The World’s Best Baby and Parenting Books

Product Information

When searching for parenting and baby books, skip the ones written by celebrity mom’s who barely did any of the work themselves. They are just selling their name and exploiting their child in the processes. Purchase and read books from Real Mothers as well as professional psychologists, teachers and doctors – they’ll tell you the real truth about raising children.

I have read hundreds of these parenting books over years of raising my children and before I had them and I’d like to share with you which I feel are the best. This list also contains books recommended by my mother and my best friend.

Belly Laughs: The Naked Truth about Pregnancy and Childbirth

Oh, the joys of pregnancy! There’s the gassiness, constipation, queasiness, and exhaustion, the forgetfulness, crankiness, and the constant worry.

In the New York Times best-selling Belly Laughs, actress and new mother Jenny McCarthy reveals the naked truth about the tremendous joys, the excruciating pains, and the unseemly disfigurement that go along with pregnancy. Never shy, frequently crude, and always laugh-out-loud funny, McCarthy covers it all in the grittiest of girlfriend detail.
