I did most of my research online but there were a few books I found helpful after baby came.

One of my Favorite most helpful books was Super Baby Food. I used it a lot.
Super Baby Food Book | Everything You Need to Know About Feeding Your Baby


Anyone else have some good books to share?

I like the Girlfriends Guides-- they're very funny. There was one that I can't think of right now that was absolutely hilarious-- very sarcastic and funny, I'm pretty sure I read it when I was expecting my first-- a quick google search reveals it was called "Pregnancy Sucks: What to Do When Your Miracle Makes You Miserable! It was VERY funny.. Other than that, I just googled.

My favorite pregnancy book is Pregnancy Day by Day. Of course you can get most, if not all of the info online but I'm old fashioned and prefer books This one is great because it explains what is happening everyday and has a daily countdown. It also talks about L&D, after the baby is born, complications etc. It's very comprehensive.

We also have The Attachment Parenting Book by Dr. Sears. I haven't picked it up in a while but I really liked that it validated my maternal instincts early on with DD. Plan on reading it again closer to when this baby gets here.

Ina May Gaskin's guide to childbirth was a big read during my 2nd pregnancy and my first home birth.

As a ftm I really liked the Rikki Lake book. Oh dammit pregnancy brain... What was it called?! It goes along with the movie Business of Being Born... I'll come back when I remember.

I agree, Ina May Gaskin book guide to childbirth. I think a lot of women to through this knowing what to expect from the hospital and the doctors, but not really knowing how to trust their body and all that. Takes a lot of the nervousness out of having a baby when you feel comfortable with what's happening in your body.
