Heidi Murkoff’s What to Expect has delivered again. Announcing the arrival of a brand-new member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year. The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 9.7 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums).
Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.

From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world. There’s a developmental time line of the second year plus special “milestone” boxes throughout that help parents keep track of their toddler’s development. Thinking of traveling with tot in tow? There’s a chapter for that, too.

    Like everyone else I got the wrong book when I downloaded. I contacted iTunes support by eMail, and it took 4 eMails before they even read my original eMail (they gave me canned responses about how to troubleshoot downloads and reinstall my iPad and computer). Finally they admitted their error and gave me a refund. I even called the publisher to tell them they had the wrong book on sale. Since then I have received at least 3 eMails a day from a support agent named "sugar" asking if my problem has been resolved. After replying to eMail after eMail with "You gave me the refund, but you continue to have the wrong book on sale, so no you haven't resolved the issue," I finally gave up and send one last eMail saying "You apparently will never resolve my issue with this sale, so please never eMail me again about this issue." Let's see if that finally stops the SPAM.
