OK that's a bit dramatic. My son was born in the Mater hospital in Belfast, in 1975. I was literally the only woman in the hospital who was breast=feeding. (PLease bear in mind that our home had no hot water and no bathroom). Thanks to Dr Spock, I learned how to fit (terry) nappies, and breast feed successfully. He saw us through all the minor - and some major - childhood dramas. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

I used this almost 45 years ago as a reference for my two boys up till about the age of 10 and now my daughters-in-law use it for their children. Visiting over the festive season I noted the book was on the coffee table and had obviously been in use!

I've no doubt this book will prove an invaluable resource, but the actual quality of the book is terrible. The pages are wafer thin and the whole book could do with being about 50% larger in size. Can't see it lasting very long.

An all-time classic with appropriate updates, a great guide for first-time mums as well as the more experienced ones. A book that will be thumbed through for the entire growing-up cycles of your child. Great reading.

Bought for daughter as we used it for our children. As ever, this updated version is great for reference when you have a concern or issue and gives good advise and re-assurance

I gave it to my daughter because I used it when she was a baby. I think it worked, my granddaughter agrees!

I bought this book for my daughter, who is expecting our first grandchild, because an earlier edition had been our sole source of guidance when she was born in Fiji, far away from the support of grandparents or even a fully developed medical support network.
Re-reading some of the content I am pleased to note that the same 'common sense' attitude that supports a parent's instincts still pervades the book.
If, like my wife and I, anyone was living on a desert island with a new baby for the following 5 years this is the only book they should need.

great value price for a classic child care/development book. I first came accross this book when my first child was 2yrs old and found it informative and supportive. It is a classic and offers insight/advice re parenting for all ages of children but with more emphasis on the early years. Accessible and not too much jargon. V. Good condition and quick delivery - reasonable postage costs.
