There are few life experiences more joyful than becoming a parent, but caring for a newborn can be daunting, particularly when you're not sure whose advice to follow or what your baby really needs.
In The Blissful Baby Expert, Lisa Clegg draws on her own experience of motherhood and her professional life as a nanny and maternity nurse to share her essential, trusted advice. Gentle, reassuring and practical, her book guides you every step of the way from birth to two years. It includes:
- Equipment – what is essential and what is helpful
- Coming home – how to cope and bond in the early days
- Sleep – flexible plans to help your baby settle and sleep
- Feeding – guilt-free breast- and bottlefeeding
- Weaning – when to start and how to do it
- Q&As – common worries and what to do
- Development – what to expect and advice on toys
Every baby is different and this is why Lisa's book isn't a restrictive one-size-fits-all plan. Instead, she gives you the knowledge you need to trust your own instincts, build your confidence and learn to recognise what is best for your baby. With this knowledge, you'll enjoy calm, happy parenting and a blissful, settled baby.
"To me, The Blissful Baby Expert really is like a fairy god mother! The advice Lisa gave me was straightforward, well-explained and easy to follow. And everything she told me to do worked perfectly. Unlike some baby experts, she's approachable and patient, offering gentle reassurance but not in a judgemental way. Thanks to her I feel in control again and more importantly, I'm getting sleep! I've already recommended her to loads of my friends and will continue to do so."
