    We found the follow-on from that (What to expect: the first year) absolutely invaluable for random silly questions that we had but didn't want to bother the health visitor with. It also has common childhood illnesses and what to do with baby in hot or very cold weather.

    Honestly I wouldn't bother with the books. I read loads while preggers and if there's one thing I've found it's that pregnancy and your baby are nothing like the book so it's no help at all!

    Maybe controversial but spend the money on a manicure or something instead - The advice I have given to other new mums since having DD 3 years ago is 'burn your chuffing books'.

    I've seen lots of strong women I know turn to mush and second or triple question their every decision and berate themselves based on the back of some advice that was written in a book that made the author (who knows nothing about them, their child, their children, their circumstances or their experiences) a quick buck.
