Parent Reviews and Comments
A very well written guide to parenting. Sometimes light on the details but excellent for those who dont want an encyclopedia and need entertaining writing styles to hold their attention. Kaz Cooke is very non judgemental and always makes you feel better about parenting, and manages as always to sneak in a few good laughs along the way.
i had to get this as i loved up the duff and this didnt disapoint! covers everything and is entertaing and easy to read.
i was given this book by a friend when baby was a few weeks old! It is very much like her pregnancy book -Up the Duff-, funny, spot on and tells it like it is! Interesting. i like that comments from real life mums are scattered throughout the book. made me fell normal to know that others have and are going through the same thing as me! lots of information in it.

I read this straight after I read Up The Duff and I enjoyed both immensely.

A well written, common sense guide to parenting with great tips from other mothers and without a hint of judgement or know-it-all-ism.  I refer back to it often when dealing with both my infant and my toddler on a range of issues from breastfeeding, solids, games to play and development.

A great read and a valuable book for any parent.
