    The only Baby Book you'll ever need!

    Everyone always advices a first time parent to get the baby on schedule because it will make life easier. But no one ever tells you how to do it. Rachel Waddilove teaches it all. You will find in the book a schedule for the first year of baby's life. She also teaches parents how to get baby to sleep thru the night as soon as possible. This means parents get to sleep too. Waddilove offers common sense advice based on her many years of experience. She is the eldest sister of six children and the mother of three. A book every first time parent should have.

    Love this book!

    My husband found this book for us and at first I was skeptical, but its truly fantastic! The other reviewer is right so many books just talk talk talk, but they do not provide easy realistic schedule samples! I tell all the other new parents about it! Our 3 month old has been on a schedule since she was a newborn and everyone always tells us how content she seems. Which is a testament to us having this book in our baby arsenal! Rachel is British so if your American just take a sec and you'll quickly understand her lingo!
