Baby Bump: Baby Bargains

For expectant mothers who haven't a clue what they've gotten themselves into (you know who you are), please go get Baby Bargains ($12). I took this book with me every time I left the house to buy something for my baby-to-be. It's the most genius book for first time mothers. Divided up into sections on cribs, gliders, strollers, car seats, bedding, etc., the book rates each manufacturer on an A to F scale.

When you're standing among five cribs wondering which one won't collapse in the middle of the night, all you have to do is pull out Baby Bargains and see who got the best grade. The only downside is that you might discover that the one that looks the prettiest doesn't get an A+.

With so many choices to make, it's nice to have "someone" there to tell you what's best for baby.

This book is a must! It was invaluable when I was buying baby gear - even when I had to buy some new things for my second child. Plus, it's great that they release new editions as often as they do. I give it to every mother to be I know.

This book was my BIBLE for several months this fall when I was deciding on baby furniture and items. I read and took notes from each section and even took it into every baby store with me as a reference tool. I can't recommend it enough.

The book "Baby 411" by the same author is excellent! I'm expecting in March and can't get enough of the practical info in this book. I originally saw it lying around in my OB's office and while I was waiting ended up reading the first 40 pages!

I love this book and am using it now. It's much better than the Consumers Report Baby Book.
