Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Baby Book: How to Enjoy Year One (Paperback)
As a first time mum, I bought quite a few books to help me understand how to look after my baby. She came home after 4 weeks in hospital, so I was really daunted, but Rachel's book was the only one that was FLEXIBLE enough to work for a baby who wasn't quite ready to go like clockwork! We tried a couple of other methods and we had barely finished one feed before it was time for the next - not with this approach!
I was both breast and bottle feeding and was able to get her happy and contented really quickly! I like the fact that its recommended to feed her by a certain time, but not rigid ie. no telling you what to do at 2.04pm !!
My baby is thriving on Rachel's way! I'm sure that there will be challenges ahead but the flexibility and the simplicity are a godsend when you're sleep deprived and new to all this! Yes, the spiritual bit may not be to everyone's taste but her approach works wonders.
Even my husband is happy with the approach and he thought all baby books are mumbo-jumbo! Buy this book - I can't recommend it enough.
