Format: Paperback
This book is a very helpful tool to any new parent or a parent who is currently expecting! This book takes the guesswork out of shopping, leaving you more time to plan for all those precious moment to come! It has check lists for item you will need and probably want as well! It also includes tools for every day living, baby basics, diapering information, bathing tips, and tips on soothing secrets for teething! All of which any new mom could be grateful for! An example of how helpful this book is, on page 100, there is a section for a well stocked diaper bag. It suggests:

Must Have:

-Spare diapers
-Diaper Wipes
-Diaper Cream
-Changing Pad or extra blanket
--Change of clothes or spare onesie (just in case)
-A bottle or nursing Supplies
-Burp Cloth (you can also use a spare cloth diaper)
-Hat (for changes in weather or sun protection)

Nice to Have:

-Plastic bag to stash dirty diapers
-Receiving Blanket (fills in where needed)
-Booties, hat, and mittens
-Toys or Books for an emergency distraction
-A pacifier, if you choose

Add after first six months:

-Extra clothes (in case of accidents or spills)
-Snacks and a sippy cup or bottle
-Blanket (for any unplanned circumstances)
-Disposable Place Mats
-Antiseptic Wipes & Adhesive Bandages

Lots of helpful information can be found in this awesome book! I also love how the back of this book includes an index to make it easier to find information you may be needing/looking for. There’s also sections to include notes, which can be helpful when deciding on a crib, stroller, etc! I would defiantly recommend this book to new or expecting parents!

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.

Format: Paperback
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!

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Elizabeth Jennings on August 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
As a recent godmother of two this book (and the fantastic giggle stores) were invaluable for finding fun and appropriate gifts as well as the necessities for two newborns. The book is easy to navigate, provides detailed and comprehensive information on what is important to have and when.
Given how many baby products there are to sift through, often frustrating and time consuming, Ali Wing's "giggle Guide to Gear" provides much needed, well-researched and intelligent guidance.
It should be part of every new parents', and friends of new parents', library.
