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.

    Lots of great information - takes time to read.

    I haven't had as much time as I would like to really read and follow all their advice but what I have found has been helpful. I will keep it and use it for the final months of my pregnancy to gather remaining items.

    Super helpful

    Good overall tips on what to look for when buying products, things to keep in mind as your baby grows (i.e. you're shopping for a 9 month old who will be crawling all over & pulling on things, not just a newborn who sleeps all day) and super helpful in wading through what's a waste of time and not. Brand by brand reviews haven't been as helpful b/c not all stores available to me carry the ones they describe to be able to comparison shop between them - but overall, would recommend this to anyone who's facing shopping for their first baby. A friend recommended it to me, and I'm glad she did!

    more from this reviewer

    Great comprehensive review of baby products!

    This book was recommended to me by a friend whose wife just had a baby 2 months before. I'm using this book as my baby bible for which products to buy or register for, and which to avoid at all costs. This is my first baby, and I was pretty close to clueless about everything you need for baby. This is great! I've saved more money than the cost of the book quadruple times over. The book also refers you to their website for supplemental reviews for some things. Excellent buy!

    Good for weeding out things you don't need.

    This book was great in helping us prioritize our registry. We didn't always agree with the brand information but it was helpful more often than not.

    Great resource

    I'm glad we had this book to use as a resource/guideline. It helped a lot when we started the registry for our baby. I would definitely recommend this book for expectant parents.
    I just wouldn't solely depend on this book. It's good to do research online and ask other parents for their reviews/opinions.

    Gives good guidelines for making you own decisions

    I've read this book cover to cover and found the info about what products and features are available to be invaluable. As a first-time mom, telling one car seat or crib from another was daunting. BB gave me information to make my own decisions based on what is important to me and my husband...sometimes we went with their top picks, sometimes not, but at least we felt we were making informed decisions.
