Reviews

For sensible, practical advice look to further than The Baby Book. Author Rachel Waddilove has plenty of know-how to share. * Inspire Magazine * Based on her belief that `Babies are a precious gift to be enjoyed as part of family life'. A reassuring and supremely helpful manual. * Methodist Recorder * The wisest book about families I have ever read. -- Rachel Johnson * The Daily Telegraph * This book is so popular, it sold out of its first print run. * Practical Parenting * Rachel's schedule was just the thing. Apple was sleeping through the night by six weeks. She was a very happy and settled baby because Rachel got us into a routine. Her advice was invaluable. -- Gwyneth Paltrow * NOW Magazine * The book draws on a wealth of experience to guide a new parent through all areas of their baby's first year. The order of the day here is a structured yet flexible routine, and a calm level-headed ream of advice from someone who has seen it all before. If you'd like a maternity nurse and can't afford one, this book isn't a bad substitute! -- Hilary Cockshaw * Home and Family * I'm sent piles of health and well-being books to read, and the ones that stand out talk directly to the reader with warmth and authority. The Baby Book does just that. -- Sarah Stacey * You Magazine, Mail on Sunday * I found this book to be extremely informative, going into detail over teething problems, winding and most importantly sleep-training and crying - how to understand it, how to deal with it and that it is okay to let your baby cry. There is no oracle that can tell you how to get your newborn to sleep through the night before six weeks, or what to do when he is creaming his head off for hours at a time, but this book gets pretty close. With Waddilove's focus on getting your baby to fit into your life and not the other way around, while still putting strong emphasis on a routine, on top of her attention to many of the questions that go unanswered in our manuals, it is well worth a look. * Families South West magazine * May well be seen as the most sensible book ever written on how to bring up a baby. * The Observer * "When you first bring your baby home from the hospital it can be a very daunting experience. All you can think of is giving your child the best start in life. Having Rachel with us for the first few days helped us to understand and learn the basics. Rachel's knowledge and understanding is incredible; she completely put us at ease in those early days and gave us absolute trust in her and our ability to be a great parents. Her support in putting our daughter into a flexible routine and getting her to sleep well was life changing. As we can both be away from home frequently, it was important to establish a great routine and have a baby that slept well. With Rachel's help our daughter was sleeping through the night from 6 weeks. Having a baby changes everything, and we found that Rachel's presence in those early days was invaluable. We have grown into confident parents because of our time with Rachel and the advice she gave us. We believe that this book will do the same for you." -- Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall
