Keep Calm: The New Mum's Manual

Trust Yourself and Enjoy Your Baby

The essential, practical guide for first-time parents

Keep Calm: The New Mum's Manual, with an introduction by Jools Oliver, is the perfect antidote to inflexible, guilt-inducing parenting guides. Turning the tables on encyclopaedic tomes on parenthood and their often conflicting advice, GP and mum-of-two Dr Ellie will empower you to relax, trust your instincts and enjoy your new baby. Includes:

* Early days – looking after baby and listening to your instincts
* Sleeping – establishing a flexible routine that works
* Feeding – making the right, guilt-free choices
* Soothing – understanding crying and settling your baby
* Weaning – starting with a simple action plan for success
* Development – identifying key milestones and not worrying
* Health – recognising baby illnesses and when to call the doctor
* Vaccinations – understanding the facts and getting them without tears

This isn't a one-size-fits-all routine but a lighthearted, sensible guide that is full of essential advice to build your confidence and bring back mummy power.
