Without a doubt, Baby 411 is definitely among the best books ever written for parents and caregivers regarding the appropriate and very logical approach to infant and child care. It is cleverly written, easy to understand, well organized and often extremely humorous. Parents, grandparents and anyone responsible for the rearing and day-to-day care of children should have this book available as a ready resource. I do!

Finally, a book (Expecting 411) for pregnant women and their families that’s accurate and informative without being stuffy or alarmist: hard to believe it’s written by doctors, but it is–and they’ve done a great job. It’s on target and even make you laugh out loud at times (appropriately, though . . .)!
