America's bestselling guide to caring for a baby, with over 10 million copies in print, What to Expect the First Year is the bible for taking care of a newborn though the milestone of his or her first birthday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth it... I bought this book last year just after my son was born. It had all of the answers that I needed, and even clarified some topics where there seemed to be no clear-cut answers (i.e. to sterilize or not to sterilize). I have just had my second child, and I find that I am already referring to the book once again. No need to memorize everything....the book is easy to use, and it's always there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Reference Book This book is a practical reference manual for first-time moms. As a new mom, I found it to be really helpful, interesting and easy to read and factual. The book is arranged by baby's month by month development. It gives many good parenting tips and is not judgemental on the parenting technique you use.
