Booklist Review

This is a desirable choice for parents who want a brief, clear, well-organized answer to common problems from birth to age three. It flows by age and is then split into sections related to sleeping, feeding, and dealing with general issues. It's handy for parents who don't want a separate book for every situation. Some parents may appreciate that Ford (Good Mother, Bad Mother, 2015) is a former maternity nurse and a best-selling author. She'll have some critics (who note that she hasn't had children of her own and recommends letting children cry it out), but as with all child-rearing books, parents will quickly determine if Ford's work is a good fit for them. If parents want a more extensive medical book to deal with all issues, including fevers, infections, and more, they may want something like the American Academy of Pediatrics' Caring for Your Baby and Young Child: Birth to Age 5 (2009). Ford's previous books are on the shelves of many American public libraries, where this title will be another good addition to parenting collections.--McIntosh, Joyce Copyright 2017 Booklist
