Dr. DiMaggio lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters. Wanting to provide nutritious meals for her family and disheartened at the misinformation found on the Internet, she coauthored The Pediatrician’s Guide to Feeding Babies and Toddlers to provide a trusted source for parents to turn to for feeding advice.
To offer a source of reliable information from the relatable standpoint of both a mother of young children and a pediatrician, she also became a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and is dedicated to educating parents on the latest guidelines from the AAP. She has appeared on local news programs, provided her expertise for a number of parenting magazines, and has lectured on pediatric topics throughout New York City and Connecticut to both groups of parents and fellow pediatricians.
