In the newest edition of my Baby and Child Care Handbook, l have added Everything You Need To Know About Pregnancy. Pregnancy was always a part of the book, but recently there has been a great increase worldwide of various infections during pregnancy. Not only is a woman’s system more than twenty per cent more vulnerable during pregnancy, but bacteria, viruses, parasites and toxins found in food are a problem. For example, even some cheeses that you enjoy will have to be avoided, and your loved cat may need to be ostracised because of the danger of transmitting toxoplasmosis infection. You will find a vast updated amount of important information that will hopefully protect the amazing system of life developing within you. You will also be updated on the latest medical information regarding the prevention of food allergies; by starting to feed your baby a variety of solids from four months. Even the belief that eggs, peanut and other problematic foods should not be given to the young, has been debunked. These, and many other important medical breakthroughs, mean that updated information is essential today.

Delight a child with a colourful crocheted or knitted Octo. Octos' twisty tentacles are calming and comforting - and they feel a bit like mum's umbilical cord. THE DANISH OCTO BOOK is the official book on the adorable knitted and crocheted octopus puppets that have become a huge phenomenon in Denmark and is now spreading like wildfire across the globe. With tentacles reminding babies and young children of an umbilical cord, what started as a means to soothe and calm premature babies in hospitals has now become a natural presence in lots of Danish homes, and turned into an unstoppable movement with Octo groups forming all over the world. But this is only the beginning. With the octopuses having showed similar effects with older babies, the Octo movement is about to reach a whole new magnitude. It all started with one octopus-obsessed dad who, when his daughter was born premature, got hold of a small octopus-shaped puppet for her. At the hospital, people soon noticed that the little girl was clutching onto the puppet's tentacles, looking calmer and more secure. It didn't take long till two volunteers started crocheting similar puppets for the neonatal units at three hospitals. This is how the Danish Octo Project was born. Today, this association of volunteers has many ambassadors in the country, supplying Octos for babies at every hospital in Denmark. THE DANISH OCTO BOOK tells the story of this fascinating international phenomenon, but also contains lots of cute and inspiring knitting and crocheting patterns to help parents and guardians make their own octopuses. Written in collaboration with The Danish Octo Project, this small, lovely book is the original and official book on this new movement. Combining the Danish way of life with the mindfulness of knitting, this is the ideal book for parents, grandparents, and all those who want to cultivate their meditative passion for knitting, while at the same time creating the ultimate loving gift for a child.

Breastfeeding is undoubtedly the natural and healthy way to nourish your baby, but it is neither always easy nor instinctive. Mothers often lack the knowledge and support they need for trouble-free breastfeeding. Breastfeed your baby is a complete but concise, practical guide for nursing mothers. The information is based on the most recent research in the field, and since it is evidence-based, it will also be invaluable to doctors, nursing staff, antenatal professionals and doulas - everyone assisting women during the intra-partum period. The information is authoritative and presented in such a way that the book can be read in one or two sittings before the baby's birth, yet detailed enough to remain an essential companion throughout the breastfeeding process. Each chapter starts with ten top tips on the theme, and the content is enhanced throughout with practical hints and tips. Case histories scattered throughout add to the level of practicality and will help mothers realize that they are not alone if they struggle. Chapters include: Why breastfeed; Preparing for breastfeeding; The mechanics of breastfeeding; The best start (latching, ensuring good milk supply); Preventing and solving problems; Baby at home; Back to work (breastfeeding in absentia, pumps and other aids); Nursing an older baby; When to wean; Breastfeeding in special circumstances. The book also contains contact details for lactation specialists and La Leche League groups throughout the country so nursing mothers will know where to find help if they struggle.

Borsvoeding is ongetwyfeld die natuurlikste en gesondste manier om jou baba te voed, maar dis nie noodwendig altyd instinktief of maklik nie. Ma's het dikwels nie die nodige kennis en ondersteuning om kommerloos te borsvoed nie en daarvoor is hierdie boek die antwoord. Dit is 'n volledige, maar kompakte praktiese gids vir ma's wat borsvoed. Die jongste navorsing op die gebied word in die inhoud weerspieel, en omdat die boek op 'n sterk feitebasis berus, sal dit ook van onskatbare waarde wees vir dokters, verpleegpersoneel, voorgeboortelike begeleiers en doulas - enigiemand wat vroue voor, tydens en na die geboorte bystaan. Die inligting is gesaghebbend en bondig genoeg aangebied dat die boek voor baba se geboorte in een of twee sessies deurgelees kan word, maar met genoeg detail om gedurende die borsvoedproses ma se borsvoedbybel te wees. Elke hoofstuk skop af met tien top-wenke oor die tema, en die inhoud word deurgaans aangevul met praktiese wenke en voorstelle. Uittreksels uit gevallestudies word deurgaans gebruik, en hou die trant prakties terwyl dit ma's ook gerusstel dat hulle nie alleen is as hulle sukkel nie. Die onderskeie hoofstukke dek die volgende: Hoekom borsvoed; Voorbereiding vir borsvoeding; Hoe borsvoeding werk; Die beste begin (suiggreep en genoeg melk); Voorkoming en hantering van probleme; 'n Baba in die huis; Terug werk toe (borsvoed wanneer jy nie daar is nie: pompe en ander hulpmiddels); Die ouer baba; Wanneer om te speen; Borsvoeding in spesiale omstandighede. Daar is ook 'n lys name en kontakbesonderhede van laktasiespesialiste en La Leche-groepe regdeur die land sodat ma's wat borsvoed sal weet waar om hulp te soek as hulle sukkel.
