Both a Pro and a Con: I didn't quite realize the sheer scope of this book when I bought it. At all. Now, don't get me wrong; I'd much rather have too much info than pay for a book and find it lacking. But be aware, there are many books out there with more generalized and condensed info on baby's first few years of care. If you want something to casually read on breaks as you wait out the last few months of pregnancy, you may want another book. This one is 19,945 pages on the Kindle app in my phone (960 pages in paperback form). That is a lot of valuable info, but be aware, I do mean a LOT. This makes it an indispensable go to reference, with an appendix that covers subjects from Abdominal/gastrointestinal tract to yeast infections, so it really touches on everything. But be aware, it is huge, and not everyone will realistically feel like reading it cover to cover. I'm getting there, and even as a fast reader, I am not even done with baby's first year.

Pro: This book will lay out many of the what's and why's of what your midwife or ob/gyn (during pregnancy) and pediatrician (once the baby is born) will recommend for their patients. This is because, obviously, it lays out the standards of the AAP. It's all backed by science. You may expect no anti vaxxer nonsense here whatsoever. (Score!)

Pro: Sensibly organized from conception through the first five years. If you're wondering where baby should probably be developmentally by the eighth month, then you can easily find this info. Milestones are laid out in an intuitive and easy to understand way (which again cements this as a truly indispensable reference to have.)

Con: Tone is a little dry. That is not to say that it is not enjoyable, but it does read like a text book in terms of both tone and quantity. The positive here though is that you don't experience any of the filler that I've found with some other baby books that get repetitive or "fluffy." There is a lot of words in this book, and the docs who wrote it made each one count.

I highly recommend this for first time parents.

Most baby books on the market are just repackaged versions of the AAP recommendations anyway, so I decided to go straight to the source. Yes most of the information is stuff you could get on the internet for free, but that is true of all baby guides nowadays. The benefit of buying the book (besides not being subjected to those annoying "mom advice forums" that clog most baby websites) is that it gives a quick and concise explanation of any issue I am encountering with my baby or toddler. I use it as a quick reference guide-baby has a fever? Lets see what the book says to do. It saves me a ton of time vs. wading through a dozen internet results to find something written by an actual doctor. This guide does not try to be your sassy best friend or wise grandmother, it is a straightforward how-to guide for common issues parent will face with a typical baby.

As the parents of a newborn there is no such thing as being prepared. My wife and I read a ton of books during pregnancy, but the second our little girl arrived, we had more questions than answers and were constantly asking each other 'what do we do'. This book has been great. From breast feeding, to tummy time, coombs positive newborns, etc, this book has had an answer to every question we've wondered about so far. It is reassuring that the book comes from the American Academy of Pediatrics. It certainly helps us to feel good about taking the advice or following the recommendations that we've found in the book. They say there are no stupid questions, and this book seems to take that to heart making sure to cover even the most basic questions and myths about raising kids. I think as a parent its easy to just go to the internet and search for an answer when you are stumped or need to know what to do, but I think this book is probably a better resource. It costs more that the 'free' advice on the net, but I would think most parents like me would sleep better knowing you are actually getting correct and accurate information instead of some 'know it all' mom's advice from a blog.
