Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead.As a health journalist and mother-of-three, Lucy Atkins is familiar with both the medical aspects of childbirth and baby development, and the reality of day-to-day life as an exhausted first-time mum or dad. 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?"Anticipating the questions and concerns of all new mothers-Why does my baby cry so much? Will I ever lose all this weight? Am I a bad parent because.?-the book provides practical advice and level-headed reassurance. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby's life.Contents include:.

Eat -breastfeeding, supplemental feeding, moving to solids, nutrition. Grow - baby's physical and mental development. Play - yes, you two actually can have fun. Thrive - health considerations for baby and parent. Live - adapting to your new life, the changing mother-father relationship. Work - coping with being at home and with going back to work.
