Helpful Score: 1
One of my two very favorite child care/medical advice books. Very helpful with a good index. The subtitle is "From Birth to Age Five." The medical information is very useful for older children, too.

Sensible information; unusual delivery - I found it a little hard to get used to, but I'm not an easygoing person.

I love this book! It's been super helpful navigating through new parenthood. Her explanations of behavioral and physical development have been very reassuring and worry-reducing. It's helped me to feel much more confident and competent at understanding and taking care of my baby.

I loved this book, Penelope Leach is the practical person you want telling you about babies and young children. It isn't as flashy as the new books out, but it has EVERYTHING.

This book has sound information on every stage of your baby and child's first years, from medical queries to social issues. It provides excellent information on how to provide a stimulating environment for your child to grow and learn, and to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere in your home and within your family.

More practical advice. Lots of pictures and more of a developmental slant than other baby books.

This book is a must for every mom but specially for moms whose mom is not physicaly close to help when the new baby comes. I was fortunate to have my mom for 3 weeks before and after the baby came, however, the emotions are at its highest and that book helps you a lot during those times and many months after that.
