Praise for CRIBSHEET and EXPECTING BETTER:

A revelation for curious mothers-to-be. --The New York Times

Gives moms-to-be a big helping of peace of mind! --Harvey Karp M.D., bestselling author of The Happiest Baby on the Block

It took someone as smart as Emily Oster to make it all this simple. She cuts through the thicket of anxiety and received wisdom, and gives us the facts.

Parenting can be fraught. Cribsheet aims to help parents do better. --The Economist

Both refreshing and useful. --LA Times

A huge relief...freeing. --The Washington Post

In my household, [Emily Oster] is the all-knowing Aunt we have never met. Parenting would be a lot more stressful without these books. --Adam Ozimek, Forbes
