Customer Review

on August 17, 2010
I referred to this book daily during the first 8-10 weeks of my baby's life, and at least weekly thereafter. It manages to be balanced in its parenting approach; rather than pushing you in one direction or another the authors explain the pros and cons of various things and leave you to make up your own mind. I particularly like the 'what's happening to mum' sections, which you don't get elsewhere. It's actually written by a paediatrician as well, so I feel happier accepting a lot of the advice than I would from a less qualified person.

The week by week format works brilliantly at first, but because it goes all the way to 6 months it's slightly less applicable by the end as developments become more varied in terms of when they occur. There is weaning advice from 17 weeks, but I don't think the authors do this to promote early weaning (they clearly state that latest advice is to wait until 6 months, and give you a checklist to go through before you consider solids), more to ensure that the book contains information on how to do it so that you still get the advice even though the book officially stops at 6 months.

I have way too many baby books but if I could only keep one this would be it.
