    Baby dictionary

    You will use this as a reference for when things happen. I thought i could read it now before the baby came - but it is more like a dictionary for all things baby. I am sure it will be very useful once my baby arrives.

    GREAT BOOK!

    As a pediatrician and mom of two, I can highly recommend this book. In fact, I wish Dr. Cohen were OUR pediatrician, but we live in different cities. He is so common sensical and practical. I especially like to refer people to the sleep and food sections. I do wish some sections were longer or more detailed or that he would write a second one with new entries. I refer to this book often. You'll love it.

    I. Love. This. Book.

    I give this book to all new parents as a gift - common-sense, no-fuss advice delivered in a fun-to-read format - I refer to this book at least once a week.

    Amazing book as it is very down to earth!

    As a first time dad this book is very re-assuring, you hear a lot of contradictions and urban legends. For a change its nice to hear that its not always that complicated and most of parenting is common sense. Admittely, Dr. Cohen is our peditrician but I can tell you he practice what he preaches. A recommended read for all.....

    Emphasis on 'Basics'

    I am expecting my second baby in December.At times I loved the tone of this book- witty, re-assuring- and at other times, I hated the tone- the author seemed to think that all problems with babies are a by-product of nervous or hovering mommies. Also, some topics were not covered quite as thoroughly as I would like. I wouldn't recommend this for a first time mom. If your child is absolutely average in every way and your children don't have any issues or special needs, or if you are having your third baby, you will appreciate this book a lot.

    A reviewer

    This book has been the most helpful book I've ever read on parenting. As a first time mom, I literally read dozens of books on the subject and was left feeling confused and nervous because of all of the contradictory information I read. Then I found this book and It has given me peace of mind, confidence in parenting and a ton of great advice to refer back to when needed (usually daily for me).
