Review

'The popular Radio 2 presenter and author of the entertaining Imperfectly Natural Woman with a holistic but non-precious guide for imperfectly natural parents who would like to raise perfectly organic babies (ie most parents)' (THE BOOKSELLER )

'The appeal of Janey's Imperfectly Natural series is that she emphasises that we're only human, so going natural in an imperfect way is the best way to face the task ahead' (JUNIOR )

'A woman after our own heart. Read more of her down-to-earth advice in The Imperfectly Natural Baby and Toddler' (GREEN PARENT )

From the Author

I want every parent to reclaim their most important inherit quality - their intuition. Too many experts tell us we must follow routines, spend a fortune in money and gadgets. I'm no earth mother knitting my own yoghurt and I'm certainly not very green but when I had my first child 8 years ago I realised I wanted to leave behind a bit of the planet. I'll share all my recommendations for everything you'll need and want,helping you to save your health, your money and do your bit for the environment in the process. Everything from eco-nappies through to funky nursing necklaces.

If I'd had this before I had my children, I probably wouldn't have bothered to buy anything else. I've read it from cover to cover in one day & it's fabulous. Everything you need to know to get you started on the route to natural parenting, and plenty of information for those of us a little further down the track. All backed up with plenty of common sense & rooted in the real world.

Buy the book & come join the Imperfectly Natural forum.

Just what we need.

A book with all the tips you need for bringing baby into the world without commercially produced toiletries and un-necessary chemicals.

I would advise anyone who may be pregnant, or thinking of having a baby to at least give this more natural way of thinking and living a chance.

A great read and I look forward to the next one!!!!

As a midwife and mother, specialising in breastfeeding and baby skincare issues I am delighted to recommend this book as an excellent resource for new parents. It is not only packed with common sense tips and advice for would be green-parents but it is realistic without being a battle cry and user-friendly to boot.

Having been given "imperfectly natural women" for christmas, I've been looking forward to reading this book.I loved Janey's first book and this one is a definate must have for anyone with children who would like to try and lead a more natural life. As a mother to three young boys, I love the ideas and suggestions that Janey offers. It's a great read and has become my favourite breastfeeding companion (as well as the baby of course!) Love the forum too! Saving loads on my shopping bills thanks to all the great tips! Thanks Janey!

This is the second of Janey Lee Grace's 'Imperfectly natural' books I've read.

If you're a light green mother to be and want the best for your baby, but don't know which way to turn for advice, this could be the book you've been waiting for.

When I had my daughter, there weren't many books available on this topic, but I think Janey's Imperfectly Natural baby and toddler would have been welcome reading in my home in the early days.

There is no preaching and no radical, 'way out' ideas that put you off for life. There is just 200 pages of sound advice which talks you through the many options that parents, wanting to adopt a more natural lifestyle, might consider.

Janey has four children, so can speak with authority about how individual children are! The book is a collection of tips for parents who want to live as holistically as they can while bringing up babies and young children.

Janey talks about life from the moment your baby is in your arms. I wish I'd had the advise to rest and let people pamper me in the early days. Instead I thought I could be supermum - what a mistake that was! Janey covers PND and gives lots of suggestions for things to do other than take medication. She advocates drugs as an absolute last resort and covers other ideas that can be just as effective.

Throughout Imperfectly natural baby and toddler, all the usual confusing decisions are covered such as vaccinations, washable or disposable nappies, breast feeding, dummies, weaning and health care.

Find out which vegetable leaf will help ease mastitis and what different brands of 'eco nappies' are now available.

You'll find home remedies for treating minor ailments such as colic, earache, tummy upsets and eczema.

As a father of three, I wish I had had this book the first time around. It gives a lot of sensible and practical suggestions as to how to bring up your child in a natural a way as possible, without the fear and dictatorship I have seen in some other guides. It was also good to find out about the experiences of other parents who are facing similar difficulties

A great resource for anyone looking for a more holistic approach to parenting. Loads of sympathetic advice and tips on everything from breastfeeding, sleeping, and parenting in general - an ideal gift for any first, second or any-other time parent.

A brilliant book - Imperfectly Natural Woman has been a favourite since my mum gave me a copy last year and I have been looking forward to the publication of this one ever since!

I love the way the author shares her thoughts & ideas with the reader. Unlike other reference books this is written in a sensitive & caring way.You are not bombarded with medical or scientific text.It is just from a mothers point of view & I really like that.There are so many tips in it that make real sense.I felt really inspired reading it & will make good use of the links at the back of the book.

The layout is really nice & the pictures throughout are beautiful.

I look forward to another book in the 'Imperfectly Natural' series.
