At first glance, I was entirely sure I would get a whole lot of information from this book. It appeared to be another "help the new mommy" baby book that would probably contain all the info that all the other books I've looked at had. However....I was completely wrong! Yes, the book does contain some repeat information that I've heard many times, but repetition for a first time mom-to-be like myself is never a bad thing!
The full title being Baby: An Owner's Manual, A Beloved Pediatrician Answers Your First 365 Phone Calls, written by Dr. Bud Zukow and Nancy Sayles Kaneshiro, this awesome book has a huge range of questions that all new moms probably want answered. From circumcision care to cradle cap, cloth diaper use to having the baby sleep in your bed, this guide really does cover it all. The answers the doctor gives to the questions are in plain English, not "doctor-speak," which is a definite plus over all those other baby books out there.
Though I may not have learned a whole lot of brand new information from Baby: An Owner's Manual, I did get a whole lot of clarification on issues I had slight confusion on, as well as a valuable doctor's opinion on my husband's and I's biggest baby argument...cloth diapers! I definitely recommend this for all new moms and mamas-to-be. It's a great baby manual and definitely a huge step above a lot of the rest.
