Are they sitting up?

How’s their head control?

What about rolling?

With this list you can rest assured, knowing what developmental milestones to watch for and when it’s time to talk about a concern with your child’s clinician!

Hi there!

I’m Dr. Mona, I’m a Board Certified Pediatrician and a mom.

When new moms come to see me in my medical practice, they tend to have the same questions.

And the same worries.

How do I help my baby sleep at night? Do I have to help them?

I don’t know if I should breast or bottle feed? Or both?

Is my baby gaining enough weight/sleeping enough/hitting the milestones?

When I became a mom to my son Ryaan in 2019, I experienced first-hand all the things us new moms worry about.

And it changed me as a doctor. 

Now I know that the real question all new moms have is:

How do I know if I’m making the right decisions for my baby?

That’s why it’s my mission to share balanced, well-researched parenting advice –

to lessen those big worries and help moms find more joy in motherhood.
