    Warning! Must be taken with a grain of salt!

    I am a professor of developmental psychology and a mom of 2. Someone gave me this book during my first pregnancy. Even though I knew what to expect developmentally, I looked forward to reading the week-by-week synopsis as my baby grew. Much to my surprise, I found page after page of wrong information. Most of the developmental milestones are written WAY too early in the book, causing parents to worry that their child is falling behind. It's almost as if they were "reaching" for subjects to discuss in some weeks and thus put them in inappropriate places. The book is so badly edited that the weeks don't match up with the given age in months. Even some of the health information is wrong (i.e., saying that 11 month olds don't need a nap, only "rest time"; talking about raisins as an appropriate food for under one year). The only good thing about this book is the recommended activities at the end of each week. I got some fun ideas from those sections. Otherwise the book is junk. I recently picked it up again when my second child was born, and felt like I had to warn all the parents out there who might be taking this as the gospel truth!Please, if you get this book, read it with a very large grain of salt.

    All babies develop on different time lines!

    I bought this book because I enjoyed the Pregnancy Week by Week book. Although it had some helpful information on child care, I was disappointed by this book. Every time I would read something a baby 'should' be able to do at X-weeks old and my baby wasn't quite doing those things, I would feel depressed or guilty that my baby wasn't developing at the same rate. I realize that not all babies develop certain skills at the same time. So after 2 weeks of reading this book, I returned it to the bookstore. I decided to just enjoy what my baby can do each day, and recognize what he's learning to do. I've been much happier watching him grow than reading what he should be doing. For a book for baby care and development, I would recommend the American Academy of Pediatric's Caring for Your Baby and Young Child: Birth to Age 5. I find it much more helpful!

    Outdated & bad advice

    I suggest if a author ever needs to 'write a non-fictional book she needs to 'get her 'facts' up to date this century 'because the misleading of only nursing on on side for fifteen to thirty minutes then switch to other side is misleading 'advice' my lactation consultant gave me this 'advice when my son was born 'even stated my milk didn't come in brought a bottle he didn't want to 'drink it ' but I listened to the lactation consulant for 2 wks then with me suffering from clogged ducts that hurt painful along with engorgment besides when my boy would 'cry after i took him off within fifteen or thirty minutes it was like I was taking his 'food he was eating & he wasn't going to get it back til in 3 hrs -of course he would cry so I saw on another site of nursing on 'demand' so that's what i did -happier boy- and happier mom because no more pain in that department I almost fell for the 'give a bottle trap' because of the fifteen to thirty minute -switch- which plenty mom's do because this 'advice makes them 'assume they cannot produce the right amount of milk so they 'fear of 'starving babies' which leads to 'supplementing with 'formula'and when a baby 'drinks the 'formula down it makes them assume they were 'starvinnng their babies so they give up on nursing altogether so I say 'follow your instincts ' if you 'feel it's wrong to stop your little one from nursing when he's still drinking then don't. A very 'dangerous piece of advice involving the hygiene of non-circ'ed boys stating 'retracting & cleaning under with soap 'every diaper change is 'bad bad advice which leads to many problems of the non-circumcised males because no one but the boy himself should 'retract himself when the foreskin deattaches from his region but til then & if the boy is in diaper -wipe outside of foreskin -even the aap state 'no forced retraction

    An OK Guide...

    This book gives you a week-by-week guide to your new baby, but it is exactly that, a guide. There is no baby I know of that matches the exact weight and length of the average they use in this book. This book was written by a doctor, so that's the type of insight you'll get. A doctor is not necessarily a parenting or nutrition expert, or an expert at all. Basically I feel I didn't need this book. What do they expect you to do, check off all the things each week that your baby has done? Also, this book seems a bit dated (maybe the doctor who wrote it is just really old) because the section that talks about breastfeeding your baby gives outdated advice, such as nursing for only 5-10 minutes on each side, and I forget which week but sometime very early on in the book there is a section where the author talks about how the reader may be thinking about weaning, and proceeds to tell you how, yet the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends breastfeeding for a minimum of 1 year, so is this book really giving the right advice to nursing moms? I did not find this book to be worth the money I paid for it, and if I hadn't bought it in a 2-pack with 'Your Pregnancy Week-By-Week' I would have returned it!

    Highly recommended

    I liked the authors' Your Pregnancy Week by Week during my pregnancy. And this book is a great follow up for explaining what to expect for baby's first year. The information is helpful, insightful, and reassuring at times.

    Read from October 09, 2011 to September 12, 2012 First as a pa

    Read from October 09, 2011 to September 12, 2012

    First as a parent we have to understand that ALL babies develop differently! We as a parent want to push our child's development and he/she may resist your attempts. That is what my little guys has dome many times. In some areas he was ahead and some he was quite behind, but all in all he was developing within acceptable range.

    I have read many other books and websites that list babies milestones and expectations and therefore was pleasantly pleased with this book. It lists a great variety of different games that parents/caregivers can play with the baby. It also addresses varies if not most of the illnesses and what you can do about them at home and when to call dr. sections.

    I really enjoyed this book and would recommend to others as well.

    very helpful guide to each developmental step

    We are grandparents and we are trying to keep up with the development of our first granddaughter. This book is concise and seems to include every step that she is going to take. The book has medical and physical suggestions, appropriate toys and play discussions and first foods lists. We find that we read each month ahead of time and know what to expect.

    Book is great, Barnes and Nobles not so great

    The book is fantastic, filled with great details and information. Well written and organized.

    Barnes and Nobles customer service is not so great, it stinks. Had a problem ordering this book for my Nook. I have been trying to contact B&N's customer service for DAYS and I cannot get them to respond. Shame on them!

    more from this reviewer

    Great book, especially for first time parents.

    As a former NICU/Newborn RN, I found this book to be very informative and well written. I think it should be a must for the expectant mother and father, especially if this is their first baby. I think it would answer a lot of their questions and help them to avoid some of the pitfalls when dealing with a new addition. They say babies don't come with instructions. Well, that could change with the addition of this book to their list of baby needs.

    Great Guide to Baby's Development

    I bought this book when my child was three months old, and I wish I had gotten it sooner. It tells you what to expect from your child on a week-by-week basis, eg., he will start smiling or become interested in mobiles or showing interest in solid foods. It sounds elementary, but especially as a first-time parent, you wonder what your child's limits are or what he is capable of (and, heaven knows, what to DO with him). It also gives tips on things you can do with your child that interest him and play on his developing skills. It also explains why you should do or avoid certain things (eg., don't put cereal in your baby's bottle because the point of feeding them cereal is for them to learn to eat food, not drink it). Again, elementary, but helpful. The book is divided into chapters by week. It is easy to read a chapter or two at a time, so you don't have to finish it right away to get all the info you need. It's probably the most helpful book on general care I have come across. Great purchase, and I imagine it will be a good read for subsequent children too.

    This is my gift to all First Time Moms

    When I was a first time mom, I loved this book for the activities suggested each week. As far as developmental milestones and breastfeeding advice - I don't get those from a book - EVER. Even as a FTM I knew not to look to the book! Ask other moms. Ask your ped. Ask a lactation consultant. But holy crap, don't take it from a flipping book. However, the activities to DO with your newborn bitsy one all the way through his/her first year? Loved that! All the rest of it - use the brain you were born with. :)

    Best of my Baby Books

    As a first time mother, this book was by far the most informative and easy to use. I had several baby books, and this one was the all time favorite. It covered all subjects, including medical information, not just mental and physical development. I wish the authors would come out with one for 2 year and older children.
