Of all the baby-raising books I bought when I was expecting, this has proved to be the most useful. It is authoritative - written by a paediatrician and paediatric nurse couple who are parents to 8 children, including a child with Down's syndrome - and therefore extra useful on symptoms and medical conditions and when you need to contact a doctor. It's approach is highly supportive of parents and children - it focuses on parents learning to get to know their particular child and parent to them in particular, rather than trying to prescribe a one-size-fits-all rigid formula for parenting (which can be very discouraging in other books - especially when you turn out to have a real baby, as opposed to a doll). It includes sections on breast feeding (very pro-breast feeding, but also explains formula and bottles in detail), bonding / attachment parenting, sleep, introduction of various foods, development stages and play, illnesses and injury. In short, after four years, this is the only book I refer to for baby issues.

This book is very well set out with easy to follow, useful, practical and up to date information. Provides many good ideas to help solve the everyday problems we have experienced with our baby. great for first time parents. Some good illustrations provided. Not a rigid program (like in some other books)Excellent section on breastfeeding and introducing foods for the first time. Section on skin conditions was also quite helpful for us. Very good over all.
