Product Description


Tundraco’s Daily Living Guide, 3/3/10
“An essential reference for all mothers and mothers-to-be…First time moms will find the guidance that the book offers will help soothe their new-mom nerves and to help them learn what their baby should be doing—and about when.”

InfoDad.com, 3/25/10
“Outstanding…658 pages of clear, carefully written information—much of it highlighted in easy-to-read boxes…Filled with so much material that, even if your child does not follow the exact order in which the data are presented (and he or she probably won’t), the book is excellent at putting early developmental milestones and difficulties in perspective…A useful, trusted resource…Parents who refer to it often during their baby’s first year will find it packed with solid information, intelligently presented.”

Bookviews.com, April 2010
“Filled with information on every aspect from common medical problems, feeding, bonding with your baby, sleeping habits, vaccination guidelines, and baby gear among many other topics. This is an invaluable guide for new parents and those expecting their first child."

Deseret News, 5/11/10
“A concise and easy-to-understand guidebook for each week of your baby's life. Busy parents will find a wealth of information they can absorb in small snippets according to the age of their child…When compared to other child-care books on the market, Your Baby's First Year, Week by Week has a wealth of information. You won't just learn general facts about how your baby should be moving and growing—the weekly format allows you to learn in great detail how your child should be acting, moving and growing.” 

Tucson Citizen, 5/13/10
“A guide that new mothers and fathers have come to depend on. Each of the fifty-two weeks of the baby’s first year features a wealth of medical facts in addition to invaluable coping and planning advice.”

Fresno Book Review, 5/31/10
“A helpful reference for new parents…Provides helpful forms for recording information and important dates. Selected topics, such as breastfeeding and well-baby checkups, are covered in depth in the appendices…The subjects covered are topical and up to date. The information is presented in an easy-to-understand format with a minimum of medical jargon…The first aid and medical guidelines will be useful beyond a baby’s first year, including suggestions for home care and when to call the doctor…The complex task of caring for a baby is made easier by having a comprehensive reference such as this.”

Fit Pregnancy, 8/5/13
“I like that this book is broken down into easily digestible bits of advice so I can just read about what developments I might expect from my newborn in the week ahead rather than having to absorb a lot of information all at once…I imagine this is the book I’ll turn to when I need practical advice.”

Great reference book. I always give this to new parents as a baby shower gift. The book breaks down an infants development on a weekly and monthly basis. The points are easy to follow as they are laid out in paragraph format as well as bullet points. May common and less common questions are discussed and answered in an easy to understand manner. Great easy to use handbook for parents who are expecting or have a new infant or toddler.

HASH(0xa8112a5c) out of 5 stars medical mis-information Oct. 29 2010
By Mom2RyanMeghan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a pediatrician with pre-teen/teenaged children, I didn't have this book on my own shelf, so I didn't read it until one of my patients quoted it to me because it went against the advice I gave her. It says that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends giving babies under 2 months old 200 IU of Vitamin D each day, and to not use the straight Vitamin D preparations. This is false information. The current recommendation for Vitamin D supplementation (which is not new) is 400 IU daily for babies who are exclusively or primarily breastfed until they are taking Vit D milk after their first birthday. The infant Vit D supplements on the market are safe and nontoxic.

I'm worried about what other information about health issues in this book is also blatantly wrong. Please note: this book is written by an Ob/Gyn, not a pediatrician. Look for another book written by a pediatric specialist if you want more accurate information on child health (there are MANY good ones out there!)

HASH(0xa81c25c4) out of 5 stars If you plan on breastfeeding find another book July 4 2011
By kafkita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
My main problem with this book is that, while it does include information on breastfeeding, overall it is not friendly to doing so (or pumping and bottle feeding) as the sole food source for babies under six months and at points actually disparages mothers who choose this approach. I love nursing, but at times it has been difficult and time consuming. I certainly do not need a book that is not fully in support of this process.

HASH(0xa81c2d80) out of 5 stars Not worth the money Feb. 3 2010
By Julie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The positives: I like the developmentally appropriate games given each week. It's not always easy to know what to do with a young baby and there are a lot of fun ideas included. There is a lot of information packed into the book, and while it's not always in the best place on the time line it is easy enough to find everything in the very comprehensive index.

The negatives: The intact penis care advice is dangerously wrong! So are the recommendations about feeding and weening. My dr did advise to start solids with my 4 month old, but he is sitting up and trying to snatch food from our plates already, these are not milestones that are typical at 4 months. The fact that the weeks and months don't line up just drives me NUTS! Everything is 2 weeks off and I went back to see where they went wrong initally. Evidently a baby is only 3 months old for two weeks! The inability to count on the part of the author, the editor and everyone else who looked at this book before it went to press is just ridiculous!

There are better books out there and better free resources online. I won't be recommending this one.

HASH(0xa8112df8) out of 5 stars Purchased in Jan 2013 April 22 2014
By Elaine Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I notice a lot of older reviews mention inaccurate info in this book. I bought this in Jan 2013 and have to say, I believe the book has been revised. I spoke to my Pediatrician on some of the suggestions in the book and did not find any errors. I personally enjoyed this book because it gave me week to week development of a child. Keep in mind though, every child develops at his/her own pace, and this is only a guideline of what a baby is capable of doing. This is not a customized book so a baby is not going to develope at exactly the same pace as this book. With that said, I went back to the book many times when I noticed a certain development milestone in my daughter. It may not have been the same week, but just knowing what to expect is very helpful. I truly enjoyed this having this as a resource during my baby's first year.

HASH(0xa81143d8) out of 5 stars Not like Pregnancy Week By Week July 19 2010
By owensmama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I seriously considered giving this book 1 star, but I did glean a few helpful items from it in our first 5 months of reading. Among the items that made me want to toss this book out the window:
1) Mentions giving watered down juice to a 4 month old.
2) Mentions letting 5 month old play with a cracker, since "they probably won't eat it". Does anyone have a 5 month old that doesn't put EVERYTHING in their mouth?
3) Repeatedly insists on solids beginning at 4 months, and doesn't adequately describe how developed a baby should be to do so (holding up head, sitting with assistance, not pushing food out with tongue).
4) Appears to assume most babies are weaned by 4 months.
5) Wastes dozens of pages on obscure illnesses that would be best put into special chapters at the end, but instead uses them as page fillers with no relation to that child's weekly development.

We continue to read this book because it does cover baby's vision, mental development, motor skills, provides weekly game ideas, and is an easy weekly read. HOWEVER, this book should not be an automatic buy for those who bought the Your Pregnancy, Week by Week. This book is quite uninformed and out of date with current AAP standards, and sometimes will leave your jaw dropping at some of their recommendations.
