Great Expectations: Best Baby Gear (Great Expectations Series) by Sandy Jones, Marcie Jones
Not all high chairs and car seats are created equal: every year, product-related accidents send nearly 70,000 babies and toddlers to the hospital emergency room. To protect their children, parents need the facts. And that’s the mission of this comprehensive, evidence-based A-to-Z guide by Great Expectations authors Sandy and Marcie Jones. Here is the only book that gives moms and dads actual brand-by-brand comparisons of real merchandise to help them choose the very best, safest, and most comfortable bathtub, breast pump, crib, diaper bag, and all the other baby items in between. Starting from pregnancy and going right up to a child’s second birthday, it provides state-of-the-art information, along with tips on how to shop, pictures of the most popular brands, and “Blue Ribbon Awards” winners in each category. All the choices are unbiased and based on a wide range of sources: the authors’ own hands-on experiences; written reviews by nearly 1,000 parents; and reports from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and other major child safety organizations and agencies—as well as the findings of medical studies and injury prevention centers. Plus, it’s just the right size to tuck into a purse, backpack or diaper bag to take along to the store!
