I gave a birth to our first son last year. I bought this book when I was pregnant wanting to know what to expect. I didn't really read it during my pregnancy since I was taking parenting classes with my husband. But I opened this book so many times especially in first 6 months of my son's life. I looked up things that you don't necessarily want to call the doctor, families, or friends for. It gave me just enough information and a piece of mind.

I received this book as a baby shower gift and didn't think much about it UNTIL I started reading it. I had ready MANY MANY books while I was pregnant and couldn't imagine what THIS particular book could offer. Boy was I wrong! This is BY FAR THE BEST book for a new mom and her first year as a mother. It has answered EVERY question that has come up for me and is easy to find in the chapters. I also like the fact that the author tells you the facts... talks about Old Wives Tales and gives you her advice as well. I will buy this book for EVERY friend that becomes pregnant from here on out.

I absolutely LOVE this book! As a 1st time mom, I couldn't have lived without it. There's an incredible amount of info in each chapter, it's clearly written--a big plus when you're sleep deprived!-- and the authors are actually pretty funny. This is a great baby shower or new mom gift!

This book is great! My baby is one and I wish I would have gotten this when he was born. All the issues that I freaked out about are in this book. If I would have had this sooner it could have saved me a lot of stress!

This book needs to come with every baby. I refer to this book for everything. I love the layout. It is easy to read with the question and answer layout and very easy to find just what you are looking for with the index. I have given this book at every baby shower and tell every new mom I can about this book. I am very excited that there is a toddler 411 now. I will be buying this book very soon. My son will be 1 year in Sept. I can't say enough about this book, It is a must have.
