Please note: masks are required at Literati Bookstore events.

Rebekah Diamond, M.D., the pediatrician, working mom, and parent advocate trusted by Parents magazine and NBC for her adept advice, expertly guides you through the noise to share her fresh, inclusive, sensible, no-nonsense take on making the right choices when it comes the first 12 months of your child's life.

Becoming a new parent in the age of online advice can be a minefield of confusion, worries, and fears amplified by myths, misinformation, and too much information .

As an experienced pediatrician, Rebekah Diamond is deeply grounded in a fact-based understanding of child healthcare. As a mother, she also understands that the accepted rules aren't always the solution to the challenges of nurturing a healthy new baby. But neither is the overload of relatable but often dangerously misleading information bombarding parents. So how do you trust yourself to make the best decisions for your child?

With authoritative up-to-date research and real-world advice on the myriad obstacles facing moms, dads, and caregivers, Dr. Diamond unpacks the whys behind the facts to empower your best parental instincts. From safe-sleep guidelines, breast feeding, and binky addiction to sensory developmental activities, baby products, and the final--and 100% evidence-based--word on the vaccination debate, Dr. Diamond helps parents cultivate the clarity and sound decisions you need to lessen the anxiety (for parent and baby) around what should be the joyful, connecting early months of life.

Rebekah Diamond, MD is a pediatrician, mother, and founder of the website She received her undergraduate degree from Yale University, and then her M.D. from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She is currently a pediatric hospitalist in New York City and Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University. For more information, visit
