'What to Expect in the First Year' has been such a great resource that I wish I would have read it when I had more time (before the birth of our son). The topics discuss so many of the issues that we as women face with our little ones. In this book, the author talks about 'decoding and comforting crying' (see Harvey Karp's video on YouTube @ <...> for some amazing soothing techniques), sleeping through the night, breastfeeding, formula feeding, expressing milk, diapering tips, hospital checkups, starting solids, 'making the transition into parenthood', nursery setup, safety, naps, teething, incoming teeth, baby's attitudes and milestones, messy eating habits, new mommy and daddy concerns and so much more.

I don't know if it's the surging hormones of us preggers, but I get so fed up reading reviews that expect pregnancy books to magically address EVERY personal situation in EVERY way, shape and form. It's absurd and unrealistic. Personally, I have found this book very helpful. What this book provides the reader is a comprehensive guide to many of the issues that pregnant women face. Whether you are breast or bottle feeding, the book offers plenty of information and includes questions from real-world moms with varying perspectives. You don't have to agree with the author to glean some wisom from this book.
