This is an indispensable compendium of hints, tips and checklists for parents of babies and toddlers. Dr Carol Cooper, an acclaimed authority on parenting, has compiled an information-packed little book that makes an ideal gift for all new parents. The first four chapters cover 0-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years. Each chapter starts with lists of physical, mental and emotional milestones appropriate to the particular age group, and then goes on to cover everything from clothes for the new baby and breastfeeding hints to tips on potty training and learning to read. The book concludes with an invaluable chapter on Health Matters and a list of useful addresses.
