I was very happy to get a year of American Baby for free, I am not sure if the magazine is always free, or if this was a special offer my doctor passed along to me, either way this is a cute, informative and entertaining magazine.
I do think it is a little too short in content, if I were paying like $20 for a year I might be disappointed, but at the price, or better put, lack of a price, I am quite happy to recieve this magazine once a month.
As i am pregnant with my first child, I am always happy to learn anything I can about babies. It is not that I have never been around little ones before, I am merely out of practice as my closest nephews and neice are all teenagers now.
My husband also gets a kick out of American Baby magazine. Every month when he sits down for a free moments to read it he gushes "Ahww... we are going to have one of these cute little things!"
The magazine offers good advice on dealing with parenting issues such as temper tantrums, bad manners and getting baby to fall asleep on its own.
I am on my 3rd free issue, and I learn something with every issue . I also get to keep up with whats new in terms of baby gear and trends.
I would recommend other parents or parents to be look into scoring a free subscription of this one for their own use and entertainment, I know we are saving our issues for future reference!
