We heard about this book from several friends and we decided to buy it. We really find it good and informative. It gives us a heads up on the changes that are yet to come. This gives us a change to focus on them :) It is really recommendable :)
This is based on a Dutch book called Oei, Ik Groei (oh I am growing) that was published in 1992. It was very popular in Holland at first because young unsure parents liked the certainty it seems to provide. But the book was soon debunked as junk science, was heavily criticized in the Dutch media, was widely rejected by parents, and disappeared from the bookshelves. Now an unscrupulous publisher has translated this nonsense and is cheating a new generation of unknowing first time parents. Scandalous and shameful. Do your baby a favour and put the money in their savings account instead.
