As a new parent I really loved this book and has really helped me with my newborn. Feel like I learned a lot from this book as well as getting a little more sense and calm about having a newborn baby !
Unbacked, out-dated information
It's just one woman talking about her personal experience with pregnancy sprinkled with the same general recommendations on pregnancy you can get basically anywhere. I've been doing a lot of research since getting pregnant, and the science available today simply doesn't back most of the information this woman provides. I suggest Expecting Better for more science-based information.
Other than that, it's just one woman's personal opinions and experiences. It's nothing significant or mind-blowing. And when she starts the book off by telling the story of how she became a real-life princess (for real), well - what better way to make your book totally unrelatable?
If you know even one person that has had a baby, no matter when they had it, don't bother buying this book. It won't tell you anything that any person that has ever had a baby couldn't tell you.
Good for dads as well!
I'll never carry a child but as a man, i found this book both informative and fun to read!
