Yes I recommend


I would recommend this to any first time parent to look at the book to find many answers to the many questions you have as a new parent.



The only book a mum-to-be needs


I used this book as my bible when pregnant with my babies. You can read from cover to cover, or just use as an encyclopedia for when you have a question. Trustworthy, reliable advice that will give you every answer you need for having a baby.

so good





Excellent, to the point, common sense


Overall great advice and easy to read and follow



So reassuring


This book gives practical down to earth advice and information on everything you need to know about your new baby - just as the jacket says. I just wish I'd got it and read some BEFORE my baby actually arrived. That would have put my mind at ease alot earlier.
