Ask Dr. Mom

Have a pressing question about your child’s health, development, or behavior? Submit your question to mommamd4two(at)aol(dot)com. I will feature your question and my answer here on my blog. You can always submit anonymously if you like, just let me know.

Also, if you’re submitting a question and have a blog or website, be sure to include it in your e-mail so I can link back to you in  my post.

The information I provide you with is always from the most up to date and trusted resources. I make sure that all my posts containing health and parenting information are based on research driven evidence as well as personal experience. It’s always from both my pediatrician and mom perspective.

I look forward to hearing from you!
