/u/ThanksForStoppingBy mentioned Cribsheet. Here's the conclusion of the food chapter:

> Early exposure to allergens reduces incidences of food allergies.

> Kids take time to get used to new flavors, so it is valuable to keep trying a food even if they reject it at first, and early exposure to varying flavors increases acceptance.

> There is not much evidence behind the traditional food-introduction recommendations; no need to do rice cereal first if you do not want to.

> Baby-led weaning doesn’t have magical properties (at least not based on what we know now), but there is also no reason not to do it if you want to.

> Vitamin D supplementation is reasonable, but don’t freak out about missing a day here and there.

Cribsheets is a very helpful parenting book

The book cribsheets by Emily Ostler goes into the data on a lot of parenting issues including breastfeeding. A lot of the benefits they claim that breastfeeding gives are actually not backed by good studies. It helped me see that the whole breast is best is over exaggerated and that fed is what really is best.

Another vote for both of the Emily Oster books, and the best practical book I've read is Heading Home with Your Newborn. Also this one's not a pregnancy book but I would strongly recommend How to Talk so Little Kids Will Listen if you're at all scared of the toddler through kinder stage. It's an entertaining read that aligns well with developmental psychology and has all these really funny real life examples of using the strategies from the book.

If I had to only pick a handful, I'd pick those.

I also liked the Ina May book which people will recommend a lot, but keep in mind it really is exclusively about childbirth and it's a bit crunchier than the average (though this pertains to the birth stories included more than Ina May's actual writing IMO). There's a good interview with her on the Longest Shortest Time podcast that addresses some of the things I felt the book could have benefited from stating outright to avoid sounding a little preachy at times.

If you're looking for like a detailed read that starts with absolute basics that would be especially good for anyone who hasn't researched much on pregnancy before, I would recommend Pregnancy, Childbirth, and the Newborn: The Complete Guide. It's as thick as a textbook but it doesn't read like one. They have a page in most sections directly speaking to partners as well, which is neat.

They're two different books of hers that she talked about in a podcast I love.

Cribsheet is about raising a healthy human puppy and Expecting Better is about the actual pregnancy itself and all the conventional wisdom that doesn't seem to be backed up by any hard data.

Oof, no. Not really. I stuck around TFAB for a reason - out there is colder, and even stranger. Some FAM people are very concerned about period consistency. Babycenter is ancient and overly optimistic. "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" is the lengthier, rantier, guide to learning all the fertility awareness method basics, but the fertility friend charting course is free, convenient, and teaches you all you really need to know.

I did eventually get lucky and am now a parent myself, but there is a veritable cacophony of advice for new parents and most of it is stressful garbage or smug asshattery. Everybody is still trying to sell you stuff, whether it is predatory sleep consultants or organic premade baby food delivery. Shoot me.

The humor on the ugly volvo resonates with me, particularly this one. I also occasionally link people who are on the fence about kids to this gem.

McSweeney's has some great breastfeeding... tips? Advice? Unsure.

Emily Oster is everybody's favourite economist because of "Expecting Better", and she recently published a book on baby stuff.

I've been looking for the mom version of this column, but from what I can tell it does not exist. Haha.

It's also not rocket science. If you are looking after yourself, and doing your best to be the best person you can be... that is really huge. Yes, it's good modelling for children down the line, but looking out for yourself through medical problems (as you probably know) is really tough! Cultivating patience, kindness, gratitude - these things deserve their own mention, since they do generally improve quality of life.

If you find anything you really like, let me know! I'm curious. :)

Of course!!!! That’s how it is with most of the data on what to do/not do during pregnancy. I recommend Crib Sheet by Emily Oster
