Happiest Baby on the Block by Harvey Karp

Dr. Sears' Baby Book or anything from his library of AP-style books

No Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley - though you may find this more helpful in a few months -- there's no rhyme or reason to a newborn's sleep, IMO!

ditto....I LOVE the baby book by dr. sears. His website is really helpful too.
I also have the no cry sleep solution, but I haven't really used it all that much.

Im constantly refering to the baby book...answers most of my 3 am questions like...
What is a normal temperature?
What are symptoms of a problem?
How much does my baby need to sleep?
Whats up with my baby's receding hairline and acne....

Its very user friendly and a must have in my opinion!

Happy Reading!!

I reference the baby book a lot as well. It has things other books don't such as diagrams on how to swaddle a baby and the different sling holds. I also like the medical part of it. I haven't seen any other book with the correct dosages for Tylonol for an infant (they don't print it on the bottle). Very helpful in the middle of the night That is really about all I have left in terms of baby books, I got rid of the rest of them. I made myself crazy reading too many books with my first :LOL For the most part I think every mom has the tools she needs if she follows her instincts

Ditto on the Sears book! Except he seems really pro-vac. (Hep B for newborns!?!? Babies aren't IV drug users and they don't have sex, so why???)

Not all strictly "baby" books, but are the three books I give as baby shower gifts:

Your Baby and Child by Penelope Leach

Young at Art by Susan Striker

Read Aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease

and sometimes,

Teach Your Child by Miriam Stoppard

The latter book is proving invaluable with 3yo DD1 in talking about what's going on with 4.5mo DD2.
