby Doctor: A Harvard Pediatrician Answers All Your Questions from Birth to One Year.

The book is written by Victoria Rogers McEvoy, MD.

After reading through the book, I can conclude that this book is a WONDERFUL resource for all parents! It's set up in question/answer format-much like the easy to access information on the internet. However, the difference is that the information you get in this book is accurate. No more weeding through responses you get on a Google search. Specific questions range from "Must I wash my baby's clothes separately?" to "What should I do if my baby spits up medicine?" Furthermore, the answers to your questions in this book are not long, winded responses. They are quick, practical, "get right to the point" solutions. It really is like having a pediatrician on call 24/7!

Here is some more info about the book:

THE 24/7 BABY DOCTOR mines …

•The facts (and fictions) about immunizations
•Understanding and navigating illness: is the baby sick? When to call the doctor
•How new parents can work together as a team
•How to make sense of growth and development: what is normal?
•Injuries and accidents: when to call a medic
•Coming to terms with work and career choices
... and a lot more.

If you're looking for a great comprehensive guide for the first year of parenting, this book is a must-have!


  1. Christie you are very convincing! I feel like I need to buy this book right now. And, I'm happy you posted a few times this week. I feel like my morning routine is back to normal. I missed you!

  2. Great reveiew! Wish I knew about this book when my toddler was a newborn. But, this will make a great baby shower gift for my girlfriend who is pregnant.
