    1. I'd really liked the Mayo Clinic pregnancy guide, so I got this one as well. I was not disappointed. Once again, they're science-based without being overly clinical, unsentimental but still reassuring. There's a refreshing lack of fads and an acknowledgement that parents need to make the best choices for their circumstances without bowing too far. (So they strongly recommend breast-feeding, with its associated health benefits, but do not condemn parents for whom this is not a reasonable option. [...]

    2. This is an excellent guide for all new parents. We actually got this book from our friend, who also thought this book was extremely helpful. The book is written in a format so you don't have to read and memorize everything all at once, and can just read chapters as your child grows. What's most fascinating about this book is that it answers all the common questions we had. Although every baby is unique and don't grow up reading the guidelines, having this book can definitely make new parents fee [...]

    3. This guide was helpful with lots of good information. I felt like a lot of it, though, was fluff. The chapter introductions take a lot of time to establish a topic.I will admit that my review might be overly harsh since I have been a nanny and so a lot of subjects -- like the basics to changing a diaper -- are things I have hands-on experience with. What I did like (and the reason I got this book) was the monthly descriptions of how my baby is developing. When is he probably going to cut teeth? [...]

    4. Whoever formatted the ebook for kindle made some very unhelpful and arbitrary divisions. You can't access the table of contents, for example. Not a big deal in a novel, but in a parent's reference, it's an enormous deal. Can't click links when you manage to find the table of contents, either, nor can you change the font size.This made it useless to me, and I would recommend against anyone else purchasing the kindle version.

    5. Plenty of good advice in manageable chunks. Worth reading (or at least skimming) the full book early on, to get a big picture Then just keep it on the shelf as a reference, to remember what games your child might enjoy that month or to look up any possible medical concerns.

    6. As a first time parent, I consider this is one important must-have book! I took great advantage of all its pieces of advice, for me it was pure golden. It is written in the language parents understand, because it's, as they put it, written by doctors who are parents, too!

    7. Succinct, science-based advice to help parents navigate the first year of life with a baby. Good to have on-hand as a reference to supplement the care you get from your pediatrician. I think the chapters that describe each month were most helpful.

    8. The natural follow up after I loved their pregnancy book. Every obsessive concern I had, this book served as the perfect jumping off point for what to expect, ask, and/or look for.

    9. Valuable information from start to finish. No detail is spared. Out of the many books I read on baby's first year, this one resonated the strongest.

    10. It's close to comprehensive without being overwhelming, and unlike so many parenting books I suffered through, it isn't plagued by a patronizing and/or overly goofy tone.

    11. Good overview of care during baby's first year. Useful resourceTips for Baby's First Year(my paraphrase)Enjoy this time of lifeTrust your instinctsAvoid unrealistic expectationsBe patientTake care of yourselfTake care of your marriage

    12. This book is much better than "What to expect when you're expecting" for first time parents. It is factual, not fear-inducing. I read some of it before our baby was born, but then referenced it during her early days and months with us. It has month-by-month chapters about baby's growth and development and a reference section on illness symptoms and treatments. A valuable resource for new parents.

    13. Amazing book especially for new parentsVery easy to read and understand, just like their Pregnancy book. The visuals are great and it's very comprehensive, up-to-date and relevant. However, the copy isn't as nice as their pregnancy book. It's impossible to highlight text covering 2 pages,the table of contents is only until chapter 3, and I am unable to adjust the font size etc. Content is great. Copy can be better. I hope they used the same ebook maker as the pregnancy book.

    14. I base my rating purely on the format. I bought the book on kindle, and it was horrible to navigate as the pages were not adapted to read on my device. I finally had to open the book on my kindle-phone-app to read- that worked so much better! I thought others should be aware. The content was good as far as I could gather, but you need to be able to read it in order to make use of it, obviously!

    15. It was a good guide if you know nothing about infant care. The medical parts were very descriptive and if anything extreme. Overall I think this book put things in simple simple terms which may or may not be a good thing. To me an experienced caregiver of infants it was like it was talking down to me, but to someone with no knowledge of infant care it maybe just what they need.

    16. This isn't one of those books you sit down and read cover to cover. But it does make for a fascinating reference resource. I found myself not only reading the sections describing my daughter's current developmental expectations but all the chapters after that as well. Because we adopted our daughter I appreciated the chapter on adoption. I also enjoyed the chapter on being a father.

    17. Ok, but not my favorite comprehensive book about babies. There is so much I have forgotten! But, wish is was a little more succinct and user friendlye chapter divisions are weird and I found myself wishing for more information some places and less others.

    18. It was a good overview; it was helpful and gave me a greater appreciation of developments an infant goes through in their first year. This book is very much geared to an audience of birth mothers, which would rather annoy me had I been reading it as the father or spouse.

    19. I loved this book. It is even-toned, encouraging, and practical. I am so disappointed to learn they don't have one for the toddler years. Or the teenage years, for that matter.

    20. Extremely helpful book. I read through it in it's entirety so as to know what to expect this first year. Now, it is serving as a great reference whenever problems arrive or I have questions.

    21. A Complete Guide to a baby. Highly recommended for First Time Parents; all questions answered, and all concerns addressed.

    22. Excellent information, and the tone of this book was nowhere near as grating as several other pregnancy/parenting ones I've read.

    23. Another great parenting reference published by the Mayo Clinic! This was a must-have for my husband and I--and it didn't hurt that our little one loves looking at all the pictures of the babies. :)

    24. Helpful book but I wanted to love and use it the way I used the pregnancy guide and I just didn't. I have used the wonder weeks for development much more.

    25. I've read this in bits and pieces since my son was born, originally picking it up because I enjoyed the Pregnancy one by the Mayo Clinic. It has lots of good information that's backed by science.
