As an expectant first time dad, I found this to be really interesting. I liked the tips for what things you actually need in those early days, rather than what things the shops tell you or what things you think look nice. I am still an expectant parent, so it's early days, however, I'm hoping to benefit from this book in a few months time.

I think it is mainly written for the Moms point of view, but I really did find it interesting and would recommend it to other dads out this.

This has been one of the best books that we've bought to prepare us for and continue to help us through parenthood. It's simple, doesn't talk down to you and pretty much answers every question that pops into our heads. I really found the list of things we'd actually need and the list of desirable items very useful when buying things for our baby- there was a lot of stuff we were considering getting that we definitely wouldn't have needed!

I really enjoyed this book, it was full of good advice and not patronising.
It was light and humorous but full of good information and made me feel more relaxed about the prospect of becoming a first time mother.
