Baby Lists, What to Do and What to Get to Prepare for Baby

Elaine Farber

Ok, I have to admit it: When I picked up this book I thought I knew every baby item and gadget and, well, most of the important stuff you need for a new baby. I have three children of my own, so I thought that fact alone qualified me as an expert. Now I have to confess that I couldn’t put this book down. As I read “Baby Lists: What to Do and What to Get to Prepare for Baby,” I began to wish that I had bought this book during my first pregnancy as it would have saved a lot of Internet time and money! It’s not your typical “list” book my any means, it is actually a great read. If you like to be prepared for anything, then having a child is something that is worth your time and preparation. This book is the ultimate guide for, as the title reads, what to do and what to get to prepare for baby.

Some of my favorite features of this book include:

A list of recommended products’ Web sites or where to buy them.
A focus on separating what you NEED from what you may “want.”
An excellent index that makes finding specific needs very fast (a real perk for new moms!).
Her list of recommended pregnancy books include my favorite book from Dr. Sears
I think the “questionnaires” in the book are a vital and much appreciated short cut and a great resource for a mom who’s really not sure just what to ask her prospective pediatrician. It also includes the right questions to ask during a nanny/babysitter interview.

If you’re not sure what type of bottle, diaper, high chair, or diaper bay you want to use, just read over these sections where all the types are discussed and you’ll soon feel reassured that you can make an informed decision. If you’ve never heard of an “ExerSaucer” or a “Bjorn,” then you NEED this resource! Don’t forget to read over the music-selections section! Elaine Farber, the genius behind my new favorite book, brings over 25 years of experience in working with new families, families of multiples, day-care centers, nurseries and one-on-one consultations. You can feel her passion and her need to help new families with the most wonderful and rewarding experience — welcoming a new baby. You can purchase this book here
