5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant, 15 Feb 2013
I got my elder son one for his second birthday. Within weeks, he was scooting over a mile each way to nursery and back again. My younger son started to have a go on it, successfully, at around 14 months. He's now 21 months and can scoot and steer quite well. This scooter is without doubt the best thing I have ever bought my son. It is brilliantly designed, speeds up on-foot journey times no end, and encourages co-ordination, balance and exercise. I am such a fan that I am going to get one for my (39th!) birthday, and my second son will be getting one for his second birthday. I can't wait to go out scooting together! Just one note of caution: a couple of medical friends have commented that… Read more

How anyone thinks that this is an acceptable way to raise a baby, I simply do not understand. I can see the appeal to women who are used to routines and an organised life. However, the arrival of a baby is a time to forget all that and to tune in with the amazing little creature that's grown inside you for nine months and to be led by them. I didn't buy the book as I knew I'd hate it, but have read parts of it at friends' houses - so glad I didn't waste any money on it. I did all the things Gina tells you not to do: shared a bed with and had our son in our room for months, fed on demand etc. My son is a confident, bright boy (totally conversant by his second birthday and has only ever had… Read more
Three in a Bed: The Benefits of Sleeping with Your&hellip by Deborah Jackson

Like many other new mothers, I have ended up sharing a bed with my son (now 12 weeks) out of exhaustion in the middle of the night. And, like many other mothers, I find few things more wonderful than waking up next to him. It was fantastic to find a book which told me that it was beneficial to do this; I am at a loss as to why co-sleeping is quite so frowned upon, as it is a very natural thing to do.

That said, the book does go too far in places. Ideas such as the reason why the US and Russia are the most aggressive nations on earth (it's a little out-dated) is because it is in these countries where co-sleeping rates are lowest, demonstrate that the book's agenda is clear, and… Read more
