About this deal

I read most of it and found the down to earth common sense advice and insight useful to a fist time mum.

Reading this I was able to find areas I wanted to delve into deeper which is why I feel that this is a great starting point for people to find areas they want to know more about. Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby's life. in addition it covers the relationship of the couple after birth and how dads can participate in baby's life and assist newly moms.

Contents the equipment and kit new parents really need, how to cope with the first few hours, coming home, bonding, how to survive the first few days, and sleeping.

The First-Time Parent is on your side, and reassures that you can cope brilliantly with your new baby and your new life. The edition I read it also very outdated (always refers to the partner as a “he” and assumes there is a partner) and has some incorrect information (such as old NHS guidelines).

It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby’s life.

also it promotes a more relaxed and fun, for babies and parents, play-time approach rather than intellectual/over-stimulating one.For me I found that this was sufficient in breast feeding and sleeping, but I wanted to read more on child-led weaning which it recommended). Baby Food Matters: What science says about how to give your child healthy eating habits for life by Dr Clare Llewellyn, Dr Hayley Syrad.

Lucy has been a first-time parent - as well as a second- and third-time one - and currently lives with her family in Boston, USA.

Her last novel, MAGPIE LANE, a literary mystery set in an Oxford College, was chosen as a Book of the Year by the Guardian, The Telegraph, Good Housekeeping magazine and Radio 4's Open Book. It also has so much information for mothers, yet there are only tiny sections for fathers thrown in. Although I know these are the practicalities, it would be more readable if there were a better balance.For all ebook purchases, you will be prompted to create an account or login with your existing HarperCollins username and password.
