The Complete Day by Day Pregnancy Guide

Great book, but better as a companion to the Happiest Baby on the Block and Wonder Weeks. The 3 together really armed you with good knowledge. It's allowed us to really understand the new baby and be successful in using techniques and really understanding what baby is going through and their natural progressions.

Pretty informative

This was a great book and came with loads of extras, many of the extras seemed like repeats of the original book. Of course, I agree with mom staying at home as long as possible, living off one income, etc and many of his beliefs so it was right up my alley. If you and your husband don't have the same beliefs as him you will have issues with this book.

A Effective Tool

A very useful book. I especially like the month to month chapters of what to expect in terms of development, sleep, feeding, etc. The book includes pictures of helpful positioning and other graphics that are essential to clarify the text. If I could change something, I would want a more extensive chapter on pumping and children with special needs.

An amazing grab

Some parents tuck these thoughts away but there’s a better way to get rid of the anxiety. You get informed. You make the choice to educate yourself about what you don’t know. It takes time and effort but it’s worth it. And that’s what this book will help you do.
Inside, I’ll answer your most burning questions about pregnancy and labor. You’ll discover why there’s not much to worry about as you would expect. Together, we’ll walk arm in arm as I guide you through your pregnancy. One step at a time, we’ll explore the unknown, and you’ll even get answers to questions you didn’t know you had!

Nope.

There was nothing in this book that I didn’t read on free apps so I wouldn’t pay for it. Also honestly the guys voice is extremely irritating and hard to listen to. Sorry

Male narrator?

I enjoyed the book but would have enjoyed it more if there would have been a woman narrator.

Don’t Waste Your Money

This was the most elementary book about pregnancy and child birth I have ever encountered. Also, it is read by a man. How odd is that? Why wouldn’t a female be reading a book about a female experience? Don’t waste your money.
