I bought this book on the back of 'What To Expect When You Are Expecting' and having borrowed this one from the library first. Both books are excellent, however I pre-ordered the 2008 edition, having read the 2004.

Why not 5 stars? Another review comments on the anglicising of the US law and support references, which is certainly the case in the 2004 edition What to Expect the First Year (What to Expect) but the 2008 edition is the American edition What to Expect the First Year and all the references are to the US system, some of which are completely different to UK, eg in the US the hospital files for your baby's birth certificate, here you register baby yourself. (A fairly obvious difference which is made very clear in hospital if you weren't already aware, but what else may be less obvious?)

This is not the book's fault, it's just not clear in the listing, so I mention it here. On the whole, the general advice is just as relevant wherever you are.

Interesting and, if you liked what to expect when you're expecting, as you'd expect. It is worth noting though that it is written for the US market and some of the information is to relevant to the UK.

Great book, I got good use out of it. There is a lot to read and I found it helpful to read a few bits at a time when I was pregnant, so I indeed knew what to expect. It gave me peace of mind when the baby arrived as I found that many things I worried about where written about in the book. I can't recommend it enough

I really liked this book. It is organised by months and gives some basic information as well as answering a lot of practical questions that I was asking myself. It has very usueful tips and also some practical sections on illnesses, how to dress baby in all weathers and relationships between the parents. I highly recommend it as a reference book.
