Publisher's Summary

The first three months of a newborn baby’s life offer new parents a unique opportunity to lay a solid and loving foundation that will last a lifetime. It is also when parents - whether first-time or not - need unfailing support to help them deal with the countless decisions they face every day.

You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn reveals my nurturing approach in calming the most unsettled baby and teaching them to self-settle and resettle. I also share advice on solving common feeding issues and managing time, relationships, and emotional demands in the weeks following birth. 

You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn is written for fatigued, time-poor parents. The details are clear and succinct. It is structured by topic rather than developmental stages, acknowledging that babies grow at different rates.

Reassuring without being prescriptive, it takes into account modern lifestyles and recognises that every baby - and every parent - is different.

Great bits of information

I thought the overall information was very valuable. The suggestions and tips were absolute gold and I have listened to it twice since we had two kids.

Some parts you have to skip as they are not relevant. Some parts are just listening to someone complain about their partner/support/situation rather than providing some useful questions or thoughts that a new parent needs to have before and after birth.

Insightful. Could do with accompanying PDF

This is a great book as it is very informative. We found it a little repetitive when talking about the self-soothing cycles. An accompanying PDF in this regard would have been helpful to visualise what was being read to us. At times, I found the flow of the narrative jerky and it is not clear when headings are being read out and new sections begin. Overall a very helpful book but, for the reasons above, I think this one would be better consumed in printed copy.
