Reader Reviews

“If you’re sick of lengthy books that go on and on about the theory but with no actual tips in sight, this is the book for you! This book breaks it down into extremely digestible, easy steps that you can actually easily customise for your own issues. Helped me out with my toddler lots, esp during her fussy meal times. 100% recommend”
