Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The infant grinning on the cover is probably rejoicing as one of the first beneficiaries of this newly revised edition of Denise and Alan Fields' mega-popular (700,000+ copies in print) Baby Bargains. Parents will be beaming too when they enjoy savings that will greatly reduce the daunting costs of raising a toddler today ($7,000 in the first year alone!). The ninth edition includes brand reviews; lists of web sites offering the best discounts; detailed comparison charts; notes on safety and ease of use; tips on bargain hunting, product evaluation, and scam alerts. Products covered include cribs, strollers, bedding, high chairs, diapers, car seats, and even maternity wear for you. Definitely worth recommending.

    This book made baby shopping a snap!

    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!

    Don't buy, the publishers think they are rock stars. Their reviews are no different than your friends reviews. I know the industry well, I've met the publishers, I know their game. Its not in their best interest to disparage the large players in the industry. Stick with a professional publishing group, like consumer reports.

    There are no pictures or charts in ebook version.  This really upset me.  This problem, unlike what a previous reviewer stated, is not a B&N problem, it is a problem with the actual book publisher, the Kindle version also does not have pics or charts.  
    I would recommend this book, but i highly suggest you get the paper copy. The ebook copy is really bad and at the time i bought it NO ONE on either site had reviewed the ebook version, so I had no warning- you do- so buyer beware!

     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.

    Great Resource!

    We bought this book based on a friend's recommendation and it has been very useful! Great reviews for just about everything you could imagine - discusses overall brands as well as individual items, plus a registry guide. Index makes it easy to quickly find things. Takes into account quality, safety, cost, and even customer service.

    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!

    MUST READ for first time parents!!!

    My husband and I bought this book after a friend of ours recommended it. This book is absolutely worth every penny! I read it after we had nearly completed our baby registry, and it really helped us put everything in perspective: What we need, what's a waste of money, what we THINK we need but is actually dangerous for the baby, and so on. I added, deleted and modified my baby registry based on this book, as well as user reviews on the store websites where I registered. All first time parents need to read this book before they go out and waste time and money on baby items that aren't really necessary.

    A MUST HAVE BOOK if you're expecting!

    A very good friend bought this book for me and it was one of the best gifts I received during my pregnancy. My husband and I lived by this book in preparing for our baby. I have bought this book for two of my friends who are pregnant. I would highly recommend this book!

    MUST HAVE

    This book is a must have for any new or soon to be parents. Use the time during pregnancy to read this book and make important decisions about the necessary baby equipment you will be needing to buy. Great suggestions and hints as far as safety, durability, versatility, overall quality & usefulness, etc. Friends who didn't take the time to read this book and do the research were indeed sorry. They wasted money, and didn't get what they really wanted for their baby.

    Focuses the enormous selection

    This book helped me hone in on various areas that seem to have so many name brands and qualtities. Also, on things that we really don't need despite magazines and baby stores telling you that you do need. I will loan it and/or borrow it to other pregnant friends.

    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!
