Wow! How I wish this book was available with my first child! This book covers absolutely EVERYTHING you could need to know in your first 4 months of baby raising and is the perfect asset to compliment your transition out of hospital to your own home.

It’s everything I needed and more. Your Baby Doesn’t Come With A Book is genuinely your one stop shop for information about bub, that you would normally frantically search for on the internet as a new parent. You can absolutely trust the information in the book because it comes straight from a trusted source being Dr Golly.

I’ve absolutely loved the book so far, it’s everything I was missing when I was becoming a first-time mum. I love how simple and easy it is to read and how accessible the index is for when I’m needing an answer to a problem right away.
