    For anybody who has a new baby this guide is a valuable
    resource.

    There is a lot of information and good practical tips such as
    explaining the right way to breast feed, writes Kathleen
    Franklin.

    One problem with this book is that it is very thick and would
    have been better spiral bound so that you don’t have to jiggle the
    baby and the book at the same time. Some of the pictures do not
    give you a clear idea what the writing is about and may be
    confusing for a person with a learning difficulty. Others may find
    that the writing is not big enough for people who have difficulty
    reading.

    The book is informative, especially for first time mums, whether
    they have a learning disability or not.

    Kathleen Franklin is vice-chairperson of Milton Keynes
    People First, a self-advocacy group for people with learning
    difficulties.
