  • I suggest "What to expect when your expecting"... This is a really good book. It guides through your pregnancy from pre-conception all the way to birth. It comes in a whole series... the one that follows is "What to expect the first year" and What to expect the toddler years... Like I said, it is a very good series... They also have a web site.... . I suggest you check it out and see how you like it.. I hope this helps.

  • I also suggest, "Helping Your Child Sleep Through the Night", Cuthbertson, Schville (I believe, on the 2nd) It addresses sleep issues until the age of 5. It's a wonderful handbook for dealing with nursing, bottle feeding, etc. I highly recommend it.

  • I liked "Your Pregnancy" and "Your Baby's First Year."

  • Honestly, the one between your ears. I read so many of those books when I found out I was pregnant, and seriously, I have yet to find a reason to waste your money on them like I did. Your best bet is to ignore all the "experts" and let your heart and mind lead. Children need common sense and love, if you can handle that, you're in no need of any book!
