Rachel is the author of three practical, down-to-earth books, which utilise her experience as a baby care expert and baby sleep expert:
All three books are published in paperback by Lion Hudson. See more details on each book below.
One issue dominates the lives of many new parents…sleep. Why won’t their baby sleep? What is the best position to put him down in, and is swaddling the answer? Are monitors – or even dummies – a good idea? What about the mother’s need for sleep – or the father’s, and the rest of the family? And how does the situation change when the baby is older, say three to six months, or coming up for a year? What are the sleep needs of a toddler, or an older child? And how should parents manage when the whole routine is thrown into the air, because the baby is teething, or has been ill?
In this accessible and practical book, Rachel Waddilove gives the answers. In a clear, no-nonsense and straightforward way, she shows parents how to take back control. Babies need to sleep: adults need to sleep as well. Her advice will ensure peaceful nights for the entire family.
When I was a brand new mother, I was overwhelmed! Rachel has a calmness, and knowledge about babies and children, that not only helped me soothe and ease the journey for me son, but also for me! Her tips and advice are invaluable.
Rachel draws on her considerable professional and personal experience, to advise new and expectant parents on everything they need to know about looking after a baby in its first year.
Following the hugely successful, 'The Baby Book', 'The Toddler Book' follows a child's development between 12 - 36 months.
