I would highly recommend this book to first time parents. As a mother of three I figured out most things myself long ago ( though even I found some good advice), but I wish I had this book then when I was a young parent.
I is amazing how many people believe that they need all kind of baby paraphernalia ( you don't), and it is specially sad when people on budget think like that and waste their money on such stupid things like baby wipe warmers and bassinets. This book has a lot of valuable information for such people.
