Any of you out there expecting? Or do you know someone who is? Here are a couple of books that would make a great gift for someone you know who is expecting. Both of these books are chock full of information. The first book is The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth ($17.95). The second is The Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby's First Year ($17.85). Both books are written by Rallie McAllister and Jennifer Bright Reich.
The Mommy MD Guides are each loaded with over 900 tips for pregnancy and baby's first year. The tips are from doctors who are also mothers.
Lets start with the Pregnancy and Birth. The book is divided into 4 sections, the first 3 dealing with the three trimesters, and the last dealing with baby's birth. Each section is then broken down into chapters. A chapter for each week of your pregnancy and them 3 chapters dealing with the baby's birth. The book is nice in that it is not information overload, and it is literally written in sections of hints and tips. Throughout the book there are boxes that contain questions and answers, like "When should you call the midwife?", and there are are also boxes with recommended products. The book is a well of information, yet it comes across in an easy to read manner.
Your Baby's First Year is set up in the same manner, with questions and recommended products. This book is also written in an easy to read manner, with each tip being shared in a friend to friend type style. The chapters are each of the 12 months of baby's first year.
Both of these books would make great reads for first time mothers, but I would also recommend them for all expectant moms. These are the type of books that you can read and highlight and then re-read as needed. The kind of book you will leave on your nightstand throughout your pregnancy and baby's first year.
