For more details, please consult the latest information provided by Royal Mail's International Incident Bulletin. In a humorous style, the book 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? I’m so glad I’ve read this book in my third trimester before the baby arrives- whether you can apply it all or an amount goes out the window- the reassurance of it right now is real.

Reading this I was able to find areas I wanted to delve into deeper which is why I feel that this is a great starting point for people to find areas they want to know more about. 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. It also has so much information for mothers, yet there are only tiny sections for fathers thrown in. Contents the equipment and kit new parents really need, how to cope with the first few hours, coming home, bonding, how to survive the first few days, and sleeping.Cry - why your baby cries, what to do, why you'll want to cry, too * 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 * Also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies.

The First-Time Parent is on your side, and reassures that you can cope brilliantly with your new baby and your new life. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions.In particular I found the first couple of chapters, about looking after a newborn, very useful and reassuring, since I was clueless. Forget unrealistic childcare manuals - this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead. Her last novel, MAGPIE LANE, a literary mystery set in an Oxford College, was chosen as a Book of the Year by the Guardian, The Telegraph, Good Housekeeping magazine and Radio 4's Open Book.
