      This book was the bane of our existence when I worked in baby retail Customers strolled in asking for random X and Y brands they d read in the book and scrolled through the list, Oh, do you have N then P Furniture s a revolving door industry, and many brands don t last, while newbie brands don t see media or Baby Bargains exposure until a year or years into their life At the same time, staple brands will probably have a history of a couple or recalls, etc simply due to the fact they ve been aro [...]

    2. Laura on said:

      This book is badly in need of an editor While filled with useful information for which I m grateful, it is rife with grammar errors and omitted words At one point, the entire first half of a paragraph stops abruptly with no period, and repeats verbatim below This is not a few subtle mistakes either It happens every few pages and is very distracting Sometimes I m not quite sure what the authors are trying to say and have to make up missing words and guess where they were going with the thought Oh [...]

      So this book says it will save you hundreds of dollars, and I honestly don t know if it did will do that because I didn t try doing this without the book What I do know is that it gave me a lot of peace of mind, since I was able to narrow down the literally thousands of baby products out there to what I actually need and what I actually want That peace of mind is worth way than a few hundred bucks I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is expecting, and in fact I have.

    4. Briana on said:

      Buying baby gear is overwhelming This book gives reviews, feedback and purchasing options for all of the baby gear you could ever possible need I appreciated the reviews and information given about each brand and company and have followed many of their recommendations I would recommend this book to anyone having a baby who needs help choosing baby gear

    5. Michelle Bellman on said:

      This book was critical in helping me know what I truly needed for baby With so much commercialism around pregnancy and newborns, it s hard to know what to buy If you are frugal, have a small space or simply don t want to buy into the whole concept of needing a ton of stuff for baby, this is a must read.

    6. Melissa on said:

      This is a truly awesome book for parents to be and parents The newest edition 11th just came out this year, 2011 In figuring out what baby products my husband and I needed for our very soon to be born daughter, I read both this book and a Consumer Reports website guide I subscribed to the site for one month, for about 8 This book is far, far better than the Consumer Reports guide, because it provides grades A through F of many, many different products, not just the big ticket items like the car [...]

    7. Kimberly on said:

      If there is one book that every expectant parent needs to have, it s this one I ve used it numerous times throughout my pregnancy, and it has made many of our decisions in terms of purchases MUCH easier I bought both this book and Consumer Reports Baby, and ended up taking Consumer Reports back it didn t offer nearly as much information as Baby Bargains.The book is broken down into chapters according to baby s needs cribs, dressers, gear, clothing, etc Each chapter begins by suggesting what you [...]

    8. Julie on said:

      We ve found this book very helpful But even helpful thrift stores don t be afraid hand me downs soooo fantastic cloth diapers prefolds covers work great, are EASY, and save thousands homemade baby food chop, steam, puree, freeze It s really that easy Craigslist baby items obsolesce so fast There s a glut of high quality used stuff on Craigslist People generally are forced to sell at less than 50% of what they paid new, even if the item is highly desirable and in perfect condition There s really [...]

    9. Kirsten on said:

      Obviously this book has a fairly limited audience people who are about to buy a whole bunch of baby stuff So I m not really recommending it widely, but for its intended audience, it s excellent I love rating systems and reading user reviews since I m a fairly picky shopper read cheap This is a whole book of ratings and reviews, but it s than that, too As someone who really didn t know anything about baby gear what s necessary, what s extra this book was a great introduction to what everything i [...]

    10. Sara on said:

      Very informative with a lot of useful information for someone who, like me, really hasn t the foggiest clue when it comes to baby stuff On the other hand, I think it s perhaps a little bit of information overload and could use some serious editing I found some sections a bit frustrating as they recommended brands that might only be found at specialty stores or in specific locations, making them hard to find I found this to be particularly true in furniture Also, I found some of their ratings par [...]

    11. Kari on said:

      I just finished the 9th edition couldn t locate the edition here on It was absolutely everything I had hoped it would be an As a first time mom to be, I ve been so worried about which products were safest, easiest to use, which ones were a waste of money, and what was absolutely necessary to have before baby comes I LOVE that this book eliminated so much time effort in painstaking research I would otherwise have had to do I m thinking this will be a go to gift for friends family when they annou [...]

    12. Danielle on said:

      Got this book from the library on the recommendation of a friend It was definitely helpful in giving us an overview of what we need and orienting us toward options, but when it came to the specific products it recommended or didn t , it was super hit and miss I combined what I learned here with extensive internet based research I would recommend this book to others, but caution them to also look at online reviews before making purchasing decisions.

    13. Krystal on said:

      For a first time mom, this book was a great start to understanding all the crazy baby gear out there It really broke everything down and I liked how price was always featured You can easily find products within your budget using this book Some of the websites he suggested were new to me, so I think it was worth the price I paid for this book

    14. Kate on said:

      A great resource for wading through the hundreds of options of baby gear Baby Bargains includes great information on not just the pricing of items, but also where and how they are manufactured, various safety concerns, etc Easy to read with great recommendations, I found myself highlighting something on almost every page.

    15. Josh on said:

      This certainly did its job and told us where to splurge and where not to, and I think we ll be picking up the author s toddler etc book We re going to keep using this book as a reference but I m sick of it being on my reading shelf so there you go It s a 4 star book but I docked it one star for horrible puns.

    16. Shawna on said:

      5 stars Nonfiction Baby PreparationThis book was a lifeline that helped me to prepare for traversing the perilous waters of baby shopping registering A great guide for first time, overwhelmed, expectant parents

    17. Hannah Notess on said:

      Really useful.Also a bit like being metaphorically bludgeoned to death by a million collapsible strollers I could only allow myself to read it for so many hours.Of course the best bargain of all was borrowing it from the public library aka the best civic institution of ALL TIME.

    18. Danielle on said:

      This book is amazing especially for new parents to be like myself.I think of it as a consumer reports type book on baby stuff They don t have ads so their suggestions are unbiased.Every chapter starts off with the extremely helpful 7 things you didn t know about chapter topic ex car seats, cribs, diaper pails It s great advice on how to figure out what s needed for your child family.I m so happy my cousin gifted me this book I m reading the current 12th edition.There is also a companion website [...]

    19. Jenny France on said:

      A friend recommended this title to me, and I would recommend it to anyone expecting a baby It makes preparing and selecting items for a new baby much less overwhelming and provides useful costsaving tips Kindle edition 288 pages.

    20. Maria Shuffit on said:

      I recently checked this book out at my library, looking for some tips in just a couple of key areas But I ended up reading almost the entire thing just out of sheer interest, even the sections I d already covered for my wedding The pros There is a lot of really good information in here for the average bride This is not the book to pick up if you are aiming for an over the top, no budget limitations wedding If you want to learn some of the practical sides of wedding planning, find out how to sav [...]

    21. Lori on said:

      Once I properly sat down with this book an read through their reviews and then subsequent recommendations, it all made sense And here s the deal, if you re coming to this thinking you ll automatically eliminate half the bill you expected to spend, stop and readjust I got the perspective all wrong at first Babies cost money Their attendant gear costs money And with most important purchases in life, you have to consider whether what your buying as a bargain i.e quality investment for the money spe [...]

      Not too many new things here if you ve ever made minimum wage, made just a little than minimum wage, attended college, or jumped on the Mackle bandwagon If we re being honest, you re out of college now with a degree and most likely under employed What you should do shop at thrift stores, garage sales, craigslist, ebay, diperswappers etc , in stores or online with coupons, breastfeed, make your own baby food, and cloth diaper the little one What you shouldn t do buy used car seats, used breast p [...]

    23. Courtney on said:

      Thinking this is like a 4.5 Definitely recommend this book to first time parents who feel overwhelmed when they think about all the stuff they have to buy for baby Even before I got pregnant, just thinking about all the stuff made me dizzy Thank goodness for resources like this book I love how user friendly it isAt first the 600 pages looked daunting, but the labeled tabs, index, and detailed table of contents not to mention the generally organized way the book is overall made it easy to jump a [...]

    24. Karen on said:

      Upon finding out about the impending arrival of Little Buchs, one of my first thoughts was, how do I avoid all of the STUFF that seems to quickly accumulate when there s a kid around Living in a city home with limited space and storage, this is a huge concern for me Luckily my doctor has a similar mindset and recommended this great book to me Baby Bargains outlines what baby gear is necessary and what is a total waste of money while providing thorough and thoughtful reviews to help you navigate [...]

    25. Caitlin on said:

      As a first time parent to be, I was completely lost in terms of what we needed to prepare for the baby I don t have too many close friends who have kids, so I didn t have that many resources to seek out for advice I was turned onto this book by a friend, and it has been our baby bible It is so helpful in terms of detailing not only what you need, but how much you need to spend on each thing For instance, I probably would have bought a crib thinking it was safer for the baby, not knowing that all [...]

    26. Amy B on said:

      I m a soon to be first time mom, and every time I think about the arrival of our daughter, my mind starts racing I need a crib I need a stroller, a carseat, diapers, clothingWhat do I know about any of these things Absolutely nothing How will I know what to buy What s good What s necessary Phew Luckily, I heard about the Baby Bargain book The Baby Bargain book is a great buy and not necessarily because I ll be saving the 20% 50% advertised on the cover I love that this book goes into everything [...]

    27. Jody on said:

      i d definitely recommend this book to new parents but with a rather large grain of salt it s great to see reviews of things like car seats and cribs things i knew nothing about before needing them, HOWEVER, the authors don t put much stock at all into some of the things i really care about, the main one being eco concerns they state in a few different places in the book that there is no evidence to suggest that off gassing substances found in certain plastics or fire retardants are harmful, whic [...]

    28. Sara Elice on said:

      This is a must have book for any new parent who has no idea how to navigate the baby gear market The authors don t only present the best ways to get bargains on baby gear in fact, this wasn t nearly the most prominent or useful part of the book , but they present reviews and information on major brands and models of key equipment for babies so you can make informed decisions as to safety, ease of use, relative cost, comfort, aesthetics, etc for cribs, strollers, car seats, swings, bouncers, high [...]

    29. Ellen on said:

      Without this shopping guide, I could not have overcome the overwhelming task of researching and preparing for my first baby In fact, I regret that I hesitated to pick it up when it was first recommended to me This book is much than a bargain guide It is the only comprehensive source of baby gear reviews and practical recommendations that I found, and the authors are not financially incentivized by manufacturers unlike many websites which receive advertising support I have the 2008 edition in wh [...]

    30. Melva on said:

      Most comprehensive guide to baby equipment I have yet to find My husband and I are expecting our first child, and this guide has been immensely helpful in giving us an idea of what we need to buy to prepare for our child The book gives brand reviews, which are a bit subjective but helpful in comparing features I would never have thought to consider The best part, though, are the tips on what you need to buy everything from the big stuff cribs, car seats, etc to little stuff safety gates, medical [...]
