Some useful information but not for anxious mums

I see this more as a reference guide to read as your baby reaches each week, rather than a book to inform you during pregnancy. Overall some useful practical guidance, but it’s peppered with lots of ‘don’t do X or your baby could hurt themselves/suffocate/die’ which I found quite shocking. Would not recommend for any anxious mums out there.

Very useful information!

I listened while pregnant then listened to each section again once baby was here. It was SUPER useful! It gave me more confidence as a first time mum and now we have a very happy healthy baby :-)

Clear and short guidance

Great book although the part of sleep training is tough but authors pointed out that we can choose to do it or not.

Great for new parent

Being a new parent is daunting. I listened to this book week by week as my baby grew. It breaks down what to expect each week, giving advice on sleep, feeding, development and more. I found it really helpful particularly during lockdown. Most importantly I found it reassuring knowing what was happening was normal.
