Book Description

As babies grow, so their routines and patterns change. In The Contented Toddler Years Gina addresses the many changes in sleeping and feeding habits that arise during the second and third year. She offers invaluable advice and insight into these crucial stages of a child's development, from walking and talking, to teething and potty training and also shows you how to:

-deal with tantrums, food refusal and sibling jealousy
-prepare for the arrival of a second baby, including how to cope physically, emotionally and financially, and how to adapt her routines when caring for a baby and toddler
-make teeth-cleaning fun and put an end to habits such as thumb-sucking, nail-biting and eating dirt
-decide what type of childcare is best for you and your toddler

Gina's advice is derived from hands-on experience of dealing with children. Parents can be confident that her techniques, which have been tried and tested many times and have proved successful with many different children, can also work for them. She has listened to the concerns of thousands of parents via her consultations and website.

Reassuring and down-to-earth, parents will find Gina's advice can help make the passage from contented baby to confident child a happy and stress-free experience for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have ... 17 July 2013
By Jacks
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book as I liked the 'one week potty training for boys'. Simple direction without being a dictator. I have found the book very helpful. Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book. 2 Oct. 2015
By Angela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've only read half the book, and so far have found it really helpful in working through my 2 year olds defiance. I am really looking forward to finishing it and so far it has given me confidence in dealing with my strong willed daughter. Definitely recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gives bad advice. 21 Aug. 2014
By Aztec
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Suggests you lock your toddler in their room if they're naughty! There I was thinking the bedroom was a place of calm and rest. A few other highly suspect suggestions meant that I didn't even bother finishing the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful and informative 23 Aug. 2006
Format:Paperback
Having followed the routines in the Contented Little Baby Book, I welcomed Gina Ford's "sequel"! My daughter continues to thrive and is happy and content (as am I!).
This book has useful chapters on toddler behaviour and having a second child. A must if you find Gina's advice helpful or if you just need that extra help with the "terrible twos"!

This book is cruel... Locking a child in there room as punishment is ridiculous

A toddler expressing herself is not 'defiance'.
Locking someone in their room is no way to build a trusting relationship. Gina Ford is entirely interested in the convenience of the parents and not in the long-term happiness of the child. Appalling.
