4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By William Head on 18 Aug. 2010
Format: Paperback
As a first time parent, you are bombarded with a myriad of well-intended advice from medical professionals, other parents, your own parents and the dreaded Mother-in-Law.... Some of this advice is good, some, however, is out-dated, unhelpful or lets face it, useless. Every parent will have encountered interference, which is basically advice that was never needed in the first place. You can be left feeling overwhelmed, or even worse, undermined.

What this book offers is a concise A to Z of pretty much everything you may encounter with your baby and toddler. The advice is clear, concise, and you are left knowing when to worry and when not to worry about illnesses etc. There are detailed sections on the four main battles parents will face in the first three years: breast feeding, sleeping, eating and toileting. No messing about, the book delivers realistic, common sense advice, that is not patronising.

I really found this book to be a great help. The only tiny criticism I would level is that it's a pity there isn't a version for the UK market, as you have to get around some of the American terms and disregard the section for say Chicken Pox, as the UK doesn't routinely provide a vaccine against it.

I bought this book with Toddler Taming by Christopher Green. Together they have been excellent, and I have no need for any other book surrounding parenting issues. Cohen is based in America, while Green is based in Australia - but don't let that put British parents off - they are both excellent!

Really like this book. Bought after reading French Children Don't Throw Food and Michel Cohen being mentioned as the 'go to' paediatrician in New York and as a first time Mum I found this book very reassuring. Would highly recommend

A laid back, yet no nonsense approach to child rearing. Useful to dip into for advice on specific issues, including feeding, sleeping, and toddler tantrums!
