Haven’t read it yet, but I’ve been recommended Happiest Baby on the Block a few times.

I haven’t had my kid yet, but I kind of feel like Happiest Baby on the Block is a really great thing to check out from the library- I’m totally glad I read it, I think it’s something you SHOULD read, but if you take a few notes on first reading, you kind of don’t really need to have it around the house at all times.

I had friends recommend this to me:

I read (and reccomend) Happiest Baby on the Block, The No Cry sleep Solution, and The Diaper-Free Baby (if you’re doing elimination communication).  I have What to Expect the First Year, but I mostly just read the monthly developmental section to make sure Addie’s on track.  Oh, and you can sign up for free emails from http://www.thewonderweeks.com that explain big developmental weeks in your baby’s fist year and a half.

I’m on to discipline books right now, and I just downloaded Positive Discipline and Nurture Shock.  I heard really great reviews on both of them!

I really like the Wonder Weeks emails; Mrs. DG’s suggestion of course!  🙂

I didn’t like the What to Expect When You’re Pregnant book, but it was comprehensive.  Same thing with the baby version.  I look through the monthly chapter, but I only really read the developments section.  I just haven’t found anything else that has quite as much information.

I liked Happiest Baby on the Block and Heading Home with your Newborn (really basic but I needed it!)

I forgot to mention I watched the Happiest Baby on the Block DVD and I highly recommend it.

Also http://www.pediasleep.com/ . The free sample white noise download on this website put my little non-sleeping baby out! It’s nothing short of a miracle. Definitely went ahead and bought the sound track since everytime I had to restart (sample is only 10 minutes) baby started to fuss.  Amazing!!
