5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable for those new to parenting, September 27, 2011
This review is from: Heading Home With Your Newborn: From Birth to Reality, 2nd Edition (Paperback)
I'm sure the usefulness of this book depends on your level of information and experience with newborns. My information was limited: I'm a first-time mom with no prior experience with other newborns and this was the first (and only) book I read on this topic. For me the book was invaluable and provided all the necessary information. I read it when my daughter was a couple of weeks old and wished I had read it before she was born.

This book is like a manual for newborns written by experts (pediatricians who are also moms). I liked the balance the authors struck between making recommendations vs. giving readers the information to make their own decisions (although some other reviewers felt that it was too much of one vs. the other--this is obviously subjective).

If you are a first time parent-to-be with limited 'newborn' experience and information, I wholeheartedly recommend this book. Read it before your baby is born--after the first few weeks, the topics are either no longer relevant or you will have already figured them out, although probably with much more pain than necessary!
