This is a book of advice, not gospel. There are three ways to look at each piece of advice as you read this book, all positive:

1. Something new that you regard as a good idea and try to incorporate into your parenting style.
2. Something that you already know and do, but isn't it nice to have it confirmed?!
3. Something that you disagree with, but can spark a great conversation with your spouse or other parents about why you think it's a bad idea, and how it should be done differently. Nothing wrong with good conversation about parenting.

I am grateful for having read this book as my first daughter grew over her first year. It is important that parents are critical of their own skills, and this book helps the process.

This book was invaluable in diagnosing my son with reflux. The sickness lists at the back alone are worth the cost of the book.

The book tells you the milestones the baby may reach each month. Also it has lots of answers to the questions you may have. My baby is three month old now. I found answers to most of my questions in this book.

So far, when an issue comes up and I look in this book for some advice, the majority of suggestions are obvious, and I've already tried and they weren't enough. I was hoping for more from this book.

If you don't want to do any other research, this book will help bring you from zero knowledge to a level adequate to take care of a baby, but if you read mothering blogs in preparation for the first year, your knowledge is probably already beyond the level of this book.

I refer to this from time to time when I have a second to myself! The app is ok too and gives you the weekly developmental expectations for your baby. I'd probably just get the app next time and not the book because you rarely have any time to read unless it's on your phone and you can grab it easily while feeding your baby!

Like the first book in the series, it really helps to know what to expect. It doesn't come across as black and white. Sometimes it's a little repetitive with the what you can expect at this stage, but hey they're covering their bases as baby vary in their development!

All of the "What to Expect" books are wonderful. You can not go wrong with any of them. They are right on target with all the developmental stages. Easy to read and lots of different resources at the back. Good gift idea.

18 years ago I bought and read the complete series and loved it. It is informative and easy to read and consult. Now I have rebought the series for my granddaughter's birth...and loving it all over again.

Great book with great advice. However, it took a month to get to my house after I ordered it, and pages are falling out. It was a used paperback, but I did expect the pages to stay in.
