    Good book for a new mother

    I purchased this book from flipkart while expecting our first baby....
    This book helped us to educate ourself about the upcoming post delivery situations/problems may arise related to the new born baby....
    Most of the topics are discussed as question-Answer format which mainly covers all the FAQs related to the issue....
    USP than other books:Methods/remedies/caring all are discussed keeping in view of Indian Family culture and environment so same can be easily implemented.

    A must have for all new mothers

    Great book for all new mothers. The book is suited very well to the Indian context of raising a child. When a baby is born a mother is surrounded with so many advice that you need to filter out which ones to take and which to ignore. This book helps you do just that and gives you confidence in taking care of your baby.

    even as a doctor, was amazed at the number of facts I that I gathered from this simple book. Many questions asked here are infact commonly asked by parents and I do not have any answer except "consult your paeditrician!" This book is written in a simple Q and A format and addresses most mthys and realities about bring up your child right from birth to puberty. I found it most useful both as a doc as well a parent...
