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.

    Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde Book....

    I'll agree with most of the reviews here that this book really gives you the low-down on most essential baby items. For example, it helped me navigate through the rather complicated jungle of baby cribs and furniture to find what worked best for my money and for my daughter -- I went with Pali as recommended and it really is top notch quality stuff for the dollar. I would never have known this without the help of the book. Be forewarned, though -- the book tends to strongly censure certain options in baby care (someone mentioned cloth diapers in a review at another site as one example). The worst of this happens on pages 228-229 where the authors compare baby formula and certain direct mail pieces sent out by formula companies to new moms to -- get this! -- cigarettes and beer! I both breast and bottle feed and found this comparison to be highly insensitive the the majority of moms out there who either bottle feed exclusively or who are like me and do both, as well as offensive (comparing formula to controlled substances, come on, is that REALLY necessary?). This mini-article also calls for an end to direct marketing of formula, which is extremely odd considering that (a) all the mail pieces I get from my chosen formula company usually have $8.00 off coupons, (b) the free bag I got at the hospital had a ton more coupons for formula wipes and diapers and the like -- this IS supposed to be a book about saving money and these things saved me a LOT of money (if I were to guess, to date probably at least fifty bucks if not more than that). If you're a bottle feeding mom in any capacity, and you still want to buy this book, do yourself a favor and rip out those two pages. I also agree with earlier reviewers that coupon sites and ways to earn coupons for baby essentials like diapers, wipes, rash ointment, etc should have been addressed as I know I depend on them.
