My daughter is only 9 weeks old and I constantly refer back to this book for guidance and peace of mind. The humour with which it is written also encourages you to laugh at yourself as you relate to the issues it covers.
I love it and have already recommended it to some of my friends who are expecting their first baby!
Because some of us do need a step by step photo guide to putting on a nappy.
4stars because some more practical things are not very clear.
