  • I thought this was a great book. I like that it breaks down what to expect every month and it’s very clear and easy to read! Jan 31, 2019

  • Very helpful informative book but there's a lot of pages. Too many for me to read. I don't like reading much. There are good recipes in here too though. Jan 03, 2019

  • Very helpful! Sep 24, 2018

    It's okay, but very long and I didn't agree with all of the advice. Not to mention you can find all the information on their website. Aug 31, 2018

  • I’m on my third version of this must-have guide! Even though I’m on my third child, it is still helpful to go back and make sure something is “normal”. Aug 17, 2018

  • This book was my bible my first pregnancy Aug 09, 2018

  • This book is helpful and gives great advice on many subjects. Aug 05, 2018

  • This book has been so helpful since I had my son. It has a lot of tips and tricks and also important things to look out for. It is my go-to when I can't figure something out. Jul 16, 2018

    A great read while you are in the midst of the crazy first year. Jun 05, 2018

  • I has a lot of info and I wish I had some time to read it but it’s hard with a newborn now. I find it easier to just Google all my baby needs and questions. Apr 22, 2018

  • Has the answers to MANY of my questions. Apr 07, 2018

  • Been reading this month by month has some good tips and tricks Oct 18, 2017

  • So helpful! There's an updated edition that has all the newer research. Great at answering questions quickly. Oct 18, 2017

  • Great follow up to what to expect when expecting. Helps you understand how your baby is developing and what is/isn’t normal. Oct 11, 2017

  • Good info, but presented in an intimidating, textbook format. Not easy to find what you're looking for, too much text to tell you simple things you've read elsewhere. Oct 04, 2017

  • As an expecting mom, I often fret over the small things like clipping tiny fingernails or cleaning ears. This book has really reassured me by informing me about the small things no one thinks of. Aug 28, 2017

    It has useful info, but the organization is awful. There are random boxes of information, and it's hard to reference if you want to go back and find something. Aug 24, 2017
