First-Time Parent Book By Lucy Atkins
‘A great book for any first-time parent.’ Sarah Beeny.
Practical, realistic advice from someone who’s been there (three times). this is the thinking person’s guide to the first year, helping you through day-to-day life as an exhausted parent, from how to change a nappy to ‘is baby yoga really worth the effort?’ First-Time Parent book covers all the basics – sleep, food, crying (you and your baby), health, relationships, and work. Above all, it is on your side because most of the time the real expert is you. I wrote this book because I couldn’t take being patronized by paranoid baby guides pushing silly agendas. This is the first-time parent book I wished I’d had the first time around.
