About this deal

In a humorous style, the book begins with that first mind-blowing day and addresses the issues unique to the first-time parent who stares at their newborn and thinks Where are the instructions?

I’m so glad I’ve read this book in my third trimester before the baby arrives- whether you can apply it all or an amount goes out the window- the reassurance of it right now is real. I understand that mothers are the ones who tend to take the lead on childcare, but it would be more forward thinking to aim the whole book at both parents. Easy to read and understand, it has a relaxed tone throughout and helps the reader to feel simultaneously well-informed and less overwhelmed.

This guide also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies. 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.

We are experiencing delays with deliveries to many countries, but in most cases local services have now resumed. Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead. As a health journalist and mother-of-three, Lucy Atkins is familiar with both the medical aspects of childbirth and baby development, and the reality of day-to-day life as an exhausted first-time mum or dad. In her feisty, humorous style, she begins with that first mind-blowing day and addresses the issues unique to the first-time parent who stares at their newborn and thinks Where are the instructions? Powdered formula is not sterile so 70°C water from the kettle needs to be added to it, not "cooled boiled water from kettle" and then warmed to body temperature.

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.
