This book is great if you are all about parenthood.... I was all about making it though my pregnancy alive, so I feel that some of the info in this book is extraneous and/or unnescessary. It tells you what kind of stuff you need to buy for your new addition, but again, in my opinion, all he/she really needs is milk, love, and diapers. But if you're an expectant parent who really wants to go all out for your first baby, I think this could be a great resource for you. It covers baby's first 24 months.
