I read the 2009 edition and my only criticism is that some of the information in the later chapters, particularly regards relationships and work, seems a little outdated or stereotyped.

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. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby’s life. Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead.For me I found that this was sufficient in breast feeding and sleeping, but I wanted to read more on child-led weaning which it recommended). I found that I had to force myself to read it because every time I did it made me feel sad and overwhelmed. For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. 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. i also like that it covers the growing/developing stage by trimester rather than week by week or month by month which prevents you from comparing your baby to average and statistics and let it grow/develop at it's own pace.

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 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 addition it covers the relationship of the couple after birth and how dads can participate in baby's life and assist newly moms.

Easy to read and understand, it has a relaxed tone throughout and helps the reader to feel simultaneously well-informed and less overwhelmed. It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). The First-Time Parent is on your side, and reassures that you can cope brilliantly with your new baby and your new life. New moms and dads will also learn about the baby's crying, feeding their child, the baby's physical and mental development, health considerations for baby and parent, the changing mother-father relationship, and coping with being at home and with going back to work.

I'm unsure why mothers should read the entire book while fathers only read the snippets for them at the end of chapters. 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.
