About the book

No matter how much you long for and plan for a baby, no one is quite prepared for the impact their new arrival has on their life. Babies have a habit of not behaving the way the textbooks say they should; this book tells you what you can REALLY expect in the first three months. The New Parents’ Survival Guide is packed with practical advice and bite-sized tips on how to deal with common problems you are likely to encounter, including how to:

  • Care for your newborn
  • Solve the breast versus bottle dilemma
  • Overcome breastfeeding woes
  • Calm your crying baby
  • Solve sleep issues
  • Manage minor ailments
  • Take good care of yourself
