From the Publisher
'A great book for any first time parent.' Sarah Beeny, TV property expert and mother of four.
Practical, realistic advice from someone who’s been there (three times) this is the thinking person’s guide to the first year, helping you through day-to-day life as an exhausted parent, from how to change a nappy to ‘is baby yoga really worth the effort?’ First Time Parent covers all the basics – sleep, food, crying (you and your baby), health, relationships and work. Above all, it is on your side because most of the time the real expert is you. I wrote this book because I couldn’t take being patronised by paranoid baby guides pushing silly agendas. This is the book I wished I’d had first time around.
Lucy Atkins is a British author and journalist. Her acclaimed novels The Night Visitor (May 2017), The Other Child (2015), and The Missing One (2014). She has also written seven non-fiction books, two of which have won national awards. Many of her books are published internationally.
Lucy has a background in literary and feature journalism. After working at the Times Literary Supplement, she became a books critic for The Sunday Times and has written reviews and features for UK newspapers and magazines including The Guardian, The Times, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Psychologies, Red, and Woman & Home.
