Denise & Alan Fields are the country's best-known experts on baby gear. Featured as product gurus on NBC's Today Show, Good Morning America and the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Fields have been quoted in numerous publications such as the Wall Street Journal and Time Magazine. The New York Times called the Fields' book, Baby Bargains, "the bible for new parents."

As consumer advocates and authors, the Fields have spent the last 16 years researching and writing about getting the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to baby gear. Their best-selling book Baby Bargains has over 700,000 copies in print and features detailed reviews and ratings on cribs, car seats, strollers, high chairs, carriers and much more.

How do two mild-mannered folks from Boulder, CO become the country's go-to source for info on baby gear? The Fields started their focus on bargains with their best-selling book on weddings, BRIDAL BARGAINS. Following life's milestones and the birth of their first son, the Fields wrote BABY BARGAINS back in 1994.

The secret sauce to Fields success? An army of readers (moms and dads, grandparents and more) who post 1000 comments a day to the Fields' message boards. Harnessing that reader feedback, the Fields incorporate real world tips and their own first-hand inspections of baby gear at numerous trade shows to author the country's most authoritative guide on buying for baby.

The Fields are also the co-authors and publishers of the best-selling Baby 411 series, which includes Expecting 411, Baby 411 and Toddler 411.

  • Great advice!

    Great book! It's hard to keep it updated, I'm sure. But more than anything, it provides some great tools for you to learn what you should be looking for when it comes to researching products. Especially useful for first-time parents!

  • A "should have" for all soon-to-be moms

    I had an earlier edition of this book when I had my first child and thought it was life saving. Since then, I have reviewed and highlighted sections of subsequent editions for all the new moms in my life. I think this is a MUST HAVE book!

  • Great resource for all things baby

    This book is a great resource about all the baby products parents-to-be might be in the market to buy, from cribs and bedding to strollers, carriers, car seats, bouncers, diapers, baby food, etc. The book talks about what you really need and what's a waste of money, rates brands in each category, and makes a "good," "better," "best" recommendation for each. The reviews are thorough, frank, and objective (the authors—parents themselves—pride themselves on being independent and not taking any money to recommend products). I'm expecting my first baby and knew virtually nothing about baby products until I got this book. As a result, I'd been dragging my feet to start shopping because for a lot of products (e.g., cribs, strollers), there are a lot of brands, with a lot of features, so it was overwhelming. Since receiving the book, I've become more knowledgeable not only about the product categories, but brands themselves, and feel more confident and comfortable shopping. I highly recommend this book to parents-to-be or for anyone looking for a gift for parents-to-be.

  • Great book, HORRIBLE shipping

    The book itself is awesome. I would highly recommend this book for any new parent to be. The shipping through Overstock, however, was TERRIBLE. It took almost 2 weeks to receive the book. I should've just ordered it from Amazon.
