Expand Your Library: 4 Books You Must Read When You Have a Baby

Learning about babies before you have one can definitely help you manage those first few months in your new life. While I feel like I've read a ton of books on parenting, there are definitely a few that stand out in my head as MUST READS for new parents. Hell, I didn't read this first suggestion until after we already had two kids and I was pregnant with our third. And let me tell you, it changed my life. I can honestly say that if you only have time for one book, Harvey Karp's is the one to read. Over and over and over again.

1. The Happiest Baby on the Block:
The New Way to Calm Crying
and Help Your Newborn Sleep Longer

After your life is changed by this one,
go ahead and buy the sequel:
