Today is Rory’s two month check up at the doctors. I don’t know where the time has gone but my little baby now weighs 12lbs 13oz and is 25inches tall! With our upcoming trip and Rory still waking up in the middle of the night and not eating very much, I had a ton of questions for the Doctor. After I’d asked her the fiftieth question she politely asked whether I’d read their book ‘The New Basics: A to Z Baby and Child Care for the Modern Parent’. I admitted I hadn’t and promptly purchased a copy. I’ve been riveted since – great, sensible advice that makes me feel confident rather than anxious. A must for every new parent.
