Meet the Author

Sandee Hathaway holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Boston University. An experienced RN with a specialty in obstetrics and neonatal care, Sandee lives in Waban, Massachussets, with her husband and three children.

Arlene Eisenberg worked on all three editions of What to Expect When You're Expecting and remained active in the What To Expect Foundation until her death in February 2001. She was also co-author, with Heidi Murkoff, of the "What to Expect" magazine columns.

It all started with a baby…and a book. Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she couldn’t find answers to her questions or reassurance for her worries in the books she’d turned to for much-needed advice. Determined to write a guide that would help other expectant parents sleep better at night, Heidi delivered the proposal for What to Expect When You’re Expecting just hours before delivering her daughter, Emma.

Dubbed the “pregnancy bible”, the iconic New York Times bestseller is now in its all-new fourth edition, with over 17 million copies in print, and according to USA Today, is read by 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book. Other titles in the series include Eating Well When You’re Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, What to Expect Before You’re Expecting (a complete preconception plan), and the newest member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year, the must-have guide for parents of toddlers. The What to Expect books have sold more than 34 million copies in the US alone, and are published in over 30 languages.

In 2005, Heidi expanded the What to Expect (WTE) brand online with WhatToExpect.com – the interactive, state-of-the-internet companion to the WTE books, and home to a vibrant, vast, yet close-knit community of 3 million parents. In 2009, WTE went mobile with the WTE Pregnancy Tracker (the most popular pregnancy app in the world), the WTE Fertility Tracker, the WTE Baby Name Finder, and the WTE First Year Tracker.
Heidi’s passionate commitment to moms and babies led to the creation of the What to Expect Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underserved families expect healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and healthy, happy babies. With a beautiful, culturally appropriate low-literac

    Useful for Childcare workers too.

    This is a good resource for child care workers as well as parents. I work in a child care center and since I am not a parent myself yet, this book was a very helpful resource for understanding toddlers.

    Very Dissapointing

    While many topics are covered well, there are gaping holes in the information and an obvious bias against attachment parenting concepts (breastfeeding after 1 year for example). This book is outdated and there are a lot better resources out there. I am partial to the Dr Sears series, which is a good balance to books like this that push the 'cry it out' baby training.

    even better than most

    Thank goodness I found this book as it is even better than most. It's been around for a while but I guess some of the best ones are still around in every topic. I liked this one in particular paired with another, Mommy-CEO, by Jodie Lynn, in large part bcause of whatever was left out of What to Expect Toddler Years was picked up in her book. They are great books and a must have for every home.

    Very Comprehensive---but Lacks an Easy Access Topic Format

    My wife and I feel that the WHAT TO EXPECT TODDLER YEARS belongs in every new parent's library along with the other 2 books in the series. They have truly been our "parenting bibles." There is a great deal of useful information in this comprehensive reference guide about 1's, 2's and 3's, and we especially like the medical advice offered. However, we are sometimes disappointed when we attempt to quickly look up insight and answers to specific behavioral questions that continue to pop up with our 1 and 3 year-old daughters. Since the chapter format is organized by months of age instead of topics, we sometimes become frustrated searching for the guidance we need at the moment. Additionally, when we do find the information, we often want more depth and more tips to try for each misbehavior. However, we do realize that no one book can have it all-even one with over 900 pages! Recently, my wife found a very helpful pocket-guide in her OB's waiting room, called appropriately- THE POCKET PARENT. It is filled with hundreds of sensible quick-read suggestions to many of the behavior concerns that we have with our children. "The Pocket Parent" is exclusively written for parents of 2's, 3's, 4's, and 5's. The many topics are in an A-Z format, sprinkled with a good dose of compassion and humor that we find comforting. This totally up-beat book does not preach and is a great "little" companion for the "What to Expect Toddlers". It addresses such common concerns as Bad Words, Bedtime, Biting, Fears, Gimmes, Lying, Morning "Crazies", Separation Anxiety, Sibling Rivalry, Tantrums, and Whining . I found myself chuckling as a read some of the brief anecdotes (many specifically about dads) that I coincidently just encountered with my own kids. Both of these reference guides continue to ease our anxieties and frustrations while building the confidence necessary to make good choices as parents.

    Dads can help too

    The book is pretty good but sometimes after a day with kids, we'd like to go Off Duty. By this time, the dad's can help. Many don't know how or at least that's what we hear. It is interesting but simply lacks basic advice and humor. But I'd still say it's worth the money. Try combining it with others, like Mommy-CEO by nationally syndicated parenting columnist, Jodie Lynn or columnists, Kathy Peel's book on Family Manager. With the three - you will surely have kids and dad helping for success.

    For Fathers Too

    I spend a lot of time with my children so I wanted to be educated about their needs, desires and emotions. Great book!! Don't neglect the needs and desires of your mate too during these special years. My recommendation is below when you dont have a lot of time or money for romance.

    Best collection of books

    I have gone through my pregnancy, the first year and the toddler years with this book collection, I am hoping that they will come out with a 6-9 year guide before my 5 year old turns 6 in September. I strongly encourage them to write something for the crucial teenage years.
