Does anyone have any good recommendations for books, websites, email newsletters, etc. for new moms? Everyone always has suggestions for books to read during pregnancy but now that the baby is here, I haven’t really found anything I like yet. Thanks, ladies!

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!

Thanks, ladies. The Happiest Baby on the Block is the only one I’ve read (and totally agree with you on). Mrs. Spring, I saw your Wonder Weeks suggestion on another post and have already signed up. 🙂 I may go with What to Expect…that’s the kind of book I’m looking for I was just wondering if there were better ones out there. I thought the pregnancy version was fine but not exactly a thrilling read…

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 second Nurtureshock and the HBOTB DVD.

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!!
