Foreword by Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones
The first three months of a newborn baby’s life offer new parents a unique opportunity to lay a solid and loving foundation that will last a lifetime. It is also when parents - whether first-time or not - need unfailing support to help them deal with the countless decisions they face every day.
You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn reveals my nurturing approach in calming the most unsettled baby and teaching them to self-settle and resettle. I also share advice on solving common feeding issues and managing time, relationships, and emotional demands in the weeks following birth.
You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn is written for fatigued, time-poor parents. The details are clear and succinct. It is structured by topic rather than developmental stages, acknowledging that babies grow at different rates.
Reassuring without being prescriptive, it takes into account modern lifestyles and recognises that every baby - and every parent - is different.
My favourite baby book! Three babies deep and I still find myself reaching for it. Full of practical tips, everything from breastfeeding positions to what to pack to go on holiday or how to structure your day.
This book is so practical and not overwhelming with large bodies of text. It’s so easy to pick up and put down and you can easily find information on each topic. I find the pictures really useful. Importantly its also non-judgemental.
