Parent Reviews and Comments

While some of the information in this book is great, other parts are quite dated and not in line with current Australian guidelines for infant care. I believe there are better parenting books out there! 


I bought this book after using what to expect when you are pregnant as my pregnancy bible. 

I found this book so fantastic! Very easy to read and I personally find that it answers all the questions you come across with your young baby. I am constantly refering back to this book and finding the answers i need.

I really recommend this book for new mums and think its a must have.

This book along with What to expect when you Expecting are what helped get me through pregnancy and the first year.
It doesn't go into too much depth about sleeping and routines however covers everything else in a good amount of detail.
This book is packed full of information from the right foods - What to do if your baby is sick. I recommend this book to anyone who has a baby 0 - 1 years old.

I was given this as a gift and told that it would come in handy. This book has been a great reference guide for a first time mum like myself. Like the authors pregancy book (What to Expect When Your Expecting), the book is mainly divided into months where common questions associated with that month are answered. Also addresses common ailments etc. 

Great book, and I'd highly recommend it.  


I love this book.  Anything you want to know about is in here!  A great index and easy to follow information including identifying sickness.

Can't praise this book highly enough!
