There is definately some bias in this book towards disposable diapers, formula, and bottles. Primarily due to the fact that these products are advertised in the pages of Baby Talk (the whole "Don't Bite the Hand that Feeds You"). Other then that the book covers several topics a new mom will encounter in the first year of life. None of it is very in depth but a good basic summary.

I bought this over the Baby's First Year Week-by-Week and What To Expect Baby's First Year! It's very insightful and gives multiple options and help for those options such as breastfeed or formula, cloth diapers vs. disposables, etc. Great tips, great checklists!! It as really put me at ease about this impending motherhood thing!!

By far, the best baby care book I've read so far. I'll be referring to it often after Piper is born!
