The next title in the bestselling ‘Sense’ series deals with your baby's relationship with food.

This has the ‘Baby Sense’ stamp all over it and set out in the same easy-to-read way. I like the way it covers healthy eating for the mother in pregnancy and when she is breastfeeding. Sometimes these books leave out the mothers and it’s nice to get some details like how much weight you should gain for your size and what supplements you should be taking.
It covers feeding for baby from prem to toddlers and there is a big section on breastfeeding. I found this very informative and not too rigid as some books can be. From holding the baby to latching to bottle feeding, the details are there. I also love the charts that are included, mapping out sleep times and bottle/breastfeeding times.
The toddler side of things is helpful but short.
I feel the book is very real and will actually help you instead of scaring the life out of you and making you feel inferior. It shows you that you can break the rules sometimes and all will still be well.
I would recommend this to anyone having a baby for the first time or second – I’m reading it before giving birth to my second and it’s really great. There is so much I’ve forgotten and it’s also helping me with my toddler.
