My Uncle is a pediatrician in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He took forty plus years of knowledge and wrote a book on health issues for babies (0-5 yrs). This encyclopedia of information is a fantastic resource for any new parent! Lately he starting tweeting tidbits of advice on Twitter and I had a look to see how I might help improve the tweets and get more followers. Below are some of my ideas for improvement.
