This book is a must have! It helps me to think about how to shop for products that fit our life, rather than what products might be the current "hot product de jour".

All new parents (and perhaps second timers too) should have this book with them when shopping for baby!

Format: Paperback
Obviously when a fancy baby store "writes a book" to guide you through the process of gearing up for baby, you have to take it with a grain of salt. This sentence from page 9 pretty much makes clear that there is no room here for readers who aren't prepared to go on a shopping binge: "Even though the choices may be overwhelming, we can all agree that this plethora of options has led to a vastly improved quality of life."

Um, no, we can't all agree on that. The "plethora of options" has led to a generation of over-stimulated yet bored kids and paranoid parents who believe that without this or that product, they just won't be able to raise the baby (or keep him safe) despite all the evidence to the contrary.

I have no problem with a store offering this kind of sales pitch in the store, but to market and SELL this kind of book for $19.95 (I got it for free) makes me think less of the store. Please do NOT buy this for your pregnant friends, it will not be doing them a favor.

I always receive rave thank you's whenever I gift "Giggle Guide to Baby Gear" to expecting friends. It compiles the overwhelming universe of parenting information in a concise, logical and user-friendly format (my friends love the checklists!) that allows new parents to breathe easy and enjoy the most important experience of their lives. Go Giggle!
