Before I became a Mom, I never anticipated all the questions, worries, and concerns I’d have after bringing baby home from the hospital. Babies do not come with instruction manuals.
I thought that parents had built-in programming that automatically helped us through all the different stages of our child’s development, told us what to do when they cry, make us know just what to do in any circumstances that we should meet. No. It isn’t that easy.
There were nights when Little One would cry and would not be consoled. The sleep deprivation and non-stop crying just about did me in. I had no idea that she was cutting teeth. When I discovered that she was getting her first teeth, I still didn’t know what to do. I did what I thought was the best thing to do: Consult our family doctor, ask all my mommy friends for advice, ask family members, check out online resources…and I even sought help on Facebook! Back then, my Facebook status updates were mostly of the “OMG! She won’t stop crying!” or “Help me! I’m going bonkers!” nature.
I wish I had Lianne’s Quick Guide back then! Lianne has written a series of quick guide booklets for all the things you want to know and need to know in a pinch! They’re perfect for carrying in your purse or diaper bag. They’re compact and designed for busy parents on the go.
I was sent a copy of the Babies 0 to 6 Months quick guide for review purposes. She covers common encounters that parents experience in their babies’ first 6 months. What I like is how small the booklet is! I know that sounds weird, but when I was a brand new mom, I didn’t have the time to look up big, thick parenting books. I needed the answers right then and there. Of course, the book doesn’t give you answers, but offers tips and helpful advice from another mom’s experience and point of view.
You can find Lianne on her blog as well. She’s a phenomenal woman – so great to correspond with.
I am really looking forward to Lianne’s First Aid for Kids booklet! That is something I will definitely be carrying in my purse at all times!
