About the Authors
"Figuring I wasn't going to experience a spiritual revelation about the sanctity of family dinners at this late stage, I dropped the conversion-narrative books in favor of some that sound like brass-tacks science. "Super Nutrition for Babies: The Right Way to Feed Your Baby for Optimal Health," by Katherine Erlich, M.D., and Kelly Genzlinger, C.N.C., C.M.T.A., with a foreword by David Brownstein, M.D., author of "Overcoming Thyroid Disorders," seemed with all those enigmatic letters to fit the bill." - New York Times
