Best baby book

on Mar 10, 2016 @ 10:18 pm

I want to start reading up on babies now (boy am I clueless) and am wondering if you momma's have any recommendations for good baby books. At this stage it could be several years until I'm well enough to get pregnant and I struggle to read long boring texts. So I'm looking for something snappy and informative broken up by pictures etc.

What was your favourite?

I love the Mayo Clinic book. Guide to baby's first year I think it is called. No pictures but it is packed full of info.

The book "What to Expect When you're expecting" is amazing for info about pregnancy week by week and after baby is born. It's has a lot of question and answers to the most common question you can think of. It's great!

I'll have to check that one out, thanks!

In addition to What to expect when you're expecting I also liked 'The Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know About Your Baby From Birth to Age Two' covers a broad range of things.

Thanks! on Mar 12, 2016 @ 08:14 pm

I'm gonna add that to my wishlist too! Thank you

wonderwhatif It's funny, you think you'e clueless but you'll be surprised just how much you do know and can do once you're a mommy. Most of it is natural intuition and feeling and common sense. Yes, books are good and informative, but I for one firmly believe that noone can tell or teach you how to be a mommy. That is something you learn and not from a book.Most of you will not agree with me, but that;s fine. We are all different. When the time comes, I'm sure you will be a great mommy.

Haha I think the empathy and love will come naturally. My problem is I have no clue about the practical side, like ages to stop or start certain things. I do know to support the baby's head but that's about it.

I was the youngest and I never babysat and only held a baby once, so I definitely want to do a little reading at least :D

Thank you so much, I hope so!

I loved all of the What To Expect books. Especially the ones for birth to one year and the toddler one. The birth to one year one was such a great help.

Absolutely! I think toddler's are easier in a way (despite the attitude problems) because they aren't so fragile.

There are so many things that can hurt babies so I'm gonna be so paranoid haha.
