Présentation de l'éditeur

Becoming a parent is one of the greatest joys and also one of the greatest challenges in life. New parents instinctively look to others for advice. In The Baby Book, Rachel Waddilove shares the fruits of her considerable experience as a maternity nurse (and also a mother) to help parents through the first year of their child’s life. Full of practical wisdom on all aspects of parenting, The Baby Book is a must for all those given the responsibility of a newborn baby.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Rachel’s advice on everything from breast-feeding to parenting was invaluable.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very useful advice 4 janvier 2013
Par Kat
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is full of useful advice especially regarding routines and illnesses. I'm not convinced about the 'controlled crying' experiement - it may make the baby mistrust his/her parents if they leave her crying for a long time.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Helpful Book with Some Tweaking 11 février 2007
Par Jennifer - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I found this book to be helpful with some tweaking. She mentions that the child should take their long nap in the morning and the short one in the afternoon; I did just the opposite and my 7 month old twins are AWESOME sleepers. They take a 45-55 minute nap in the morning, 2-2.5 hour nap in the afternoon and sleep from 7:30/8pm till 9/9:30am every night! Also, they are exclusively breastfed so I never gave them boiled water since they were hydrated enough from the nursing. Very helpful pointers though overall. If I can schedule and get twin boys to sleep this well, then anyone can!!!
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Helpful for busy, first-time parents! 29 décembre 2010
Par lrehrmann - Publié sur
I was given this book by a girlfriend who highly recommended it, and I have to say that I am very pleased. As a first-time (and let's be honest, clueless) parent, I found the author's practical and straight-forward advice helpful in managing my expectations of life with a newborn. She is a big proponent of a flexible routine which is somewhere in between the regimented schedule approach and the responsive or "on-demand" approach to infant care. This philosophy seems to blend a little of both, and with our active, busy schedules, it resonated with us.

While I may not agree with everything in the book, (for example, she is not a big fan of pacifiers and we gave in so as not to make a gassy baby more so by crying and gulping air), I understand and appreciate the consistent logic in her approach. Another example is her view on monitors. I understand why she says she is not a fan, and I am sure there are a few new parents out there who could probably benefit from that advice. In our case, however, with a low birth weight baby, our Angelcare monitor has given us the piece of mind so we CAN sleep. (Now if only our son would allow that on a more regular basis...ha!)

I had never even thought to consider some of her recommendations before, like napping in places other than the crib or bassinet and not having black-out curtains to encourage flexibility in the child, and they make perfect sense. I also like her writing style which comes across like having a long sit-down with a grandmother or aunt in-the-know. She is supportive, and the whole point of being flexbile is that tomorrow is a new day and a chance to try again. To be frank, the last thing I need is to feel guilty or bad when something does not go according to plan.

The best things about this book to me are the chapter on establishing flexible routines and that the book is less than two hundred pages. The first is great because she breaks down her philosophy into neatly outlined, daily plans based on the age of the infant. While she does encourage on-demand nursing for the first week plus to encourage milk supply, her suggested routines can start as early as day one (an every four hours plan) and continue through the first year, so any time a parent is ready to give it a go, they have a clear place to start. She also has an amended routine for babies under seven pounds, so in our case, that was especially helpful. Simply put, we started a three-hourly routine when we were ready, and the extra feeds have allowed our son to start catching up in weight. My second favorite thing about this book is the size. While the author offers some basic information and recommendations on infant care and health, even touching on the spiritual needs of the infant for those who are interested, the book is a quick read and when sleep-deprived, easy to cart around, so no one has to memorize the details. We have happily gone from every two plus hour feeds at birth to every three to four hours during the day and every five to six at night starting at around six weeks. Some days are better, some are worse, but we are confident we are heading in the right direction.

If you are looking for a comprehensive desk reference on everything baby-related you can think of, this is not that book. But, if you are looking for help with the basics and a solid approach, based on years of actual, practical application this could be the book for you.

I would reccomend this book to any Mom needing help with setting a routine. I would say though if you are nursing it is much harder to keep up with her every four hour feeding schedule.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Invaluable book! 7 décembre 2013

My mother bought me the Baby Book well as Sleep Solutions before I had my baby girl. Both books fast became my "go to" guides as I navigated the first days weeks and months with a newborn. The Baby book covers everything you might have questions about for the first year and makes you feel like you have a sensible auntie giving you tried and tested advice. the most invaluable guidance in the book are the daily schedules for feeding and sleeping from 0-1 month, 1-2 months and 3-6 months etc. Rachel Waddilove's approach is grounded in good old fashioned pragmatism about babies and putting them on a schedule that is flexible but predictable. My daughter has thrived and was sleeping through the night at 8 weeks and continues to be a very happy and settled little girl at almost 5 months now. My book is well worn and I have bought it for others who have quickly also got their babies into a fail safe routine and enjoyed sleeping through the night. What can I say - Waddilove's advice works! I haven't used any other baby books.

Par new mother - Publié sur
I found this book by accident. It is by far the best baby book I have seen. It has just the right amount of information for a new mother - lots of practical advice and is presented in a friendly, flexible tone. I finally was able to pick up on how to burb and establish a routine. These things seem simple, but as a new mother I finally "got it" after reading the very practical, straight-forward information in this book. My baby is 6 weeks and is much happier. She sleeps more on this schedule, but is much less fussy when she is awake. As a result, I am much less stressed and have more time for other things. This book also established the right priority level and family roles in my mind. I don't think this was the intent of the book, but all of the info has worked for us so far and has improved my confidence and coping skills as a mother. This book and author deserves more publicity in the states. I hope she writes a toddler book.
