    A must book for every mom and dad

    I would highly recommend this book for every mom and dad.Written in a very clear and simple language with lots of relevant pictures, this book explains not only how to rear a child in an ideal manner but also helps to explain every mom different stages of her child's development and teaches her how to tackle minor problems that she might face during this period. I can still imagine every minor changes in the development of my son, every time when I read this book. Even for me with an experience in Paediatrics for several years as a doctor, this book gave me lots of confidence in taking care of my son. My husband also enjoyed thoroughly every single page of this book and learned a lot from it. A must read book for every mom and dad....

    Great information

    This book provides you with great information on what to expect as a new parent. I was able to read what to expect from my daughter month to month. Anything from vaccinations, skin care, sleep patterns, breastfeeding, developments, introduction to food, games, etc. I found this more informative and interesting than other 'what to expect' books.
