Dorothy Waide is a Karitane nurse and one of New Zealand’s leading sleep consultants with strong international connections. With almost 30 years’ baby nursing and sleep-settling experience in homes here and abroad, Dorothy returned from overseas in 2010 and set up her unique ‘Baby Help’ consultancy, dedicated to teaching new mums the timeless art – and everyday parenting skills – of ‘mother craft’.
"You Simply Can't Spoil a Newborn" is a must have book for any new parent. It focuses on the first three months of a newborn baby's life and offers new parents a unique opportunity to lay a solid and loving foundation that will last a life time.
It also offers all parents unfailing support to help them deal with the countless decisions they face every day. This book reveals Dorothy's nurturing approach in calming the most unsettled baby and teaching them to self-settle and resettle, as well as advice on solving common feeding issues and managing time, relationships and emotional demands in the weeks following birth.
The details are clear and succinct, using bullet points, photographs and illustrations for quick reference. This book is structured by topic rather than developmental stages, acknowledging that babies grow at different rates.
