A must have book for any new parents.
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, using bullet points, photographs and illustrations for quick reference. 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.
