"Baby Care" is an excellent newborn baby book by Baby Guru Rhodanthe Lipsett OAM a former mid-wife and nurse with over 50 years experience.
I met Rodanthe in person at a Baby Fair soon after the birth of my first child five years ago and I clearly remember her generous and informative advice regarding my own baby at the time. Rodanthe has a capable but gentle way about her - and this shine's through in Baby Care.
With such a wealth of experience to draw on - Rhodanthe has helped more than 23,000 mums with their new babies during her career - readers can't help but benefit from her down-to-earth advice. As Baby Care covers not only newborn care but also the preparation and pregnancy leading up to the birth, it's a fabulous reference for new mums to have on hand both before and after a new baby arrives on the scene.
Baby Care features step-by-step practical advice covering all aspects of newborn baby-care, and upholds Rhodanthe's personal mantra of "no one right way". Rhodanthe's book supports and encourages mother's of newborns at a time when they are needing extra reassurance - that in this over-analysed parenting world, it is still okay for a mum to trust her instincts when it comes to what's right for her own baby.
"Baby Care" by Rhodanthe Lipsett OAM is published by Finch Publishing, and can be purchased online (with free postage) at The Book Depository and is available in all good bookstores - Barbara Bryan for SingleMum.com.au
