As an expectant mother, I had exhausted all the info on pregnancy and wanted to learn as much as I could - while I still had some free time - on what to expect during our baby's first year. This book proved to be an invaluable resource on everything from breastfeeding to bathing to baby poop and beyond! I know I will refer to it often after our baby arrives, and I recommend it highly for expectant and new parents alike.

I love my new book. The cover, and back were a bit bent, but I think they will flatten out just fine weighted under other books for a bit. I am very excited about becoming a first time mother, and am excited to read this book. I don't mind a few bends in the cover, it's writing in the book that I can't stand, and there is none here, so I'm a happy buyer. Thank you.

The "for Dummies" books are written in a great format. You can read them cover to cover or start at any given point without feeling lost. I totally disagree with "Sabrina's mom"'s comment. Although our baby hasn't come yet I have 4 younger siblings and my mom used the sleep training methods promoted in this book on all of us and they work very well. It's hard to listen to babies cry themselves to sleep but it really is the only way they will learn to get themselves to sleep and the only way you will ever get some sleep. Discipline is just one of those things that you have to do as a parent. Also, the milestones are great so you know when to expect your baby to start crawling so you can plan how to babyproof your house. This book has wonderful, practical advice that I think every parent should read!

This book is very informative. I only wish I had bought it before the baby was born because the first few chapters of the book deals with exactly that. Some of the chapters cover the babies activities based on how many months old he is. So you don't need to read the entire book at once and can wait until your baby reaches a certain age (i.e. 2 months or 3 months and then you can read those chapters). Has a dedicated chapter for Dad.

Most importantly, the book mentions what you can expect as your baby grows older. For example, it was very useful to know that the baby was going to be increasingly fussy and screaming as he grew older into his 2nd, 3rd months which helped us stay more patient and relaxed.

This book was an easy read, and really addresses lots of questions that new moms to be might have about their and baby. It's broken down month-by-month, and also has other sections with tons of information. Would definately recommend it to others.

Bought this for my son as a joke (he is a computer programmer) when he and his wife were having their first child! However, as it turns out, it has a LOT of really useful information!

I thought every baby book will be the same as others but I like that it has a special chapter for dad and mom. Loved it. I would recommend this book to all first time parents.
