What would you put in it?

One the first page ... throw this and all other books away.

What ever it is its a phase. Or words to that effect more elloquently put.

Abandon the word 'should'. Your children will be able to do stuff when they're ready.

This too will pass.

Until then, wine

Lol Sofa - but I do think there should be a mumsnet handbook full of all the gems gleaned from posters.

1-theres a stripe on newborn nappies that changed colour when they've peed

2-envelope neck vests can be pulled down to avoid poonamis in the hair

3-weetabix sets like concrete if you don't wipe it up immediately

4-not all advice from other parents is invaluable, learn to separate the wheat from the chaff

That's all I can think of for now grin

There's no such thing as spoiling a baby or giving too much attention or cuddles. That babies need love, love and more love to thrive and develop into well rounded amazing people.
