I was very pleased with this purchase. This book contains lots of helpful information for the preparation of a new baby as well as caring for the baby once you are at home. It is not as extensive as the birth to five year version, but does contain everything you need to know for first time parents preparing for a new baby.
It provides important medical information in a way that is easy to read and understand without being too cumbersome. It also helps new parents understand what is normal, and what is cause for concern. I would recommend this book to any new parents or any parents that want a good reference manual written by the leading Pediatric experts in the country.
This version of it is small and compact so you can even stick in the diaper bag as a quick reference if needed.
