How do you cope with a newborn baby and a demanding toddler? Britain's bestselling childcare author Gina Ford provides all the answers and more in this major new work

The prospect of bringing a new baby home when you already have a toddler can be extremely daunting. Life with a newborn baby is tiring and challenging enough but with a demanding elder brother or sister to deal with too, how do you cope?

Written in the same reassuring, accessible style as her bestselling The Contented Little Baby Book, The Contented Baby with Toddler Book is full of practical tips and sanguine advice that will calm and reassure all panicked parents. A major feature of the book is the adaptable routines, specifically designed to help you structure your day and meet all the needs of your toddler and your new baby... and still have time for lots of cuddles.

By using Gina's easy-to-follow methods not only will you have a contented baby who feeds regularly and sleeps through the night from an early age, but also a happy, involved toddler who remains calm and co-operative during this unsettled time.


Gina Ford is the Delia Smith of parenting ... while Delia tells you how to make the perfect omelette, Gina tells you how to nurture the perfectly happy baby
