Babyproofing Your Marriage:

How to Laugh More, Argue Less, and Communicate Better as Your Family Grows
by Stacie Cockrell, Cathy O'Neill, and Julia Stone

Of all the baby preparation books out there, I highly recommend this book, which deals with all of the unanticipated chaos that a baby brings into your life. When a couple decides to have children, they may prepare themselves by reading up on all the latest childcare manuals and baby name books, but one area that some couples overlook is their marriage. According to the book, over 70% of couples who had children said that their satisfaction with their marriage had significantly declined over the first two years.

This book helps you learn how to adapt to the new role of parent, as well as keeping up the satisfaction with your marriage with special sections devoted to moms and dads. You will learn the downside of "keeping score" when it comes to chores and family responsibilities. Other sections help you deal with the onslaught of well-meaning relatives, how to deal with multiple children, and much more.
