When I was pregnant with the twins I read all kinds of pregnancy and baby books, hoping that they would prepare me for the big journey ahead of me. I fell pregnant with baby number three when the twins had only just turned one so I thought (hoped) my memory was still pretty fresh and I would remember everything once the baby was born, besides that I didn’t have time to read up anyway. I was terribly wrong, there were lots of times where I wasn’t sure about something and I know the Simply Baby book would have been a life saver.

Whether you are a first time or fifth time mum you will love the Simply Baby book, a compact reference guide with quick and easy to understand answers to all your baby questions. Designed for busy parents on the go this book does not contain random fluff, unnecessary information and silly jokes. The Simply Baby books covers all important topics like Sleeping, Health, Eating, Development and more in just 114 pages and there is even room for personal notes. It will take you only 1.5 hour (roughly) to read from cover to cover, or do a few pages every day whilst you rest your feet. This book may be small in size but is definitely not small in information.

How many sleeps does a two month old baby need and how long do they sleep for? How much (breast)milk does a 4 month old baby drink? What are great first finger foods? What to do when baby chokes, gets burnt, has a fall on the head? Which milestones does an average baby reach around 6 months of age? These are just a few of the many questions that are addressed in the Simply Baby book. The First Aid section and emergency contact page are fantastic and it would be a great reference for babysitters or carers if something was to happen.

Written by a mother and a pediatrician this book offers professional advice about things all mums need and want to know about (raising) their baby. The two authors have managed to make important information available in bite-size chapters that are easy to read and understand, they even included in-depth nutritional information and sign language, something you usually only find in very specific, thick books that will take weeks to plough through!

To find out more about the Simply Baby book, the authors or content and to order online visit The book costs just USD $13.95 making this is a fabulous useful and affordable gift for new mums.
