This movie was beyond funny and gave you a look into the lives of expecting parents in a variety of situations. I really enjoyed it and the “What To Expect..” series is a must for new parents and existing. The books really do contain everything you need to know through your parenting journey!
What to Expect When You’re Expecting, 4th Edition
Announcing a brand new, cover-to-cover revision of America’s pregnancy bible. What to Expect When You’re Expecting is a perennial New York Times bestseller and one of USA Today‘s 25 most influential books of the past 25 years. It’s read by more than 90% of pregnant women who read a pregnancy book–the most iconic, must-have book for parents-to-be, with over 14.5 million copies in print.
Now comes the Fourth Edition, a new book for a new generation of expectant moms–featuring a new look, a fresh perspective, and a friendlier-than-ever voice. It’s filled with the most up-to-date information reflecting not only what’s new in pregnancy, but what’s relevant to pregnant women. Heidi Murkoff has rewritten every section of the book, answering dozens of new questions and including loads of new asked-for material, such as a detailed week-by-week fetal development section in each of the monthly chapters, an expanded chapter on pre-conception, and a brand new one on carrying multiples. More comprehensive, reassuring, and empathetic than ever, the Fourth Edition incorporates the most recent developments in obstetrics and addresses the most current lifestyle trends (from tattooing and belly piercing to Botox and aromatherapy). There’s more than ever on pregnancy matters practical (including an expanded section on workplace concerns), physical (with more symptoms, more solutions), emotional (more advice on riding the mood roller coaster), nutritional (from low-carb to vegan, from junk food–dependent to caffeine-addicted), and sexual (what’s hot and what’s not in pregnant lovemaking), as well as much more support for that very important partner in parenting, the dad-to-be.
Overflowing with tips, helpful hints, and humor (a pregnant woman’s best friend), this new edition is more accessible and easier to use than ever before. It’s everything parents-to-be have come to expect from What to Expect… only better.
Everything new parents need to know about the care (and feeding) of an infant, from the authors of What to Expect® When You’re Expecting. Covers monthly growth and development, feeding for every age and stage, sleep strategies that really work.
Filled with the most practical tips (how to give a bath, decode your baby’s crying, what to buy for baby, and when to return to work) and the most up-to-date medical advice (the latest on vaccines, vitamins, illnesses, SIDS, safety, and more).
Reassuring Answers to Hundreds of Questions, including:
- What’s the best kind of car seat for my newborn?

What to Expect the Second Year: From 12 to 24 Months
Heidi Murkoff’s What to Expect has delivered again. Announcing the arrival of a brand-new member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year. The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 9.7 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums).
Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.
From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world. There’s a developmental time line of the second year plus special “milestone” boxes throughout that help parents keep track of their toddler’s development. Thinking of traveling with tot in tow? There’s a chapter for that, too.

I did it. I bought Toodie her first PLAY-DOH set. I couldn’t resist. The kit alone was adorable. You can make your own ice cream cones, popsicles, and milkshakes! I’ve been putting off introducing her to play-doh for a while now but I feel like it’s inevitable since she has started school. After all, how messy could this stuff REALLY be? I might be hitting myself later when it gets stuck in the carpet or up her nose BUT every kid needs to experience it.
When i saw the “Scoops ‘N Treats” box while shopping the other night, I knew this would be perfect for Toodie. She loves sweet treats, especially ice cream! It is also age appropriate which I was really happy with. It came with 8 play-doh colors, a waffle cone press, popsicle sticks, ice cream cones, and even sundae dishes. Hard to believe all this was packed in that tiny box! Seems like a really great beginners kit for someone starting off with play-doh. Toodie had a blast! Within minutes she was a “PLAY-DOH PRO” telling me how to scoop the ice cream and create a waffle cone. To my astonishment, she didn’t get it on the floor, in her hair, and didn’t feed any of it to our dogs!
Toodie was more occupied with the waffle cone press than the actual PLAY-DOH! The kit came with everything you need to make ice cream cones, sundaes, and popsicles. You had the option of making different color ice cream scoops and decorating them with a cherry on top, swirly designs, and even little hearts. Once she saw me making a mini waffle cone she thought it was really a pancake. She took all her play-doh pieces and pressed all of them into small waffles … or “pancakes” as she calls them. Forget the ice cream! It was all about waffles and pancakes.
Before turning the ice cream scoops into waffles we did assemble a few fun popsicles and ice cream creations. The popsicle was a favorite for both of us. She loved pushing the play-doh into the mold and pushing the stick in. All of them came out so cute and miniature! The clean up wasn’t too bad and our first attempt at playing with play-doh was successful. If you are just introducing play-doh to your child, I recommend these little kits. It contains everything you need and you can always by additional colors to play with. I found mine at Walmart and from what I saw, they have popcorn maker one too!

“surprise” aspect. I had to start doing it here and there. But I still love seeing her face when there is a surprise in her room waiting for her when she returns home.
