Parenting books or DVDS? Alisonmarie Due December 24; Glendale, Arizona 35 posts
16th Oct '12

I'm 30 weeks pregnant and I've been really nervous about almost everything! I really don't want to be a bad Mom.
It's my first child and I'm also only 17.
Me and my boyfriend want to be fully prepared for this baby. We don't have much experience with children ( especially not babies! ) and want to learn as much as we can to be prepared.
Anyone know of any good parenting books or DVD's? Maybe both?
I'd appreciate the help! Thanks :D

What do you want to know? When I was 16 I was worried but there is no manual for babies. LOL

HMM, "What to expect when your expecting" is a good one. I think I got that one when I was 16. But if you have facebook there is a ton of pregnancy support sites that are free and can give you SOOOO much information.

Your welcome. Plus there is an amazing page called world midwives I am part of on facebook. You can ask ANY question. There is not such thing as TMI. I have been asked everything and seen it all. Good luck hun.

Pretty much just looking around on baby gaga helped me more than any class or book did. Here is where you can start. Most will come with your own intuitions.

One of the best parenting books I've read so far is Kids Are Worth It by Barbara Coloroso.
