I am a nurse and raised 2 children. My daughter got a complimentary copy of this book when she was pregnant. I have not read the entire book (my granddaughter is 5 months old), but what I have read is excellent. It is full of accurate medical information that is easy to understand. It is written in a tone that is soothing, encouraging and non-judgemental (i.e., while enouraging breast feeding because of it's obvioius benefits, bottle feeding is presented as not only an exceptable alternative, but it describes all types of formula and bottle options and even lists the advantages of bottle feeding, such as, fathers and grandparents can feed the baby to allow the new mother to get some much-needed rest) and covers just about every situation new parents might encounter without seeming too overwhelming. I not only recommend this book, I have already given it to 3 other parents-to-be, with the admonition to read the first few chapters before the baby is born to eliminate some of the surprises their new little bundle of joy can bring.
