    1. This is the most helpful baby-care book that I've read to date. The book provides tips for eating schedules and napping that I've already put into practice (a day after reading) and have already gotten GREAT results from. My favorite thing about this book in comparison to other baby-care books is that it doesn't give overly detailed instructions in how parents "HAVE TO" feed, swaddle, cloth, bathe, play with (etc) their children. She makes her tips flexible to different people and different pare [...]

    2. I had personal issues with a lot of this book, including the strict schedules and the CIO methods that she suggests. As an attachment parent, I would NEVER use any of these with my son.

    3. Lines I loved:He has his own soul. Her own spirit. Your baby is a present, a gift of life itself, which will unfold and develop before your very own eyes.One of the greatest gifts you can give your newborn is a sense of confidence in yourself.Confident decisions are decisions that you’re happy with. Period.Expect the best and don’t look for problems.Don’t underestimate the emotional, physical, and mental changes that occur once you give birth.Because babies’ lungs are so tiny, they breat [...]

    4. If you are a first time parent, this book will give your confidence and lots of practical advice in dealing with various topics such as establishing a sleeping schedule, tips on feeding, weaning and teething. This book is also recommended for second time parents as a great resources especially for those whom have forgotten what it is like to have a young baby in the house. I personally loved the author’s ideas on the various development activities such as “pincer play”, “climb, tunnel an [...]

    5. I really liked this book. It isn't overwhelming in detail. She may get some of the small stuff wrong - from what I've seen of other reviews - but overall she gives you enough information to feel like you have an idea, without putting in so many warnings and details and maybes that you just shut down because it is too much. She makes me wish I could have a nanny to help me. Meanwhile, I may make this one of the books I give couples expecting their first baby.

    6. Skimmed this, liked it for the most part though I don't think I would need to keep it on hand or anything. I like the emphasis on confidence because I need more of that as I approach babytime.

    7. This book would be really useful for a new mum, with very little knowledge of childcare. I have worked with babies for years, but fancied reading the book, because of it being Jo Frost's. I didn't really learn anything new from the book, but the layout was good and it was well organised. The separate boxes and bullet pointed section would be helpful to a new mum. There were a couple of points that I didn't actually agree with, which I found interesting. Overall, an interesting book, worth a read [...]

    8. I buy this for every expectant mother I know, and often a 'Haynes Baby Manual' or 'Commando Dad' as well. I am a professional childcarer who has read a lot of books on this subject and I can say that this is the best and most comprehensive straight-talking basic guide I've read, and I always come back to it. Don't rely on Mumsnet, where bored and competitive people will make you question your every move. Buy a simple manual.Jo Frost is an experienced child carer (although no one could be quite a [...]

    9. This book was everything you would expect from the title, which is not to say that it contains "everything you need to know", because it doesn't. However, given its size I thought it was a very worthwhile read.The first part of the book about pregnancy was brief and the best part was the post-pregnancy part. I bought this when our little guy was about 2 months old and was pleased it mostly focussed on the first year.I was pleased it was not overloaded with self-promotion and too many anecdotes. [...]

    10. Jo Frost is at her best when giving ideas for interacting with babies--using games and playtime to stimulate, teach, and have fun. That is, after all, her area of expertise as a former nanny and currentcelebrenanny. Her book would have been much better had she focused on this strength. Of course, it would also have been about 16 pages long. Nothing in this book is detailed enough to be useful in terms of baby care for new parents, and nothing is entertaining enough to make up for the lack of sub [...]

    11. I'm sorry, but unless you have actually given birth to a baby yourself, you're not qualified to write a book on baby care. Well, maybe that's not entirely fair, but I can't take Jo Frost seriously with this book. She's good at the nanny thing, but when she's cuddling other people's babies and trying to explain how to breastfeed when she's never done it herself and has never had formal training in lactation consultancy -- just one of my pet peeves -- it's hard to figure out what makes her such an [...]

    12. Although my child is now 13 months and this book is geared specifically to children between birth and one year of age, I still felt the book had a lot to offer. Granted, there were some sections that I skimmed over such as "How to diaper your child." Overall, however, I really appreciated the underlying message of the book which is: The Importance of Confident Parenting. "Since babies can sense your feelings and experience them, one of the greatest gifts you can give your baby is a sense of conf [...]

    13. Very good and practical but she needs to balance the pronouns as they're very biased towards baby boys, particularly evident In describing dressing him in trousers and a shirt. Also, feeding schedules are a little complicated as there are more than one for a given age. Love the controlled crying technique and can't wait to try it out. All in all I highly recommend this book and I'm looking forward to the next one when my baby is a little older!

    14. Maybe it's because I read this book after I had read so many others, but there wasn't anything here that I hadn't already learned elsewhere. This is a straightforward book written about basic baby care so it might be helpful if it's the first thing you read, but otherwise I would skip it. I do think her theories with older children on her show were wonderfully insightful though, so I will try another one of her books when we get to the discipline stages of childhood.

    15. Not that I'M the expert or anything, but while reading I felt like I already had a grasp on what she was trying to teach; common sense in many cases. Very broad in her advice at times, and at other times was WAY too opinionated [babies should sleep in the same room as their parents for the 1st 4-5 months]. I DID love that she has everything labeled and categorized for easy referencing. And I'm sure I'm going to have questions when my baby actually comes.

    16. This is the only book you really need to have to know how to care for your baby, once it's born, and how to become confident with the day to day routinesSimple structure of the book helps a lot for new parents who dont have time for long paragraphsI made a review about this book, here: youtu/Yb4PveQuUIk

    17. good book but not great. Alot of info is repeating from other books and some that cannot be applied or introduced too early in the development of the child. Examples: feeding schedules, amounts, and sleeping schedules; granted every child is different and these were just a suggestions. However she does give some insightful tips.

    18. I loved her show and love her advice to parents and the strategies she suggests. Not a mega-fan of the book, though. Some conflicting advice, and nothing that really made me think "I'm glad I read that" or "let me see what Jo thinks about that". Shame, really. Does she have a book on toddlers? Cause that's where I feel her strength is.

    19. I think this book is great to read during pregnancy , as a pregnant female with my first baby -that feels like i know nothing this is a confidence booster ! to the moms who gave it 1 star if you think that it is beneath you and she is not informative i think you can never be to humble as a parent or parent to be and there is ALWAYS something to learn

    20. I love Jo Frost, and enjoy watching the Super Nanny. But I haven't gotten anything new out of this book. It's pretty basic stuff, nicely written in Jo's British voice, and I've enjoyed it for the most part. I think she might be a little more conservative in her views than I am, but I will continue to reference it as my baby continues through her first year.

    21. Pretty robust overall summary with some good ideas and rules of thumb, but I'm on a different page than the author in terms of some big items (feeding and weaning), so probably not the best reference guide for us.

    22. I will say, most of the advice is welcome! But she has some strong views on vaccines and doesn't seem to support attachment parenting, so if you're parenting tends in that direction, just keep it in mind amongst the rest of her typically good advice.

    23. This book is great - Supernanny has some great information, lots of resources, and is clearly an expert on baby care. There were so many specifics, little details that no one thinks to tell you about taking care of a baby - I'm not going anywhere without this book throughout my baby's first year.

    24. I wish I had read this when Lilly was younger as it has some good ideas for developmental activities with the baby, techniques to use and is a much shorter version than many other books out there, but covers the main points.

    25. Covers the basics of infant care and is very clear and quite respectful of the different choices mothers make. Surprised me for the lack of routine in the first months, compared to the rigid and thorough routines for young children in the television program.

    26. Didn't find this book accurate in terms of breastfeeding information and felt it was lacking in the breadth of information offered in comparison to other books. Disappointing since I like Jo Frost's no-nonsense approach on Supernanny.

    27. I found this useful, down to earth and easy to read, but in many places stating the obvious and pretty similar to other books. However I will refer back to the sleep pattern section.

    28. Reading the U.S. edition. Love it! She has helped us know what to expect in the different stages and gives appropriate activities.
