9 of 10

I admit, I skipped a little bit in this one, but by the time I realized how this book was set up, the parts I skipped were no longer relevant. Normally, when I read a book, I read the whole book...

What to Expect the First Year (Eisenberg, Murkoff, and Hathaway) was an informative read. I like the monthly chapters. I did not like that "the first postpartum days" and "surviving the first six weeks" were in section two- hidden behind month 13. Silly me, I didn't know I was supposed to start reading at the beginning AND in the middle at the same time. Plus, silly me got an outdated version for cheap on my favorite website ( if you were unaware) and later realized a more current version would have been worth the extra pennies. Oh well, live and learn. We've made it through the first 9 1/2 months on outdated information! I decided to read ahead a little bit and finish out the year. I can always go back and look up specifics from month 10, 11, 12 as they occur...

Of course this gets my stamp of approval, but only one.
