Product Description



Your Baby Week By Week is a brilliant handbook for new mums. Small babies take up lots of time, particularly in the first six months, so the bite-sized approach to topics such as crying, feeding, sleeping and weaning is perfect for helping mums through all the challenges of the early days and inspiring them to feel confident.

Everyone tells you that babies don't come with a manual. Well, maybe they're wrong because here it is. We've written Your Baby Week by Week to gently guide you through the incredible first six months of your baby's life. We aim to hold your hand during those stressful times when every cry will set your heart racing, and every snuffle send you running to the doctor.

Of course, we understand that parents are hungry for facts about their newborns - why are they awake most of the night, is their poo normal, and are they feeding properly? And yet we also realise how exhausted you'll be feeling. Even finding time to eat breakfast can be a struggle, so doing in-depth research on jaundice is the last thing you'll feel like. This is why we've given you all the facts you'll need for each week in the first six months of your baby's life and presented them in a simple, easy-to-follow format. Each chapter is broken into clear sections covering a full range of practical issues, from sleeping and crying, to nappies and when to call a doctor.

Beginning with week 0 when your baby is first born, we explain everything from how many wet nappies you can expect over 24 hours to how long your baby might sleep and cry for. We've tried to describe every possible event that can occur in that first week so have included detailed information about your midwife's visits, how to spot if your baby is dehydrated, and whether he is feeding properly. We've even put in a `What's happening to mum' section which tells you, among other things, which day the baby blues are likely to kick in. This comprehensive detail continues throughout the book and each chapter tells you what you need to know for a particular week.

You'll notice that we always refer to the baby in the book as `he'. This is simply because we, the authors, have five children between us, four of which are boys. We could just as easily have said `she' and probably would have done if we'd had more daughters.

We know that small groups of mums with babies the same age gather up and down the country earnestly comparing notes about their tots. So we've given this book the reassuring voice of a good friend who is also an experienced mother, a consultant paediatrician, and just happens to have a baby who was born in the same week as yours.
