During my first pregnancy, I carefully selected a pregnancy and parenting book to read and to use as a reference throughout my pregnancy and during the first 12 months of my son's life. I did make it through half the book, but as soon as my son was born, I realized that I didn't have time to take a shower, let alone read an entire book. It would have been much easier to have an online reference like thevisualMD.com's Infant Nutrition Center.
I have to admit that I was so focused on the benefits of breast milk and the type of formula we selected that I lost focus on the importance of my selection of solid foods. It would have been extremely helpful to have a quick and easy-to-use resource like the Key Nutrients guide on page 5 of the Infant Nutrition section on thevisualMD. This guide includes an easy-to-read chart, a summary of all the essential vitamins and minerals, plus short videos which explain the importance of protein, fats, vitamins and minerals, and carbs.
If you are constantly multi-tasking like I have been since my first child was born nearly 6 years ago, then you may want to check out thevisualMD.com . This site's topics are not limited to infant nutrition, but also include a wide variety of health topics for both women and men.
I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Mead Johnson. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
