Baby and children’s health books from Dr Dawn Harper

As someone who likes to leave an age gap between her children, by the time it comes to have the next one I have completely forgotten everything about the baby years. With Roo, I read everything I could get my hands on. All the books, magazines and those annoying baby update emails you get from every brand under the sun. By the time I had Tigger, I relaxed and hoped that it would all come flooding back, which for the most part did. With a five year age gap with Piglet, I had completely forgotten everything. Even now I still feel like a new mum, looking up the same questions and ailments.

Thankfully I have the new baby and children’s health books from Dr Dawn Harper, which are guiding me through Piglet’s first year and give me hope for the toddler years.
