What to Get to Prepare for Baby: Win a Copy of “Baby Lists”

The amount of baby gear on the market is overwhelming.  It’s hard to distinguish the “must-haves” from the “nice-to-haves” when you’re browsing your favorite baby website or standing in the aisles of Babies R Us.  Baby Lists: What to Do and What to Get to Prepare for Baby, a consumer’s guide for expectant parents, provides practical advice on what to buy, why and how much of everything you’ll need.   

Baby Lists has practical lists of what to register for, how many onesies and burp cloths to buy, what to pack for the hospital, what questions to ask your prospective pediatrician, what questions to ask babysitters and nannies, and more.  Author and baby nurse, Elaine Farber, gives expert advice on how to pick a stroller, bouncy seat, swing, high chair, breast-pump, potty, toys, bath, and much more.  Her product suggestions and reviews help narrow down the options and take some of the guesswork out of buying expensive baby gear.  

If you’re feeling anxious about what to buy and how to prepare your nursery for baby, you’ll find this book indispensable.

  13. Heather Carney says:

    I’m 32 and expecting my first baby in September. The stuff is completely overwhelming. I went to one of those baby stores last weekend and walked out more confused than when I went in. I don’t know how anybody can afford to have a baby nowadays. I’m an older first-time Mom. I don’t have any friends who have had babies recently, so I’m suffering from a shortage of practical advice. How can I distinguish between the must-haves and the rest of the stuff? It makes my head spin! I totally need this book!!!

    We were on a grad student budget when our first baby was born, so we bought a lot of baby equipment used. Some of it I’ve been very happy with, but we’ll have a more generous budget when the next one comes along, so I’d love to get a few new things.
