This DVD was fantastic. It was very easy to follow and the presenters in the DVD
were easy to relate to and were very knowledgeable.

It takes you through
all the steps of bringing your baby home, such as car restraints, hiring baby equipment, baby massage and feeding.

It also had very handy
sections on reflux, teething and starting solids. I felt that all
subjects on the DVD were covered very well and gave me great information, which would be especially beneficial for first time parents.

I think the 3 DVD's, (Pregnancy, Birth and Baby) are a fantastic idea. Very well suited to all parents, especially those expecting for the first time and
are unable to get to antenatal classes, and also for parents who haven't had a baby in a number of years.

I thoroughly enjoyed the DVD and so did my husband.
