Don't get swayed by unfair 1 star reviews!!
on 21 September 2016
I feel obliged to write a review as I am shocked at the recent on-line FB campaign against this book which has suggested for many people to write a bad review here when they haven't actually read/seen the book due to 2 highlighted pages offering advice on controlled crying (which by the way it doesn't advocate but certainly provides guidance for any parents at their wits end as a last resort option from 5+ months!!). I was given this book whilst pregnant with my 1st child and found the short weekly chapters really helpful as to what to expect for baby and me over the first six months. It gave me an informed and non-biased/judgmental approach to parenting, whilst instilling confidence in my own instincts and was delivered in a way to cater for Mum's wellbeing as well as babies wellbeing (equally important for a thriving baby/family) . Following the birth of my 2nd child I still refer to it from now and then as I simply haven't got the time to pour over books like I did with my 1st pregnancy & I'm ultimately a more relaxed and experienced Mummy! I would recommend this reference book to any new Mummy, like all advice take it with a 'pinch of salt' as you will learn quickly what works best for you, your baby and your family!!
Good Luck :)
