This book could be your salvation!

A quote from the Daily Telegraph, but this cry could equally have come from the thousands of mothers who have put Gina Ford's kind but firm routines into practice and put some calm back into their lives. Sleep-starved nights, inconsolable crying, feeding on demand - stories that make the prospect of bringing a tiny baby home for the first time daunting for any proud new parent.

Fully updated and expanded in response to input from the members of her website, The New Contented Little Baby Book gives reassuring and practical advice to new parents that works from one of the UK's most respected and most talked about maternity nurses.

Her secret is simple and amazing - a strategy developed through years of research and experience.

When put into practice, 'Gina babies':

  • Sleep through the night from an early age

  • Feed regularly and well from either breast or bottle

  • Are less likely to suffer from colic

  • And parents are calm and contented too!

      Comments about The New Contented Little Baby Book:

      I rrecieved this book as a gift and it helped immensely in the early days and was my salvation. I referred to it again for my second child and it was just as handy in helping with establishing a routine, tips and information. I've just purchased it to give to a friend who is expecting her second and wanted this book.

          "Gina Ford is the Delia Smith of parenting...while Delia tells you how to make the perfect omelette, Gina Ford in her baby-care manual The Contented Little Baby Book, draws on 30 years' experience to tell you how to nurture the perfectly happy baby." YOU Magazine "For me she was an absolute godsend." -- Kate Winslet "It is hard to overestimate the good she has done...How to reward this great benefactor of mankind?...My wife takes the view that only sainthood will do." Peter Osborne, Political Editor, The Spectator "I devoured it (Contented Little Baby Book) in one sitting. It was hilarious. The claim that a baby of five months could be trained to sleep from 7am to 7pm made me laugh out loud. Little did I realise that this was the start of my conversion to the gospel according to St Gina. That Gina Ford would soon acquire an almost divine status in my life...I look back on my BGE (Before Gina Era) and think of how many of my babies has cried and cried as I ever more desperately struggled to get them to sleep...My only regret, of course, is that Gina did not write her book years ago, when my older children were born. I look in the mirror and wonder what a difference that would have made to the bags under my eyes. If motherhood had always been as easy as it seems this time, I might not have had five children - but 10. Maybe Ruth Kelly's secrets is that she has a copy of St Gina." -- Martine Oborne Evening Standard "This book could be your salvation!" The Daily Telegraph
