extra, extra, read all about it

if you are expecting your first baby, let's face it...your world is about to be rocked. and, being bombarded with advice is a part of pregnancy we don't necessarily...ummm, cherish. that said, there are some very well-written books on the market today that can really help parents-to-be prepare for their new arrivals. our resident preggofabulous "chick"offers these books as her 3 picks for best baby's-almost-here-and-we're-still-clueless pieces of literature:

1. the happiest baby on the block, by dr. harvey karp- covering topics such as colic, why babies cry and how to soothe a baby, this is an easy & interesting read that of course you won't ever need because your baby is not going to cry ;)

2. happy child, healthy sleep habits, by marc weissbluth- being deemed the "sleep bible" by some of our mama-chick friends, we're told..."don't give birth without it." check it out for yourself...and get more zzzzzz's.

3. girlfriend's guide to pregnancy: or everything your doctor won't tell you, by vicki iovine- fun, wise and witty. takes a sassy look at everything from cesareans to cellulite and puts it all in laywoman's terms. it's one giant "you go girl!" for the expectant mama.
