MommyMD The Toddler Years Book Review and Giveaway

I used to tell my husband "Having a toddler is the hardest job in the world" and he would laugh at me..until one day when I had an emergency meeting and I had to leave Xander and Riley who at the time were 2 and 3.5 years old. 

When I came home, my husband was on the floor, nearly in tears. My kids were not being terrible, they were just being normal toddlers, climbing everywhere, demanding things, whining, crying, begging, he couldn't get them to bed, or to eat anything..he was miserable, and now he finally knew why I said it was the hardest job in the world. 

When your kids get older, they go to school, and moms get a break, and when they are babies, they sleep alot and when they are awake, they roll around on the floor and play..then the in between toddler. 

The Mommy MD Guide to the Toddler Years would have been a great book for my husband to read before the kids were born, and I wish I had known it existed. 
It has chapters on :

  • Finger foods
  • Transitioning from bottle to cup
  • Toddler Proofing
  • Potty Training
  • Travel Tips
  • and more..
So many of these chapters would have been great for me to read with my kids too, I had such a hard time potty training Xander, and we did some traveling and I was always looking for tips on that. 

The Mommy MD Guide has more than 900 tips inside, tips that 62 Doctors who are also mothers used during their children's toddler years. 

The Mommy MD Guides come in 3 volumes. 
  1. Pregnancy Birth
  2. Baby's First Year
  3. The Toddler Years
