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

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 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.

This is a great book to give as a gift to new parents. It covers most of the questions and concerns a mom or dad might have.

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.

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!
