"Best book to buy for New Mums/Dads"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I found this book to be the most helpful out of all the ones I read while pregnant. It covers everything you need to know about the first 3 months of the babies life and techniques to help you. I have recommended this to many new Mums and they agreed that it was extremely helpful.

"A must read for new mummy's & daddys"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Very applicable to this day and age! Gives sound advice for the everyday situations that arise.


The first three months of a newborn baby's life offer new parents a unique opportunity to lay a solid and loving foundation that will last a lifetime. You Simply Can't Spoil a Newborn reveals Dorothy Waide's nurturing approach in calming the most unsettled baby and teaching them to self-settle and resettle, as well as advice on how to solve common feeding issues and manage time, relationships and emotional demands in the weeks following birth. As Dorothy says, 'Spoiling doesn't come into it -- it is impossible to shower your baby with too much love!'
