This book came in quite handy for my husband and myself. We are expecting our first child and the amount of products available is overwhelming. This book offers advice and information on many products you can buy for baby from strollers to camcorders. There is also a handy reference section in the back. We took this book along when registering for our little one! It is truely great!
My wife and I read many child care, and 'what to expect' books during her pregnancy with our first child. Of all the books we read, this was the most helpful. There is very little 'warm fuzzy' feel good information here. BUT...if you're looking for practical, useful information and advice, this is the one for you!
