I have bought this book for so many people. It is seriously the best book out there for mums with new babies. If I had my way I'd make sure every pregnant mum read it just before giving birth! It is packed with so much practical advice. I found most other parenting books for this age range (0-12 months) tended to give more general ideas, whereas Simone gives real life examples. As an Australian mum to 6 kids, Simone really gets that every kid is different, but she is still able to give general principles that should apply to all kids. It is broken up into sections for each age range so you don't feel like you need to read it all at once. I referred to it all through both my kids' first year of life. It's worth buying even if just for the suggested routine charts. These are absolute gold. I can't rave about this book enough. If you want to feel like you are in control as a mum (as opposed to just being subjected to the whims of your very cute but very non-compliant baby), get this book! The sooner the better!
This book gives a practical frame work for the first year of mothering. It teaches about feeding, sleeping, playtime and developing a flexible routinue to suit you and your baby. Simone has so much great advice to share and does so in an encouraging manner. I love that the book is broken down into age ranges so you can just read each section as you need it. I used this book for each of my 3 children and highly recommend it!
