I really enjoyed this book. Covers many topics: breast/bottle feeding; first weeks, each month, adoption, first aid, baby with problems, spacing between children, healthy diet. Referred to it often to answer questions or see if my child was on target.

This is the 1st edition of this book. It is still has a lot of good information in it, but some of the information is out of date. Most notably, this edition was published before the CDC began recommending that babies be laid to sleep on their backs to prevent SIDS.
There is now a completely revised 2nd edition of the book available. The ISBN for that edition is: 0761129588

The follow up to "What to Expect When You're Expecting." Like the first one, it is divided by months, and also major topics such as "surviving the first year" and "enjoying the first year". A quick and informative reference for every new, and experienced, parent.
