Hopelessly silly ,

Very informative

Have been a fan of Dr Mike's for a while now. While I am an Australian, the show provides relevant, evidence based information that applies globally.

Informative and friendly

Im a nurse in Australia with a 10 month old and am loving this podcast. Dr Mike gives fantastic advice related to baby/ child health and development. The information is evidence based and explained well and with humour.

News you can use!

This is a fantastic podcast for inquisitive parents and doctors alike, with a broad range of topics and evidence-based advice. I listen to this on my way to work as a GP (family physician) in Australia and often pass on Dr Mike's advice to the parents of my patients. I particularly like News Parents Can Use, even doctors appreciate the evidence being broken down into understandable language! Thanks Dr Mike and keep up the great work you are doing to help educate parents around the world.
