Everything you need to know about caring for your new baby, from feeding to sleeping and everything in between - every parent's new best friend.

'Cath Curtin is the newborn baby guru! A calming voice, a gentle hand and a wealth of knowledge during one of the most incredible but terrifying times of your life - new parenthood. To have Cath's support after the birth of my first son was invaluable and I don't know how I would have done it without her!' Rebecca Judd

Cathryn Curtin has delivered more than 10,000 babies over the last 40 years, so she understands how the first six weeks of a baby's life are vital for establishing habits that help create a healthy, happy routine for your baby and a loving lifelong bond between you and your child.

In this practical and easy-to-use guide, Midwife Cath covers all aspects of a newborn's first weeks, from caring for your baby to coping with the sudden emotional and physical changes of new parenthood. By following her brilliant bath, bottle and bed routine, you'll enjoy a deep sleep for up to five hours in these demanding early weeks while your partner has some precious one-on-one time with your child.

These first weeks of a baby's life can be a challenge for any new parent. Midwife Cath's invaluable experience and wisdom will guide you through them as well as help you establish a routine that will ensure a healthier, happier baby and better-rested and more confident parents.

    Comments about The First Six Weeks:

    Excellent advice on routines for women about to become mothers for the first time or subsequent newborns; and great for the partners to read too. Full of practical, hands on advice and structure for settling newborns. Excellent advice on mixed bottle and breast feeding which is hard to come by these days even though it's so common to combination feed.

            Great information and advice, especially for first-time parents. Gives recommendations for newborn feeding and sleep routines but is less strictly structured than other texts like Save Our Sleep. References and info are Australian.
