Practical advice for parents of a newborn


This book gives an informed opinion and practical advice on many aspects relating to sleep and feeding of a new baby. It is easy to read, and offers advice in a non judgmental manner. I wish I had read this prior to becoming a parent, as the first few weeks with a newborn baby may have been easier on all of us.


Great book informative and interesting read.


Must read for anyone with a newborn or expecting. Surprisingly entertaining to read as well as full of essential information. Written by a doctor who has experienced everything to do with newborns.

Avoid a discontented little baby!


I bought this for my pregnant grand-daughter and read it over the week-end before giving it to her. I was delighted with the prospect that she would find the advice liberating; allowing her to choose, without guilt, the style of management of her newborn that would instil confidence in both mother and child. "The crying weeks" are discussed as normal but challenging for first time mums particularly. The options provided are practical and based on professional experience. A 'must read' for both parents and all who assist in caring for the precious new life.
