About this deal

I read most of it and found the down to earth common sense advice and insight useful to a fist time mum.

I found that I had to force myself to read it because every time I did it made me feel sad and overwhelmed. Baby Food Matters: What science says about how to give your child healthy eating habits for life by Dr Clare Llewellyn, Dr Hayley Syrad. 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is that some of the information in the later chapters, particularly regards relationships and work, seems a little outdated or stereotyped. Yes, I still feel clueless in many ways, but I am starting to accept that that is just the way I am feeling in the face of starting life as a mum as I worry about blanking out everything I read once baby is here and I am sleep deprived. 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.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? It is accepted by you that Daunt Books has no control over additional charges in relation to customs clearance. Forget unrealistic childcare manuals – this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead.

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

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. Easy to read, like the realistic style and approach to 1st year of parenthood, lots of useful information and tips without getting too detailed but with lots of resources if you want to i. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby's life.

This guide also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies.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. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby’s life.
