Great buy for first time Mums ....,
This review is from: Secrets Of The Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect and Communicate with your Baby (Paperback)
This book is wonderful, being a first time mum I was nervous with the responsibility of a new baby. Tracey has a lot of empathy for new mums with a lot of emphasis on looking after yourself and giving yourself time out as well as looking after your new baby.
A lot of this book is straight forward common sense, but Tracey teaches you to take a step back and to relax when dealing with your newborn. (Not so easy when the baby is crying!). The part of understanding different crying was great as there are some not so obvious ones i.e. when they are bored or over stimulated. The section on reading body language was good as well because
its a hidden language which is easy to read after a while.
Everyone says what a "good" baby I have but I put her calmness and happyness down to reading this book and learning the secrets
to communicate with my baby.
Although this book says have a calm, confident baby I think this will apply to you as a Mum after you read it. Great for first time Mums. Best to read it before the arrival though!
