When you say babydaddy it makes me think you aren’t in a relationship with the father.  Is that true?

 

Anyway, I think the one everyone mentions is “What to Expect When You’re Expecting.”

The Baby Whisperer is good I think.

Commenting to follow! I feel like I’ve read every pregnancy/birth book on the planet, but I feel lost when it comes to baby getting here.

Note – I haven’t had the kid yet, so take my recommendations with that in mind.

I really liked “Eat Sleep Poop” as a pretty basic non-judgy book. It’s written by a Pediatrician-Dad and so he is pretty straightforward and honest. It’s the only book that I could see DH actually reading (partly because it’s so short and to the point).  I read it when I was working on our baby shopping list so I could understand what all this STUFF was for.

For a baby-reference book, “Baby 411” is what ALL my buds have recommended as their bible. It’s not really a read cover-to-cover kind of book – rather it’s what you look at when you want to think about a specific subject.

The guy in my office with a 4 month old swears by “The Happiest Baby on the Block” (which is mostly about sleeping/soothing). I haven’t read it yet, but it’s in my bag so I can start it today on the train home.

Lastly, not sure about “relationship” books BUT I did just read a funny memoir of a woman with a 2 year old and her journey to having a second child. It’s called “Waiting for Birdy” and while it wasn’t specific about how to keep up your relationship, it was a window into what it is like to develop a family and how your relationships change and grow. It’s worth consideration.

Happiest Baby on the Block is great for newborn care and soothing infants.
