Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book for my partner since we are expecting our first child soon, and he loves it! He’s bit a huge reader, but this book is an easy read and includes pictures for guidance. 10/10 recommend for new dads!
3.0 out of 5 starsIt's good, but could be more specific

I LOVED the "We're Pregnant" book by the same author, so got this for my husband for Father's Day. It's got the same humor and has some helpful hints, I just wish it was a little more specific in terms of what to expect with the newborn in the first few weeks.
Waste of time. This book suggests alternative schedules for immunization. What hogwash. If they are going to feed pseudo science, then what else do are they misrepresenting in this book? Really sad I waited to long to return this.

I am disappointed by this book for going against widely accepted scientific advice regarding bed sharing (namely - don't do it!) and for suggesting that the current vaccination schedule is something to look into and request that vaccines be spread out more. I am curious as to the medical background of the author where he feels comfortable making suggestions that could potentially injure or kill a child.
Interestingly, he refers to AAP guidance for discontinuing use of walkers but has no mention of their recommendations for safe sleep (from the AAP website: Recommendations for a safe sleep environment include supine positioning, the use of a firm sleep surface, room-sharing without bed-sharing, and the avoidance of soft bedding and overheating).
I also found that this book had way too much "opinion." I wonder if any of the specific products recommended had any sort of benefit to him for suggesting them? As a nitpick... I don't support MLMs and find it odd that Usborn Books were suggested as well.
There are a few helpful things in this book regarding general milestones and generally what to expect at each age, but I worry that someone would use -only- this book as a reference and and think that it is up to date and safe advice when it is not. I cannot recommend it and don't feel comfortable donating it because of the dangerous advice given about two very important things - safe sleep & vaccinations.
