Asking for recommendations on the best books you've read about the early days of having a baby? What are your must-have reads?

If you're planning on breastfeeding, The Womanly Art Of Breastfeeding is excellent. The book BabyCalm is a very good insight into why babies are the way they are. I would avoid like the Plague any book that says 'you must do X then your baby will do Y' & doesn't treat your baby as an individual (ie most books.)

I read baby Calm by Caroline Deacon too before having dc2. Really wish I'd read it before having dc1!
