The best gift I was given when preg­nant with my first child was Shar­lene Poole’s Baby Whis­per­ing. It of­fered prac­ti­cal, use­ful ad­vice, sup­ported by rou­tine ideas, tech­niques for swad­dling, burp­ing and in­tro­duc­ing solids. It was never far away, and while it was put away for a while, the ar­rival of baby num­ber two saw it brought back out. Its big­gest down­side was that it only cov­ered the first year of baby’s life. I was on my own from there – un­til now.

Tod­dler Whis­per­ing is the highly an­tic­i­pated com­pan­ion to Baby Whis­per­ing and is guar­an­teed to be­come just as suc­cess­ful. Di­vided into two age groups: 1–2½ and 2½–5, like its pre­de­ces­sor it cov­ers rou­tine, sleep­ing and eat­ing as well as the big chal­lenges of toi­let train­ing, sib­ling ad­just­ment and be­hav­iour man­age­ment.

A prac­ti­cal, easy-to-read ‘man­ual’.
