Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Winner of a prestigious 2005 Parents' Choice Approved Award, the DVD deals with four themes: the basics, feeding, hygiene and sleep and coping. Like a prenatal class on DVD. Great for dads who don't want to read books on baby care. The DVD features real newborns, parents and baby care experts - no actors!

The DVD packaging is also very misleading. It says "over an hour of hints"... but that includes 1 minute of copyright warning and another 30 seconds of "you should always consult your doctor" warning, plus a long end-of-program credit. The actual content is about 55 minutes.
I've seen this DVD and the "ABC of Newborn Baby Care" DVD and even though the latter is not great, it's better because it goes through the important topics step-by-step, and the nurse/midwife demonstrates the techniques clearly. Between the two DVDs, I definitely recommend the latter.
BTW, you can likely find this at your local library. It's also available from Netflix. It's just not worth the price of the DVD, not even 1/10 of the price.
Some people won't get anything out of this. If you're not a first time parent, or you've spent time caring for a newborn before, a lot of the stuff in this video may seem like common sense. Also, if you've made it past the first few weeks with your baby, you've probably already figured all of this stuff out. For a lot of other people who don't know the first thing about newborn care, this video assumes you know nothing and will give you the absolute beginner information that you need to get through those first couple of weeks after bringing the baby home from the hospital. The video answers a lot of questions that you may feel embarrassed to ask, and information that other people may forget to tell you because they take it for granted.
I'm about to have my first baby, so it was super helpful for me, even answering questions I hadn't thought to ask. My wife had two kids from a previous marriage, and she said her first would've been so much easier if she had been able to watch this video then.
Some of the facts/information in this video is dated, and they could stand to update those parts, but it was not enough to knock off a star. Most of it is fine.
