Giveaway #3 Keep Calm: The New Mum's Manual book by Dr. Ellie Canon


Ladies and gents, I am giving away Keep Calm: The New Mum's Manual, with an introduction by Jools Oliver, is the perfect antidote to inflexible, guilt-inducing parenting guides. Turning the tables on encyclopaedic tomes on parenthood and their often conflicting advice, GP and mum-of-two Dr Ellie will empower you to relax, trust your instincts and enjoy your new baby. 


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 not worrying
* Health - recognising baby illnesses and when to call the doctor
* 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.

  1. I read with an open mind! I believe everyone is different and what works for one, may not work for another!

  4. I think they can be useful - even if you only use snippets of information. Every baby and mama is different so there's no one size fits all style of parenting. You have to take what applies to you and the rest with a pinch of salt.

  6. They can be very useful especially for a first time mum who doesn't have other mums to give advice and guidance.

  13. I dont' believe in them but i recognise that they have their value; there's always something to learn from others. All babies are different but there are some commonalities that baby manuals can be helpful informing one about.

  26. They can be useful but they should only be used as a guide, what works for you is the best way

  27. Good advice is always an asset, but instinct plays big part too.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They can be useful but you have to consider how the advice fits into your life

  29. Manuals can be helpful, as a guide. As information is vast, and changes at a rapid rate. So it is good to have up-to-date resource, reference, information regarding appropriate websites etc.
