Babies: The Mumsnet Guide




If you're a new parent, then Babies: The Mumsnet Guide is your road map to the strange world of the postnatal - a world of strong emotions and revolting excretions.

And now you can download the Babies guide to your iPhone or Android smartphone with a FREE app.

If you can't log on to Mumsnet because it may wake up a Precious First Born whose sleep-resistant powers are positively superhuman, then this is the book/app you need to hand for those middle-of-the-night crises (but make sure you don't laugh too loudly).

Babies: The Mumsnet Guide contains the advice, thoughts, experiences and random burblings of thousands of parents on:

  • Breastfeeding
  • Colic
  • Sleep
  • Food
  • Health
  • Relationships
  • Childcare 

It's the gathered-up, boiled-down wisdom of thousands of mums and the occasional dad who have posted on Mumsnet since its launch in June 2000. Throw in some debates about parenting styles, embarrassing admissions, a fair bit of gore and the odd bit of flagrant silliness and you have the answers to everything you need to get you through life with a baby.

(Until you get to toddlerdom and then you need Toddlers: The Mumsnet Guide.)
