Useful if you're new to it all

When I first got pregnant and starting surfing around for what we need for the baby I was overwhelmed by the choice of all the different options of everything you can go for, all the types of blankets, bottles, sterilizers and so on. I wanted to understand what is a necessity and what's a nice to have. This book gave me a clear idea of what things I may / may not need and why. It clearly explains pros and cons of every option you can go for from types of mattresses to travel cots, safety gates and baby clothing. I agree, it doesn't mention which brands are best but it's a good start to understanding all the baby shopping lingo.
As a confused first timer I found this very useful reference before I started shopping and I feel like I avoided buying lots of little things that are not really necessary.
