Must-Reads for Mamas-to-Be
Here are a few book recommendations from the Belly Mamas. Of course, we didn't have the time (or desire) to read every book under the sun, so please let us know which ones helped you during your pregnancy and new-mommyhood.
The Girlfriend’s Guide to Pregnancy
Mommy's Little Breastfeeding Book:
101 Tips your Baby Wants you to Know about Nursing
Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child
The Happiest Baby on the Block
The Baby Whisperer
Your Pregnancy Week by Week
Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy
A word of caution before you dive into any literature that deals with pregnancy and motherhood: You'll come to find there are countless theories on how to teach a baby to sleep or how to ensure a healthy fetus, and many of these theories contradict each other. Unfortunately, there isn't a 100-percent correct pregnancy or motherhood book that has all the answers (as far as we know, anyway. Let us know if you've found it!), so the Belly Mamas suggest reading a variety of books and putting to use the information you find most helpful and feel most comfortable with.
