I began to read this in the last month of pregnancy as everything has suddenly become real and I realised I had NO CLUE what I was gonna do when my little person arrives. 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?

Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead. Baby Food Matters: What science says about how to give your child healthy eating habits for life by Dr Clare Llewellyn, Dr Hayley Syrad. It also has so much information for mothers, yet there are only tiny sections for fathers thrown in.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.

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. 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.

The edition I read it also very outdated (always refers to the partner as a “he” and assumes there is a partner) and has some incorrect information (such as old NHS guidelines). 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is that some of the information in the later chapters, particularly regards relationships and work, seems a little outdated or stereotyped. This guide also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies.
