This has really great practical information, especially for those new or expectant parents like my husband and I, who haven't spent a lot of time taking care of babies before having their own.

I hear the DVD that accompanies this book is super helpful as well (this is a recommendation from my husband's SIL) and I'm almost considering buying this one to keep at home as a reference. The book lists many different sickness and injury scenarios and succinctly describes how to work through each one. I

There were lots of helpful tips in here. I took what worked for us but by no means followed it precisely. The best thing I took out of the book was the importance of maintaining a schedule that had the baby awake and playing in between feeding and napping. And there were some good practical tips bathing, etc. But for the life of me I couldn't get the baby to nap as often as they said I should.

I like that this book isn't quick to assume the newbie parent knows much. (We don't!) However, there was some information that seemed to clash with advice I'm getting from my nurse and other more current sources. (I disagree with letting a 2wo "cry it out". ) Get the revised edition.

Read this over and over with my son a few years ago. Great advice for new parents. But the best advice I got... PICK ONE BOOK on caring for your newborn(s) and STICK WITH IT. So even if it's not this book, just pick one...

This has a lot of really good helpful info for new parents. I like it because it is more of a quick reference rather than a book on child rearing where they spend the entire time trying to convince you that their method is the best. Very helpful.

I love MOC but don't love the book. Don't waste your time with this, just do the online seminars! (though, they are revising the books, so hopefully that helps)

Enjoyed this read. Lots of great advice on how to handle different situations. I have already started to put some information into the works.

This book is extremely practical and easy to read. Two friends passed on their copy to me at my baby shower and I will definitely keep it close once baby arrives.

A great recommendation from my sister-in-law. This will become a staple reference book for our next season.

A must have for every new parent. This system gives you an easy to use plan on how to help your newborn and infant adjust to this world in terms of sleeping, feeding and ailments.
Feb 21, 2012 Colleen rated it it was amazing
This was great. Cut right to the chase on everything, didn't take forever to read, and I felt like I got a TON out of it. I can't wait to try the sleeping/feeding methods.
