Updated on April 7, 2012

Books recommended

Are you preparing for your first baby? Here are a list of good books that can help you. When me and my wife were getting ready for our first baby, these were the books recommended by our friends.

1. Child birth without fear: The principles and practice of natural childbirth (Pinter and Martin classics)

2. Birth to five - parenting book ( by NHS)

3. The pregnancy book 2007

4. What to expect the first year" by Heidi Murkoff,Arlene Eisenberg & Sandee Hathaway

5. The Baby Book, by Dr. Sears

6. The Baby Whisperer Solves All Your Problems: Sleeping, Feeding, and behavior--Beyond the Basics from Infancy Through Toddlerhood, by Tracy Hogg.

7. Vicki Iovine's Girlfriends' Guide to the First Year

8. The companion Girlfriends' Guides to pregnancy and toddler years

Both 7 and 8 are full of practical tips, not advocating any particular philosophies or programs but just telling it like it is.The books are also pretty funny, providing a reminder that keeping one's sense of humo(u)r is one of the best things a parent can do, esp. with a newborn and significant sleep deficit.

9 . What to Expect When You are Expecting

10. Your Pregnancy Bible - Consulting Editor Dr Anne Deans

11. The Contented Baby's First Years - Gina Ford

12. The Complete Sleep Guide - Gina Ford

You can buy these books cheap from amazon. Check the amazon links on the side

      Next time you wash your hair, Shampoo everything above your arimtps.That includes your whole Head, Face Neck, Shoulders and as much of your back as possible..Buy some Selsun Shampoo' for Dandruff. . This is EXCELLENT for all types of skin ailments.and will clear your Acne in about a week. Many of the other treatments are rather mild for serious Acne, so keep them for future use after your face is better. Selsun shampoo, cleans DEEP into the skin pores and is a powerful anti-bacterial, anti-fungal cleanser. Take care to rinse your face thoroughly after shampooing to remove all traces of Selsun'(Take a long shower ) because It has a slight drying effect, so alternate with a good quality Lanolin based soap to restore the natural body oils removed by the shampoo
