Why won’t my baby stop crying? Will I ever lose this baby weight? How can I get a decent night’s sleep?
Who am I - Help?!
A new baby doesn’t come with an instruction manual but it feels like it should! It can be utterly terrifying when you bring your baby home for the first time, and nothing quite prepares you for the joys (and sometimes, horrors!) yet to come. First-time Mum addresses all your worries and gives you the practical advice you need to start coping wonderfully with a new bundle of life at home, including advice on how to:
• Bond and play with your baby (the fun bits) • Cope with tiredness and feeling like the living dead • Identify your baby’s cries and stop tears • Feed your baby and make sure he/she is happy and healthy • Adapt and cope with life at home and the (sometimes) dreaded return to work! • Understand your emotions and the change in mum/dad relationships

'I love how Holly writes- I felt like reading it I was sitting chatting with a friend having a cuppa in a cafe- it's not preachy, it's full of helpful advice and there's enough it'll help you make your own mind up. It's also an easy read, as I remember those early days, and actually reading anything was a task in itself... I wish this book had been available when I was pregnant....Highly recommended by us!' - We Love Books: Mum Friendly
