    Question Your favourite baby care books

    Ok so you've bought and read all the pregnancy books. But, once the baby pops out, what next? It's so daunting and overwhelming. Babies don't come with instruction manuals.....

    Which books did you find most helpful in learning about how to care for a baby?

    Complete Baby and Childcare by Dr. Miriam Stoppard. As first-time parents, my hubby and I found this book very comprehensive and informative. It comes with a lot of lovely pictures/illustrations as well.

    The American Academy of Pediatrics book as a comprehensive manual and the Dr. Harvey Karp Baby Whisperer book for some nice and simple calming/soothing techniques for the first 8 weeks or so. Honestly, I didn't rely too much on books, other than to give me a rough idea of when certain milestones would be reached, when to start solids, etc. Take a good baby care course and a first aid course - does a lot for your confidence. I'd never even held a baby before mine was born.

    Some mothers, including friends of mine, really liked the structured routines that Gina Ford and others advocate. My child never ate well and a strict schedule didn't work for her.

    I love Pinky McKay's books, although I'm not sure if you can buy them in HK. Her site is http://www.pinky-mychild.com/
    she follows a more gentle parenting approach. Good luck :)
