What is the one baby/child rearing book you would recommend?

For me, it's "Free-range kids" by Lenore Skenazy aka "America's worst mom". It helped me relax, relax, relax (and I have not even finished it yet!)

  • I like the what to expect series. I don't need a lot of help relaxing.

  • I really liked Baby 411 by Dr. Ari Brown and Denise Fields and Raising Baby Green by Dr. Alan Greene. I'm not the typical first time mom, though. I'm pretty laid back about most stuff.
