My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby’s First Years is an extensive guide for parents of children from newborn to 3 years old. It’s an excellent book for first time parents as well as experienced parents. If you have a question about your baby, or if you just want to see what milestones he or she should be reaching at each age, it’s a great resource.

I’m planning on getting another copy of this for our son who is a first time parent. They often have questions, and I don’t mind answering them, but I’m sure having the information on hand will be comforting.

Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby’s First Years is definitely a resource parents should have on hand.
