"The New Pregnancy and Childbirth and this one are probably pretty similar (they have the same number of pages).  The new one might be revised, though, and its generally best to get the newest edition of something.  But the New one is pretty expensive, so I put this one on the list as an alternative."

"Probably not utterly different from the information in The Baby Book, but this is a short book that just talks about sleeping near or with your baby.  In the back it has pictures of different "co-sleepers" that you can buy, which are like small cribs that go right next to your bed."
