Wiggle_worm7's review of: What to Expect the First Year
This book was a complete lifesaver for me. I didn't have a clue what to expect. This book covers parts of the "Expecting" portion, including labor and delivery, and the first precious weeks at home when you are still thinking, "I don't know if I can do this...". It was a lifesaver, and let me know that what I was feeling, what was happening, and how my son was developing was perfectly normal. It answered the questions that I didn't think to ask my doctor when my son was jaundice, when he had a pyloric stenosis, when he ran a fever in the middle of the night, when he started getting teeth, when he was reaching developmental milestones--everything! It was a lifesaver so many times, and it was worth it's weight in gold. Any time any friend of mine tells me she is expecting, I HIGHLY recommend this book for when the baby arrives. It is by far the most resourceful self-help book I have ever read. I read it cover to cover at least three times, and then used it as a resource to look things up with both my first and second sons. Trust when I say, you won't be disappointed with this book, whether you have your first, third, or tenth child!
