This review is from: Heading Home with Your Newborn: From Birth to Reality (Paperback)
Most infant care books fall into two groups: those written by doctors and those written by moms. The books by doctors are usually dry and boring but are packed with information - lots of which you'll never need. The books written by moms are easier to read but are usually one sided - if you don't do things their way, you're a bad mother.
This book is written by two doctors who are also moms. They know what is best for most babies but they also know that new parents live in the real world - a world that doesn't always work out just like the text book says it should and that not all babies fit into a mold. In fun, short chapters they quickly tell you what you need to know to care for your newborn (0 to 4 months).
The book is an easy read and a great reference during the first, chaotic, sleep-deprived months of a baby's life.

Another book, Simply Baby: An invaluable quick reference to infants is also written by a mother and pediatrician. Goes beyond the newborn stage and has lots of information.
