Finding out what to expect during each week of pregnancy is easy; the shops are heaving with informative guides. Yet when the baby finally arrives and parents are left to face the weeks of unpredictability and worry that a new baby brings, there are no week-by-week baby manuals to offer the advice, information and reassurance. Your Baby Week By Week is the guide parents have been crying out for. Each chapter covers just one week of a baby s development, and, ideal for tired and anxious mothers, the week is divided into sections so that they can quickly and easily skim the chapter and find the information they re looking for. It covers the basics - sleep, feeding, crying, washing, play and development as well as being packed full of vital information and handy tips for checking a baby s progress, including- which vaccinations he needs and when how much milk/feeds he needs planning ahead specific problems you may encounter, such as colic, and how to deal with them Clearly laid out and written by two experienced mothers - one a paediatrician, the other the Daily Mirror's health editor, this has the potential to become the cornerstone of the Vermilion parenting list.
