First off, this book was written for Americans and Canadians. As an American living in the UK I bought it for the research aspect. It has helped educate me about what products will be needed for baby and what specifics to look for in products, but I can't vouch for the savings aspect yet as we can't use the same stores and websites recommended.
I like to gather lots of information, so I still appreciate the advice in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money! 30 April 2007
By Peachycoors - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I highly recommend this book. I have been researching EVERY baby product to be sure that I am getting what I want at the best price. No resource has provided me better information than this book. The reviews on the rocker/gliders are very detailed. Rockers can range from $150 to $700.....this book helped us see why the high price rockers are so high priced. We found the rocker that we wanted at a baby store (for $700), but bought it online (from a website recommended in the book) and saved (no joke) $200!!!!! (same brand, quality, no shipping or tax!)

Also, they have great ratings on strollers and car seats. The authors are very factual and don't mind saying what products are overpriced.

I highly recommend this book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Really Worthless 11 May 2008
By amh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
At best the authors offer suggestions that anyone could figure out. At worst they advise you to buy things you don't really need and steer you towards their favorite retailers with little regard to price. I don't think they understand what the word "bargain" means. A choice example is recommending Japanese Weekend, one the more expensive maternity clothes retailers. This is not good advice for people looking to save money. Mentioning JW website has a sales page (which store doesn't?!) cannot justify recommending an high-end, overpriced store in a book about saving money.

What made me really swear off this book is their advice about never taking any hand-me-downs from friends. This quote really sums of how misguided this book is (from the section recommending a new $190 playpen): "Yes, you can search government recall lists to see if that hand-me-down is recalled, but we'd skip the hassle and just buy new." What kind of a bargain book is this?

If you're looking for a way to justify buying a bunch of stuff you don't need or can't afford, this is the book for you. If you're looking for a bargain, the best is to save $12 and "skip the hassle" of buying this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book to Help Prepare for Baby 8 Dec. 2007
By Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was looking for a book that would provide some guidance on what items were actually necessities and what features to look for when selecting baby items. I selected this book based on the reviews here.

The book is very easy to read, and provides great information about various products and brand names. For those of us new to baby products, the book does a great job of listing the pros and cons of various features available on each product.

I found the authors sometimes made recommendations based on faulty logic, but the authors' comments on the products were still useful in gathering information to come to our own conclusions.

As an example, the authors do not provide any information regarding walkers and jumpers. The authors claim that these products are inherently dangerous and should be banned. For purposes of injury tracking, the Consumer Product Safety Commission lumps walkers and jumpers into the same category so both items are included in the same statistics. I did some research and learned that the majority of reported injuries occur with jumpers, not walkers. And of injuries and deaths connected to the use of walkers, those incidences were almost entirely related to children falling down a flight of stairs while using a walker. Based on that data, we determined that walkers are not dangerous, although some parents seem to be.

I would have appreciated it if the book included a complete checklist of the items needed to stock a nursery, and how many of those items to have on hand. That would have been helpful when we were registering for baby items.

While the book is potentially useful in finding bargains, I think it is most valuable for the advice it provides. It delivers very practical information.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have if you are buying for a baby on the way... 11 Jan. 2013
By Derek A Fuller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was our "go-to" reference when shopping and registering for all the stuff that a new baby will need. It gives very clear and accurate information, reviews and comparisions between similar products. All allowing us to come to our own decisions based on our needs, preferences and budgets. This book saved us hundreds if not thousands of dollars by helping us shop better and more informed.

A must have for any soon-to-be parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute MUST have... 27 Nov. 2007
By K. Gabbard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When my husband and I found out we were pregnant I immediately found out just how overwhelming the books, stores and general preparation would be for us. Thank
fully one of the first articles I read mentioned this book and I picked it up right after the 7th edition released. It's the only thing that helped to demystify all of the choices as well as all the unsolicited advice I received. I felt empowered to make my own decisions and get a sense of how I would begin to handle and prepare for becoming a mom. I am so grateful for this book and I'll buy it for anyone who is getting ready to go through their first pregnancy or even subsequent ones. It may not tell you how to parent or how to care for a baby (they have a book for that too) but it helps you get a handle on the "stuff" you need when you become a parent for the first time.

As a quick summary, this book isn't just about bargains. It will help you save money, but it compares quality, history of the manufacturers, useful advice from parents, cost, safety and more. It helps you weigh out options like a travel system vs. stroller and carseat and breast pump comparisons. From the crib and furniture to maternity clothing to clothes and bedding, this book really covers it all.

Last note - I'm due in less than two weeks now and decided to pick up another book from these authors, Baby 411. So far I have equally rave reviews and I praise the easy reference format again (like Baby Bargains) that will no doubt help me as my daughter arrives.
