About this deal

Yes, I still feel clueless in many ways, but I am starting to accept that that is just the way I am feeling in the face of starting life as a mum as I worry about blanking out everything I read once baby is here and I am sleep deprived. in addition it covers the relationship of the couple after birth and how dads can participate in baby's life and assist newly moms. These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby's life.

Forget unrealistic childcare manuals—this is the book new parents will really need to help cope brilliantly with the first chaotic days and months.It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby’s life. In particular I found the first couple of chapters, about looking after a newborn, very useful and reassuring, since I was clueless. In her feisty, humorous style, she begins with that first mind-blowing day and addresses the issues unique to the first-time parent who stares at their newborn and thinks Where are the instructions? Although I know these are the practicalities, it would be more readable if there were a better balance.

For me I found that this was sufficient in breast feeding and sleeping, but I wanted to read more on child-led weaning which it recommended). I began to read this in the last month of pregnancy as everything has suddenly become real and I realised I had NO CLUE what I was gonna do when my little person arrives. In a humorous style, the book begins with that first mind-blowing day and addresses the issues unique to the first-time parent who stares at their newborn and thinks Where are the instructions? I found I already knew most of what was being said though, and it was more a case of verifying what I already knew. New moms and dads will also learn about the baby's crying, feeding their child, the baby's physical and mental development, health considerations for baby and parent, the changing mother-father relationship, and coping with being at home and with going back to work.

I read the 2009 edition and my only criticism is that some of the information in the later chapters, particularly regards relationships and work, seems a little outdated or stereotyped. This guide also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies. Easy to read, like the realistic style and approach to 1st year of parenthood, lots of useful information and tips without getting too detailed but with lots of resources if you want to i. Covered a lot of the bases, found the bullet point lists of steps to do in certain situations (baby can't sleep, baby struggles breastfeeding, baby is crying) really helpful. i also like that it covers the growing/developing stage by trimester rather than week by week or month by month which prevents you from comparing your baby to average and statistics and let it grow/develop at it's own pace.

I read most of it and found the down to earth common sense advice and insight useful to a fist time mum. Cry - why your baby cries, what to do, why you'll want to cry, too * Eat -breastfeeding, supplemental feeding, moving to solids, nutrition * Grow - baby's physical and mental development * Play - yes, you two actually can have fun * Thrive - health considerations for baby and parent * Live - adapting to your new life, the changing mother-father relationship * Work - coping with being at home and with going back to work * Also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies. I found that I had to force myself to read it because every time I did it made me feel sad and overwhelmed. Baby Food Matters: What science says about how to give your child healthy eating habits for life by Dr Clare Llewellyn, Dr Hayley Syrad.

Contents the equipment and kit new parents really need, how to cope with the first few hours, coming home, bonding, how to survive the first few days, and sleeping. also it promotes a more relaxed and fun, for babies and parents, play-time approach rather than intellectual/over-stimulating one.
