Your Baby’s First Year: Month By Month Developmental Stages Book Reviews

Product Tested By Naomi Blackmore – Eowyn 11 Weeks

Naomi Awarded The Your Baby’s First Year: Month By Month Developmental Stages Book 4.5/5

The book looked relatively thin and the cover looked very amateur in its design. However, the title and the idea of the content was very appealing and as new parents gave us a desire to read the book. The actual cover design looked like something anyone with Microsoft Publisher could have knocked up in half an hour. It didn’t look sleek and professional and certainly not like the sort of book you would expect to find in a high street book store or on a recommended page of a website. The cover of the book did not make me want to read it, but the title did. The picture looked like a jpeg or pdf that had been cut and pasted onto the cover design rather than a design being deliberately established. The fact that it was predominantly white also made me think it was saving printing costs or that it had been self-published. I think the concept of the book is really strong and helpful to new parents particularly when most of us have no real education of what our child’s development would be other than just big things such as crawling and walking etc.  This was our first child and the book was received when she was 5 weeks old. I thought it was clear and helpful to present what the book was aiming to do and how it would help me as  a parent engage with it as a helpful resource. It was very informative, looking at the physical development and what was going on in baby’s brain etc. that from the outside we can’t see. Breaking it down into months helps as a parent to look at what is coming up next, and what to expect at roughly the right time rather than having no real clue as to what may take place or when. The information was clearly set so it was understandable and engaging as a reader. By understanding what may be going on psychologically in my child it enables us as parents to be more responsive and in a more appropriate manner. It also helps us to cope with and manage the stressful parts of raising a new baby because we have greater understanding of the stresses and challenges that they too are facing at the same time. Absolutely will continue to use this book as my baby develops.  Due to its very nature we are using it to learn about each stage as it is upcoming (and the first one that we didn’t have the book for). We will read it before each month starts to better prepare ourselves for what we will be dealing with. It gives helpful and relevant information for us as parents about how our child is developing and how, therefore, we can best interact, engage and respond with and to our child. The fact that it is broken down month by month makes it concise and clear to follow and stops any sense of figuring out where in the whole process things should be happening. The only slight minor flaw in this is understanding that not all babies/children develop at exactly the same rate and, therefore some things may be slower in taking place. But the fact that you have read about them beforehand at least means even if it slower in developing you are already well prepared. The writing was very clear and easy to understand, follow and where appropriate to apply. It makes it easy to read the relevant section for the age of your child. Really helpful. Would have been good to have a contents page to quickly find the page number of the next month you were on as it’s not the sort of book to leave a bookmark in. It gives lots of useful information on what development is taking place and will take place meaning you can be well prepared and as positively responsive as you can be as a parent. The ‘scientific’ parts are really helpful to read about and help give understanding to what is going on physiologically and emotionally as well. This sort of thing never gets talked about in ante-natal classes or by support groups etc. All you tend to get is the ‘are they doing this yet?’ questions without you really knowing why they should or shouldn’t be given their current age. Absolutely ideal for new mum and dad. It helps educate to their Childs growth in a much more helpful manner than much else of what they receive.  Each month we have been reading it to understand the upcoming developmental changes for our daughter. We have on occasion referred back to it to clarify if something we thought should be happening was actually supposed to be or not. I like how easy it is to read what is relatively in-depth information for general reading parents and the fact that it really tries to prepare you and give you understanding for each new month of this new journey. It is like having a support worker for all 12 months of the first year if the first three months are anything to go by. For £2.83 this book is a steal and so helpful. Why wouldn’t you want to buy it!! It is so much more cost effective than many other books that are on the market. Whilst it looks thin, the content is concise and helpful. Brilliant price! The general quality of the book is good though it does give the impression of a self-published title. The biggest let down to the quality and the only reason it didn’t get a 5/5 is the cover. The precis is having to be printed larger to cover a lot of white space, the image doesn’t stretch the full width of the page and it just looks amateur. The neutral white and teal are calm colours but the white in particular makes it feel like it wasn’t fully designed and finished. I would consider buying this.  It is a helpful and informative book that has aided our parenting over the first few months and will hopefully continue to over the next 9. Yes absolutely recommend. It is cheap which with all the costs of being a new parent is something that can’t be said very often and the value for money with the excellent content that we haven’t really been given elsewhere definitely makes it a product worth recommending. If it weren’t for the cover this book would absolutely be a 5/5 product. It is overall excellent, it just needs that professional, excellent outer design to really finish it off and make it look like the brilliant product it is inside. As has already been said, the content is excellent, informative and helpful. It covers areas of development in ways that other material or professionals haven’t which gives greater understanding to us as parents. The breakdown into months makes it eminently accessible throughout the period of the first year and though it is thin it carries a lot of punch and makes it easier to pick up and read when you are holding your baby or only have two minutes to try and process some information. The only thing that really lets it down is the cover. It would be great to have some recommendations by readers on the back rather than just blown up text and for the overall look of the cover to be more professional and perhaps for the image to be more targeted to development rather than just a young child. Whilst the title does make you want to read it and tells you what is going to be inside it would be better married with an image that does so likewise. Naomi Blackmore – Eowyn 11 Weeks

Short book, which shouldn’t take long to read. Front cover is quite plain. If I’m honest I don’t think the picture of the baby on the front cover is the most appealing. At first glance it could look like a book for children illnesses as it has quite a clinical feel. Great concept. The first year is very important and a quick glance of these months is a good idea. It’s my first child. He is 12 weeks tomorrow. It’s good. Straight to the point and easy to read. The paragraphs are obviously divided so makes reading clear. I did find it informative and helpful yes. As a new parent there is so much advice going around that it can be quite overwhelming. This book is good because it’s not so much advice as it is gentle recommendations whilst informing the reader of what to expect. Very helpful as a new mother I am not sure what to expect, certainly in a sense of psychology. It’s good to have an understanding of this kind of thing to then try and practise. I will continue to use this book as my baby develops. As it’s a short book and straight to the point it’s easy to read and invest. Some other books are huge and very overwhelming. Which mother has time to read so many pages of an evening?! It’s quick and easy to read but informative. Yes it’s well written. And as before, as it’s straight to the point and not complicated to read it’s easy to understand. I did like how the book was set out.  I like having split sections as it’s easy to break down/ remember what part you’re on. It’s nice to read things that will be coming up on my parenthood journey and be prepared. I have read several books on newborns in the lead up to my birth. But I imagine if this was a first book for an expecting parent it would be very informative and highlight many areas. This is an ideal book for a first time mum because it highlights important stages in their newborns life. It’s also small and not lengthy so not daunting to read. It’s not the sort of book you wouldn’t finish as you could read each section whilst on the toilet if you have a spare 10 mins! I would refer to this every few weeks really, when the next 4 weeks was about to begin. I liked its simple nature. It’s also so light so easy to carry around/ put in a drawer when not being used. Great value. I’d spend more on this, maybe £5. It informs as much as larger books in half the time. It’s not the greatest quality. The design looks a little cheap. The title isn’t on the spine of the book either so if it’s stood up with other books you wouldn’t know what it was. I would buy this. Great value for money, and very informative. I would recommend because its great value for money and very informative. It’s informative and simple to read. It’s nothing fancy though and doesn’t look like anything special so that’s why I’ve marked it down. Great experience. Enjoyed reading the book and learning about my babies’ development. Loved the fact it’s so short and can be put anywhere/ carries in my handbag if needed. I’ve started several baby books but not finished due to their size but this is great in that aspect. Amy Williams – Baby 12 Weeks

Looked a thin book and found the front cover was not appealing at all. If I had seen this in a book store I would have walked past it as I found the front cover bit clinical and not attractive at all. The idea behind this book is fantastic.  As a first time mum you are bombarded with so much information and this was short, sweet and easy to follow stages which was a great help to me. This is our very first baby. The introduction to first year was great and really helped me. I really love the month by month sections as helps me to understand what is happening and how my baby’s needs are changing. Now the child psychology section was really helpful.  I had no idea really what to expect and it was such a help to me to have an understanding of this and how to handle it. I have been bombarded by help; advice from family, friends etc. and this book has really given me and easy read and good information that I can put into practice.  Everyone has different views of how to bring up their own child and this was a lovely month by month guide not dictatorial like so many people are when telling you what to do.  I really do like this book and will continue to use as my baby develops and grows over the next 12 months. This is easy to read and take in the advice as it is written well and does not confuse you. It is so helpful to have the book set out in stages. This has helped me through the early stages and I will continue to check and action month by month sections as they become relevant to me and my baby. You have so many books, leaflets and read so much online I had read quite a lot prior to receiving this book so had been aware of most things.  I think this is the ideal book for a first time mum and I would purchase as a baby shower gift any day.  I would refer to this book as and when I needed more information for my baby and the latest stage of development. I liked how it was written and that is was informative and guided you through the baby stages. Superb value for money.  The only thing that lets this book down is the front cover and the quality.  If it was presented in a softer gentle baby way it would appeal to more and they would pick up off book shelf too as the front cover has to sell it to you and this does not.  I have already recommended to some of my friends that are due in January next year. Really found this book a joy to read and it has helped me so much being a first time mum. Eve Philpot – Owen 11 Weeks
