Aiming to be a daily handbook for all parents, this book draws on the NCT's 40 years of experience to offer balanced guidance on all the latest topics, such as breastfeeding, cot mattresses and being a working parent.
New parents are bombarded with information from well-meaning parties, which can be difficult to absorb. The NCT Complete Book of BabyCare draws on the National Childbirth Trust's (the largest childbirth and parenting charity in the world) expertise and practical skills to help parents cope. The NCT Complete Book of BabyCare aims to be a daily handbook for all parents, but without judging or setting standards; it will not carry the hidden danger that it may make some parents feel inadequate when they don't appear to match up to some textbook ideal. Using actual parents' voices to illustrate the book, it aims to help new parents find their own way of doing things. It also recognises that parenting is not just about learning babycare techniques -- the emotional impact of a new baby and becoming a family will be given equal attention. Drawing on the NCT's forty years of experience, The NCT Complete Book of BabyCare also offers balanced guidance on all the latest topics, such as breastfeeding, cot mattresses and being a working parent.
