Throughout this week you have seen many posts about the new books “What to Expect the Second Year”, including a giveaway. Now it’s my turn to tell you what my thought are on this book.
I was given an ARC which wasn’t fulling finished yet but I was able to get a very good idea about how the book will look and read. I am very impressed with this book. Within the first couple chapters I was excited to finally find some helpful answers to some issues I’ve been having with Moo. One of them being that she is constantly taking her poopy diaper off every night and we are just getting tired of it. We’ve tried so much and two ideas from the book we have tried and they are starting to work, one being using tape and the other teaching that poop goes in the potty, no the wall or anywhere else.
The more I read into this book the more I found myself marking almost every page. I do want to point out that this book is set up differently then the first two Heidi Murkoff has written. Instead of going month by month the book goes through each issue and milestone one at a time, not giving you specific times. I think mainly because by this age every child develops at a different pace then another child.
I recommend this book and ALL of the “What to Expect” books for every parent/parent-to-be. I lived off the first two and I know this second one will be close by for all my new questions.
