Book Chapters Layout:
The chapters of this book are very very organised. The table of contents is very useful to jump to different chapters. Its not necessary that you read this from the start to finish, you can always start at any chapter you want to. In my opinion the person who wrote the book must be very organised and wants to make it easy for parents to read the book and use it as a guide

Chapters contents:
Not everything you read in this book is worth knowing, some info they provide is way too "common sense" for you to miss it. But they state it in the book anyways, some parents can be very naive. I wished they would elaborate on some techniques and methods especially on the breast feeding techniques for c-section mom. In my opinion it was way too short. The best chapters are on baby sickness, diseases (comes with pictures), first aid chapters and baby's growth and milestones month by month

Tips in the book:

Some tips are worth noting, like how to make your own home-made baby wipes if your baby is sensitive or has allergy to store bought baby wipes
