The Mother of All Baby Books is a comprehensive and reassuring guide to baby care. It contains chapters on such all-important topics as preparing for the birth of your baby, shopping for baby (i.e. what you need and what is likely to end up being a complete waste of money), what newborn babies really look like, infant behaviour (sleeping, crying vs. colic), infant development, newborn health, breastfeeding and introducing solid foods, coping with the stress of being a new parent, how having a baby changes your relationship with your partner, how to tell when your baby is sick enough to need to require medical attention, and much more. Like the other two books in the "Mother of All series" (The Mother of All Pregnancy Books and The Mother of All Toddler Books), The Mother of All Baby Books includes a detailed glossary, a directory of Canadian health and parenting associations/organizations, leads on the best Canadian health and parenting web sites, Canadian immunization information, baby growth charts, and much more. This -- along with a copy of the children's book Goodnight Moon -- is my baby gift of choice for new parents.
