Informative to a point, but I found myself referencing it less and less. I didn't finish it.

Fabulous information for first-time parents. We found it helpful every time we had a question and couldn't get hold of parents, friends and/or doctors.

Very useful book - but I suggest getting it BEFORE the baby is born - I never have time to read it!

Great reference book! My baby is 5 months and I skim through it all the time.

Interesting, and full of good information about what to expect at doctor's visits, developmental milestones, etc. However, I found the authors to be less reassuring and more preachy than in "What to Expect When You're Expecting". I didn't finish it by the time my baby turned one.

This is an earlier print version of this book. I don't know why everone gives out these books as shower gifts but there is some useful info in here. DO NOT refer to this book for sleeping, or feeding advice. ESPECIALLY if you are breast feeding.
