Finally! A gem of sense.
on 1 October 2012
This book is a gem!
When I was pregnant I was nervous about what to do and how. I bought a baby book by a different author, misled by the title into thinking it would teach me how to make my child happy. I remember my husband commenting on my contorted facial expressions when I read about bizarre rituals where the day was broken into 20 minute slots dictating how long I bath my baby, how much milk I should express and when, when I eat my breakfast, and specifically what I must eat.
Unsurprisingly it turned out the author of that book had never had children. It went in the bin, so no one else could read it.
Baby Calm is the delightful antidote (written by a mother of four) and I so wish it had been published 6 years earlier!
Every parent should read this book if they want sensible advise on how to deal with becoming a parent and the needs of a newborn, while maintaining their own calm and sanity,
If you're going to be a parent, you need this.
