Waste of money, no help, don’t buy
This “book” offers no troubleshooting and no real help. It assumes your baby will follow these guidelines and this schedule, but what happens when he/she does not? The other information is so basic, most new moms more than likely already have this knowledge. It is also quite old fashioned and some of the advice is actually not great at all. Lastly this is not a book. It’s a PDF marketed as a book. Don’t buy this!!!
Apple should Remove this book
Scam artists selling a glorified PDF as a book. Impossible to read on iPhone. This is not an iBook. It is a PDF that they uploaded and Apple should not allow this. Terrible.
Coldest Approach to Parenting
By Well Read Momma
If you would prefer to parent your child like he/she is a pet, not a human, this book is for you. I was extremely disappointed in the content, particularly since it was recommended to me by a pediatrician. Some of the advice contradicts health and safety recommendations by the AAP, LLL, and your everyday parenting experience. I read about the authors thinking, since they proclaimed to be Christian, the approach would be warm and caring. It, sadly, is not. Very cold and rigid, particularly for a breastfeed baby. If I knew how to return the electronic copy, I would. It's complete junk.
I had one of the nurses visit my home with my first child. Everyone finally got some sleep with the nurses' foolproof swaddle technique.
I've read all their books and they are easy to read, logical and effective.
Best money I've ever spent on childcare tips and I recommend them to everyone.
Hard to read on phone
This book is in a weird format. It's very hard to read on the iPhone. I have to keep zooming in and scrolling around. I've read hundreds of books on my phone and never had a problem until this one. Content is good but just one of many perspectives to consider. I never buy paper books any more but wish I had on this one because it's difficult to read.

I was really excited about this book when I first read it and immediately started applying what I read with my 4 week old son. My baby did his longest stretch of sleep that night and I was raving about this book. However, in the days that followed my baby wasn't following the schedule that this book laid out. I tried and tried but my baby was out and I could not wake him up for a feeding for almost 45 minutes and threw of the schedule leaving me feeling like a failure! I'm disappointed because this book does not provide any troubleshooting for when your newborn is crying and rooting around at 2 hours but they are not supposed to eat for 3 hours, or when my baby wakes almost every hour one night crying and wants to eat. This book just provides very basic bullet points of what your baby should be doing. Well, I can read plenty of books that tell me what my baby should be doing, but what about when they don't do that despite your best efforts? First time mommies need a lot more guidance than bullet points!
Moms On Call Basic Baby Care: 0-6 Months
I first downloaded the sample before buying the complete book. The book appeared to have the content I was looking for, based on the table of contents found in the sample. I looked at the ratings, and the book received good reviews. I decided to buy the book- what a disappointment it was when I finally browsed through the complete book! All the book contained were lists and bullet points. The book contained mere checklists for reach section identified in the table of contents. To make things worse, the book’s contents were nothing enlightening or enriching even for new mommies; practically everything written in the book were common sense. What a waste of money.
