I just wanted a straightforward, preferably British, book with all the basics and without an agenda to help us get to grips with having our first child as we knew nothing! It was surprisingly difficult to find a book that met all those criteria, but this is it. Things like parenting styles and whether or not to breastfeed are covered from multiple perspectives with a "see what works for you" approach. My mother (who had two kids) has been reading it and says even she's learnt things to prepare her from grand-parenthood.

My daughter followed her favourite pregnancy bible with this Babycare Bible and has found it a godsend. Any little queries or big concerns are answered in a very straightforward way. It has given confidence and peace of mind. Very well worth buying.

Great gift especially for 1st time mums. Good references from birth to toddler. Plenty of ideas to try or discard if they do not suit you and your little one. This book seems to give lots of advice ,but does not patronise parents.

I bought this book as a present for my daughter, who is having her first baby and she was thrilled with it. The book is excellently presented with everything you need to know about caring for your newborn and young children. I would definitely recommend it to all mums!

Ok for day to day parenting but not for any problems. Very briefly touches on most but no real details. My baby had bad reflux which is briefly mentioned but no help. Often find myself turning to google still

I bought the 'Your Pregnancy Bible' and used it a lot during my pregnancy for advice and to further fuel my excitement with respect to my baby's development at each stage etc. I really loved it and found it useful. I have to say I have not been so impressed with 'Your Babycare Bible'. I am aware that it is simply not possible to have one tome which covers all you might need to know about the first year of your child's life but this book doesn't even come close. There are a number of good sections in the book, but I particularly wanted a book to refer to when I had health worries about my baby and needed to know which issues required further medical advice and which were common and nothing to worry about. This section is simply not detailed enough. As a reusable nappy user, I also found the section on choosing between reusable and disposable nappies completely infuriating as the advice given is out of date and ill-informed.

In summation this book is ok for a flick through on general issues but don't expect too much from it.
