    Great Resource!

    This book was a life saver in our first few months of parenthood. The layout isn't the easiest to use, but the detailed index does help. The section on sleep was the most comprehensive I had read, and most practical. We also have "What to Expect in the First Year" - the two paired together really helped us get through the first few months.

    This is a lifeline for new moms!

    This book is one of the greatest gifts you could give to a new, first-time mom. Just like with Baby Bargains, I don't think there are any questions that Ms Fields and Dr. Brown do not discuss. The information is relevant, clear, and it's presented in a user friendly format. As a nervous, first-time mom with LOTS of questions, I was relieved to find this book. It is my go-to resource for just about everything.

    Best Baby Book Available

    If you can only get one baby book get this one. It informs you about everything. Lets you know what to expect and what rights you have as a new parent. Provides information about things that are not available in any other baby books. It addresses some of the hard to ask questions that many new moms may have during and after pregnancy. This book is great at preparing new moms on what is still to come and how to handle those situations.

    Great Resource!

    I am a mom and a pediatric nurse. Just because I'm a pediatric nurse doesn't mean I know everything about kids :-) I found this book to be extremely helpful for my son's first year!

    Best baby Shower Gift

    I got this from a friend for my baby shower and it was the best gift I got. It has great information for first time parents. My daughter is 5 months old and I still refer to it all the time.

    Great for New Moms!

    I loved this book - my son is now almost a year old so I am purchasing Toddler 411. The nice thing about this book is that the answers are all very clear, concise, and straight to the point. The chapters are organized well and all information is very easy to understand. I liked and used it way more than What to Expect the First Year.

    Great for 1st time moms

    I bought this book when my son was 2 weeks old and it quickly became my favorite. I owned a couple other popular books, but Baby 411 was the best. It is organized by topics, not by month of life, which is so helpful when trying to find answer to a question or concern. It is a great reference and got me through the uncertainty that being a first time mom brings. I would recommend this book to any new mother and plan on giving it as a baby shower gift from now on.

    Awesome Book

    I can only say buy it! I bought it a few years back with my 1st child & loved it. It was like a small child encyclopedia. Anytime something came up to question I looked in the index and there it was. Chapters on vaccines and all there is to know also chapters on crying, feeding, foods, illnesses. Not just everyday sickness but diseases and syptoms.Answers to the'what if's'. I recommend it to anyone to keep in the house. I buy it as a wishing well gift for all showers.I even bought the toddler 411 book and love that.My 3yr old was just diagnosed with possible Celiac Disease.I opened the book and bam, it had some info about it. Enough to make understand what I need to research more.Go to the store and breeze through it.You will love it because you dont need to read it like a book from cover to cover but keep it incase a situation comes up that you question in your head.Skip around read anything you want whenever you want.I bet there is an answewr in this book.
