Charlie Plunkettabout this book: The True Diary of Baby's First Year a mothering companion is the third in my 'true diaries' series of books. I write about the milestone moments in my life: marriage, pregnancy, birth and motherhood.
In this book I recount my adventures in 'Baby Land' from the birth of my gorgeous little boy, at home with no medical intervention through to his first birthday. It is an honest and humorous account of my attempts to be a yummy mummy, but with sore boobs to contend with and no time to visit a hairdresser I did at times feel more of a scummy mummy!
Within the book I share tips and advice on all the hot topics of having a new-born: how your baby is developing, how to look after yourself and your baby, bonding with your baby, fun things to do together as well as sharing many fabulous products that were invaluable during this special time. There is also advice on breastfeeding, teething, cranial osteopathy, sleep deprivation, weaning, crawling, baby proofing your home and organising a naming day for your child.
The birth of my little boy has changed my life in so many remarkable ways, I feel so blessed to be his mother and parenthood is beyond a doubt the best thing I have ever experienced. Every day he never fails to do something new that delights me and his daddy and writing this book has been a way of treasure those magical firsts forever as well as being a companion for other new mothers.
Once again I have a bright polka dot cover the same as my other books and to keep it unisex I opted for a fabulous pillar box red which I absolutely adore.
