My friend swears by the 'Rough guide to babies' she has a 6 month old and says it has been invaluble and might have not survived without it! it's quite a good quick reference guide too.
I have just bought myself a copy online but it's not here yet... neither is my baby so although I have had a look at my friend's copy and found the quick reference layout very easy to follow, I can't personally vouch for the advise, but she has a very content baby and has not gone mad yet!!
I had one called something like the Best Friend's guide to babies, or something like that. It was American, so not that useful about healthcare etc, but good otherwise. Quite lighthearted but informative.
The best advice to give though is don't take any childcare books too seriously!
Forgot about Dr Sears. That book was my saviour - bought it when dd was about 3 weeks old... BUT then got a bit annoyed with it (bit cutesy and American) by the time she was 10mths or so. Has everything you asked for though...
Dr Sears The Baby Book definitely. His style can be annoyingly American but he's terribly good at reassuring that you are normal & helping you to follow your instincts. And "When Your Baby Cries" by Deborah Jackson - someone gave it to me when my daughter was 10 months but I wished I had it when she arrived. So much gentle common sense in such a small, easy to read book.
I loved (shoot me down) SOME ASPECTS of GF contented baby book. OK, it is a bit regimental with the routine BUT it had great tips on how important their naps were. All babies to a certain age, can't remember, probably 6 months, start getting tierd after 2 hours of being awake. That was the handiest bit of information I ever got. I had quite a few friends who continued to breast or bottle feed their babies every 2 hours because they thought they were hungry. In actual fact a baby can scream like they are being murdered because they are over tired. If your a new mum it is hard to tell what they are screaming for and it's not that unlike the 'im starving' cry! I found just knowing this bit of info a life saver. He quickly got into a great routine and sleeping pattern. Even now at 2 yrs 3mths he is upstairs in his cot for his 3 hour nap while I do lots of house work and such like, ahem ! There was loads of other tips when things started to worry me or go wrong, id go to my wee bible and 9 times out of 10, the answer was there and whatever was advised, I gave a shot and it worked. He is and was a very contented happy little baby.
