After the First Six Weeks
Midwife Cath has delivered more than 10,000 babies over the last 40 years, but her care of mothers and babies doesn't end when they leave the hospital. She strongly believes that all families need ongoing support, particularly in their first crucial year of parenting. After the First Six Weeks is a follow-up to Midwife Cath's bestselling book The First Six Weeks. Week six is a major milestone for both babies and parents, and this comprehensive guidebook will provide a roadmap to 'what's next'-starting at six weeks and taking you through to the end of the first 12 months. Midwife Cath covers all the joys and challenges of your child's first year at home, focusing on such issues as breast and bottle feeding; the introduction of solids; sleep; growth and development; the importance of play; safety; and her Bath Bottle Bed (BBB) routine and how it evolves over these 12 months. Midwife Cath's invaluable experience and wisdom will help you establish routines that will ensure a healthier, happier baby and better-rested, more confident parents.
