Child care

Sleepless nights spent with a crying baby while balancing between a mother and a mother-in-law who think they know best how to take care of your child. Between an ayah who never washes her hands and a boss irate about the lateness of an important presentation. A husband who, like you, is learning the ropes of parenting, while being silently miffed at your inattention. Sounds familiar? Naomi George has done it all--from discovering that breastfeeding does not necessarily mean maternal bliss to stalking her daughter in playschool to finding the perfect job--before she learnt to find the right balance between being a mother and being a woman. She offers tips from hard-won experience on how best to express milk, sleep-train a baby, handle sibling conflict and choose the best pre-nursery. More importantly, she tells you how to fight self-doubt and baby blues, and focus on a life other than mothering. Eat right, find time to get back your flat tummy and slim legs, take short breaks to romance with your husband: these are the things that will make you healthier and happier. A must read for every mother, who is yet to learn how to love and care for herself as she does for her little one.
