    What to expect when your expecting was a winner for me. Had every thing I wanted in it! The amount of nights I would sit up reading every little thing in it was great. I also had that day by day calender and made me cry most days cause of whats growing and whats developed lol.

    What to Expect is great. I didn't like Up the Duff, not my sense of humour. But my favourite was without doubt Ina May's Guide to Childbirth!

    I enjoyed Up The Duff but also wanted more serious info as it was my first pregnancy, so I also read What to Expect.

    I borrowed "The Contented Little Baby" by Gina Ford and read it prior to the arrival of DS. Now reading "Save Our Sleep" by Tizzie Hall, which is very similar.

    My suggestion: if you want to get your baby into a routine, I suggest that you read either of the above books BEFORE baby arrives then re-read to refresh your memory. It is easier to have what you want to do in terms of routine already in your mind, then refresh the memory, rather than bt trying to get to grips with a concept while dealing with the new baby. From my recent experience anyway

    Up the duff, on the breast handbook & the sensible sleep solution. I prefer light hearted, designed not to scare books. I have to say up the duff has been fantastic and has helped to give me a real sense of calm, nothing scary in that book.

    All of these books should be read before baby arrives

    Good luck with your pregnancy!
