Includes: Early days - looking after baby and listening to your instincts; Sleeping - establishing a flexible routine that works; Feeding - making the right, guilt-free choices; Soothing - understanding crying and settling your baby; Weaning - starting with a simple action plan for success; Development - identifying key milestones and t worrying; Health - recognising baby illnesses and when to call the doctor; and Vaccinations - understanding the facts and getting them without tears. This isn't a one-size-fits-all routine but a lighthearted, sensible guide that is full of essential advice to build your confidence and bring back mummy power.
