This review is from: The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby from Birth to Age Two (Paperback)
689 pages that cover nearly everything you'll want to know in the first two years. I find myself looking things up constantly for a tidbit of information. I've found answers to simple questions like when to start my baby drinking from a cup to more complex issues like what solid foods to start with first and how to guage my baby's reactions to first foods.
This book certainly has an Attachment Parenting twist to nearly every topic, so it is best if you follow this type of parenting. (AP = following your baby's cues; sleeping close to your baby; carry your baby a lot; don't use rigid structure or sleep training.)
The book is easy on the eyes - broken up into readable chunks so you don't have to wade through pages of text like many baby books.
There are three "must have" books for the first two years - this book, The No-Cry Sleep Solution and The A to Z Medical Handbook. Get these three and you're covered for nearly everything.
