Since I read this book while pregnant, what I especially liked in it was the description of what to expect the very first time I put baby to breast -- right after birth, that is. The descriptions of common problems that may come up (and how to deal with them) seemed clear, too. I thought it was a good introduction to breastfeeding, but I'll know just how good of an introduction it was in a few weeks, I suppose!

Recommended to me by fellow staffer @katemcangus (to whom @ablachly recommended), this book has it all. The entire team of Sears doctors worked to put together this in-depth reference for virtually any questions you might have about your child’s development for the first couple of years. Something I return to quite often! A worthy resource.
