An introduction to the strange world of the postnatal, a world of strong emotions and revolting excretions, the sublime and the ridiculous.
Is it normal to think random strangers are trying to abduct your precious first born?
What do you actually do with a baby all day, anyway?
Will you frighten your childless friends if you attempt to raise any of this with them?
Babies: The Mumsnet Guide is an introduction to the strange world of the postnatal, a world of strong emotions and revolting excretions, the sublime and the ridiculous. It is the gathered up, boiled-down wisdom of thousands of mums and the occasional dad who have posted on mumsnet.com since its launch in June 2000 about everything to do with life after baby.
From thoughtful advice about breastfeeding, colic and getting some sleep to debates about parenting gurus and the best form of childcare, by way of a fair bit of gore and the odd bit of flagrant silliness about postnatal vaginal circumference and baby names, Babies: The Mumsnet Guide contains the advice, thoughts, experiences and random burblings of thousands of parents. Parents who have done a lot of the worrying for you already.
Created nine years ago by two new mothers, Mumsnet has become an 'internet phenomenon', according to the Sunday Telegraph. It has over 100,000 registered users, and 250,000 monthly users, and its members are loyal, active and passionate about the site. Fans of Mumsnet include India Knight, Prime Minister Gordon Brown, the Chief Rabbi Jonathan Sacks to name but a few.
