My husband and I completely relied on Baby Bargains when I was pregnant with our first child. It reviews almost all baby products from carseats to shopping cart covers. The reviews are based on safety, reliability, cost, as well as parent recommendations. Each section reviews and compares major brands and gives each a rating. What I especially like is that the writers give their top picks at the end of each section in "good," "better," and "best" categories. The book aims to help you save money, but it also discusses areas in which you should not scrimp (usually for safety reasons or because it will cost you more in the long run). Now that our daughter is nine months, we are using the updated version to make decisions about a new carseat and an umbrella stroller. This book has been a lifesaver, and it is a must-have for new parents!

 BUYER BEWARE! I would give this zero stars if I could.  The Nookbook does NOT contain any charts, graphs, or pictures even though Barnes & Noble website indicates "DETAILED CHARTS that compare brands of cribs, strollers, car seats and more!" This is FALSE advertising!  Don't be fooled, the Nookbook only has text.  BN refuses to give me a refund for this and claimed that “Because this file is provided by the publisher, pictures and other graphic content will be decided by that person.”  I will NEVER buy a Nookbook again because the content description provided by Barnes & Noble can not be trusted.

    Who made this husband and wife experts in this field?!? My wife's experience with this book was very poor. These reviews, and much better ones, can be found elsewhere on the web for FREE!

    Don't buy, the publishers think they are rock stars. Their reviews are no different than your friends reviews. I know the industry well, I've met the publishers, I know their game. Its not in their best interest to disparage the large players in the industry. Stick with a professional publishing group, like consumer reports.

    There are no pictures or charts in ebook version.  This really upset me.  This problem, unlike what a previous reviewer stated, is not a B&N problem, it is a problem with the actual book publisher, the Kindle version also does not have pics or charts.  
    I would recommend this book, but i highly suggest you get the paper copy. The ebook copy is really bad and at the time i bought it NO ONE on either site had reviewed the ebook version, so I had no warning- you do- so buyer beware!

    for thrift shoppers

    If you are looking to save a dime by wasting your time rummaging through thrift stores, this advice is for you. For some reason the authors think eveyone pregnant has time to search around just to save a few bucks. There is no real advice here that does that. The Consumer Reports Book is so much better. What a waste of time this book really is. I found it offered me little information that I could not find for FREE on the web

    not really a good value

    Bargains? Where are the bargains? This took me time to read, decide and shop and in the end, I bought all the things I wanted anyway, not what they suggested. While these authors provide their own opinion about what they think, they are way off-base on what moms really need or want. Don't think you will save any amount of money by reading this or taking their advice.

    Worst book to read while pregnant

    If you think you will save money you WON'T and here is why. The reviews in this book are horrible. My 2 year old could probably come up with better comments about his potty chair. These people write about things they have no use for themselves (the authors do not have young children) and many of the products they have featured in past editions of their books have been recalled and clearanced. If you are lazy, get this book. If you care about saving money, don't.

    Worst book of the year

    I'm really upset. I bought this book thinking I would save money and I didn't. So many of these products they rated as great were not. My husband and I are on a tight budget and we have spent even more money that we would have choosing things we thought were better. I think all parents on a budget should be aware of this.
