Hi. Which are your Top 5 books about pregnancy or early steps? I am a nerd and my wife is pregnant. I’d love to read and know more about what’s happening 😀 Tks

    All of the what to expect books are really good.

    Aww that’s so nice of you! I wish my husband educated himself a little when I got pregnant lol. I agree with anon, I really liked the what to expect books. I also get weekly email updates from baby center. Alls I had to do was enter my email and due date

    I liked the Mayo Clinic preg book too. What to expect is a fine option. If she’s breastfeeding, read a book about that so you can support. Nursing mothers guide was helpful to me. Or read the what to expect the first year.

    All the suggestions above are great!!! I’d also like to put in a plug for reading anything you want now before baby comes. And your wife too. Maybe I’m an extreme case, but I was an avid reader before I had a child. She’s a year and a half now and I’ve only been able to read about 10 pages of the oh crap potty training book (so far so good and I am confident I’ll finish the book before my daughter starts high school, lol). I also spent 8 minutes of my life reading the wonder weeks book before I realized that I’d been suckered into buying a book by a dr who is just guessing how it all works like the rest of us. Soooo....read! Have fun! Enjoy this!!! Ps, sorry for the unsolicited advice.

    Having read all sorts of books I now feel I wish I had only read two- 1. Dear Parent, Caring for Infants with Respect by Magda Gerber 2. Elevating Child Care by Janet Lansbury.

    The Mayo pregnancy guide is great and it’s a great idea to read a breastfeeding book for support, just don’t try to fix and correct her if she’s struggling. My husband did that and I know he was trying to help but it made me want to stab him a little bit 😂
