Words of wisdom from the author:
New Parents have so much to learn in a short time and every parent wants to do everything right, which no one can of course! Even the most capable, organised parents who are well prepared for their roles may feel totally overwhelmed by their new responsibilities. We live in a world of information overload so parents need to be discerning about the advice they receive, what they take on board, and what they ignore. New Baby 101 is your reliable go-to reference, alongside your trusted health professionals. Ultimately parents know their own baby best and can trust their instincts – if something doesn't feel right, it probably isn't right. Congratulations, and welcome to the wonderful world of parenting.
