Books I recommend for new moms:
The Happiest Baby on the Block-taught me how to calm a fussy baby and also how to keep a baby happy. Happy baby=Happy mom:)
Babywise-taught me how to get my babies to sleep through the night starting at 9-12 weeks. This is HUGE people and it really works!
Your Baby’s First Year by American Pediatric Association-gave me a good overview of what I could expect in the next few months of my baby’s life also answered lots of questions I had, a good general guidebook.
Craft Materials to have on hand:
Because your too busy to go to the craft store every week.

- A good idea book: We especially like this one, it’s made for 2 year olds, but I find that my older kids like the ideas as well.
