Some useful information but not for anxious mums

I see this more as a reference guide to read as your baby reaches each week, rather than a book to inform you during pregnancy. Overall some useful practical guidance, but it’s peppered with lots of ‘don’t do X or your baby could hurt themselves/suffocate/die’ which I found quite shocking. Would not recommend for any anxious mums out there.

Not for me

Found this very patronising and outdated. The narrator is also a little flat and feels like you are being spoken to by a stern matron

ok, but not appropriate for my parenting style

as new parents, we listened to this every weekend intently on what to expect. we got to week 17or 18 and felt some of the advice was not to our style and wasn't alligned to how we want to treat our little girl. we decided to stop listening after the advice on sleep training for naps was along the lines of if they cry...put in ear plugs..and it didn't seem to be meant in good humour....so with that upsetting me, we will no longer use the book in our journey.

Very useful information!

I listened while pregnant then listened to each section again once baby was here. It was SUPER useful! It gave me more confidence as a first time mum and now we have a very happy healthy baby :-)

Clear and short guidance

Great book although the part of sleep training is tough but authors pointed out that we can choose to do it or not.

Great for new parent

Being a new parent is daunting. I listened to this book week by week as my baby grew. It breaks down what to expect each week, giving advice on sleep, feeding, development and more. I found it really helpful particularly during lockdown. Most importantly I found it reassuring knowing what was happening was normal.
