The Blissful Baby Expert

The essential guide for happy parenting and blissful babies

There are few life experiences more joyful than becoming a parent, but caring for a newborn can be daunting, particularly when you're not sure whose advice to follow or what your baby really needs.

In The Blissful Baby Expert, Lisa Clegg draws on her own experience of motherhood and her professional life as a nanny and maternity nurse to share her essential, trusted advice. Gentle, reassuring and practical, her book guides you every step of the way from birth to two years. It includes:

- Equipment – what is essential and what is helpful
- Coming home – how to cope and bond in the early days
- Sleep – flexible plans to help your baby settle and sleep
- Feeding – guilt-free breast- and bottlefeeding
- Weaning – when to start and how to do it
- Q&As – common worries and what to do
- Development – what to expect and advice on toys

Every baby is different and this is why Lisa's book isn't a restrictive one-size-fits-all plan. Instead, she gives you the knowledge you need to trust your own instincts, build your confidence and learn to recognise what is best for your baby. With this knowledge, you'll enjoy calm, happy parenting and a blissful, settled baby.

Praise for The Blissful Baby Expert

“What's so fabulous about The Blissful Baby Expert is that Lisa's advice is enriched with the experience of working with hundreds of babies - including three of her own. A solid and sensible guide to help with the adventure that is parenthood.”

Faye Barker, ITV news presenter and mum-of-two

“Lisa works wonders! After just two nights of following her advice, my family had a peaceful night's sleep for the first time in months. I trust her because she understands babies - and parents, too.”

Paula Greenspan, journalist

“To me, The Blissful Baby Expert really is like a fairy god mother! The advice Lisa gave me was straightforward, well-explained and easy to follow. And everything she told me to do worked perfectly. Unlike some baby experts, she's approachable and patient, offering gentle reassurance but not in a judgemental way. Thanks to her I feel in control again and more importantly, I'm getting sleep! I've already recommended her to loads of my friends and will continue to do so.”

Rachel Tompkins, journalist

“The Blissful Baby Expert is a fantastic guide for new mums, especially in those early weeks when everything is a bit chaotic. As a first-time mum, the schedule suggestions and chapters on feeding and sleeping were essential reading. Lisa's knowledge and understanding of what matters to a new parent really shines through.”

Natalie Cullington, publicist
