    By Archeryhuntr
    What a great book!!! This book gives you the information you need but doesn't overhelm you with too much information (that you forget or that freeks you out)...It is practical and very funny too. A great gift for any new mom or mom-to-be!!!

  • For my baby's baby

    By LoriEllenW
    What a wonderful book. I have been reading Ivana's blog since it first came out and it is also wonderful. She uses humor very well. Helps keep things in perspective. I had to get this right away for my daughter and she isn't even getting married unlit Sept 21st! But they are already talking about kids and I want her to be well prepared. I can think of no better guide for my daughter (well, except me… :-)),

    The book is so fun and easy to read. I wish it was around during my first pregnancy. It is definitely on my shopping list the next time a friend is expecting.
