Babies & Toddlers: The Sequel to Up the Duff
I loved Kaz's first book Up the Duff as it was so funny I couldn't put it down but found this one not to be so funny or informative. It doesn't cover enough on soilds or how to wean your baby off the breast etc. I would have found this book more useful prior to having a baby as an intro to parenting. After finding my way with my first child, I didn't feel this book had much to add, and thus did not finish reading it. Her sense of humour is great, but I think 'Up the Duff' is definitely the better of the two books. I like the author- have read her other book 'Up the Duff' and she has a funny wacky sense of humour. I like the little cartoons she disperses through the book It is a good intro to parenting, but doesn't have the same medically researched material as some other baby books.
