   Must Have Resource for New Parents
A must have for new parents. Can't say how many times we reached for it in the first year. It's better if you look up what to do when your baby does X, Y, or Z. I was getting ready to be a dad and there were other baby books in my house. The only thing that helped me get ready was a collection of stories. Others added to my feelings of overwhelm. Moneyball guy Home Game An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood seems to be a good choice from the dad's point of view, because of recent memory reflections on the experience of becoming a dad. The Faith of a Child is a raw, funny, hopeful view from a dad.
   Okay, so I've never been a parent before
I found this book to be a good source of information and a good guide when it came to calling the doctor. I didn't think the book would tell me how to be a mother, just what to look for in behavior, and suggestions as to what to do in specific situations. This book and the Toddler years one were good. The information in this book allayed a lot of the fears and feelings of first time parents.
We got this book as a shower gift and didn't know what a useful guide it was. When we were first time parents, we could go to The Book when we had any questions. Our baby is three months old and we have already gone through so much. We got book help on everything from breastfeeding to crying to sleeping through the night. Is the sound coming from his lungs normal? ?
   Great step by step guide to the first year of baby madness!
This book will give you information on all sorts of baby issues and will help you step by step through each month with achievements your baby may be making and how to encourage them to make more money. It's easy to read and written in a way that doesn't patronise you as a mum. Great book!
   A Grandmother's Saving Grace!!!
I had forgotten a lot since my son was a baby. I bought this book for myself and my granddaughter. I wanted to make sure that she was on track. The toddler years book was fantastic. They should publish a book about pre-schoolers.
   great for first time mothers
If you are a first time parent, this is a good thing to have. I didn't have to run all over the internet to answer my questions. Everyone I know is having kids and I buy this book for them. It saves a lot of panic.
   Good reference
I didn't get to read much of this because I kept forgetting to look at the book while I was getting to know my daughter. When I was curious about what age she may start to try and crawl at, I was able to find useful tips and information in the book. It's good if you're going to pay attention to it, but not all the time.
   Handy reference, some good information.
In the first four months after my daughter's birth, I referred to this book many times. As the title states, it gives you a good idea of what to expect in the first year of baby's life, but as former reviewers have stated, only you know your baby best. As my daughter grows and we get to know each other, I find that I refer to the book less and less. I still think this book is a great reference for first time parents, even though I have started to rely on my own instincts and intuition when it comes to being a mother. The chapters on what to do when your baby is sick make this book worth buying.
   Lousy Advice, Frustrating Format
I'm a second time mom after a nine year break and this book didn't help me at all. The QandA format was frustrating because the information provided was tailored to one question, rather than a range of topics within the subject. I was insulted by the suggestion that parents who do not agree with CIO are weak. Some of the parenting advice in this book is not good. I can't recommend it.
   A very handy reference book
Even if you don't agree with everything in the book, you'll still find a lot of information in it. This is a good source of information, as I always think you should look at several books and the internet before making a decision. It tells you what to expect when it comes to physical and verbal development and then goes on to discuss the appropriate topics for the month in a question and answer format. The index is useful. The No-Cry Sleep Solution and A Mind at a Time are recommended by me.
