Supernanny Shares Her Secrets

Jo Frost is offering new parents advice before they even need a naughty mat. The beloved no nonsense nanny who straightens out wayward families on ABC's Supernanny, is now gifting her wisdom to mamas and papas-to-be so they can navigate their way through everything from feeding to teething to setting up routines. And, the parents don't need to star on the small screen to cash in on the goods, they just have to hit their local bookstore. To hear about her book,


In Jo Frost's Confident Baby Care: What You Need to Know for the First Year From America's Most Trusted Nanny ($11), the woman who remained calm even when attacked by wee ones, guides parents through the tough parts of their tot's first year and their changing needs.

An ABC article published an excerpt from the book. It said:

Whether this is your first or your fifth, when you have a baby, you're about to go on an emotional journey that is as unique as the two of you and this child. As any parent of more than one will tell you, no two babies are alike, and no two first years are alike for you or your baby. You may be full of intense feelings of love, or it may take time to bond with your newborn. You may get postnatal depression, or sail right through the hormone changes. You may feel exhausted and overwhelmed, or calm and joyful. Or all of the above on any given day.

Would you buy her book?

Kim it's not sad. Babies are complicated complex beings sometimes and it can be especially hard for first time parents. To be totally honest sometimes my husband and I feel like we haven't got a clue as to what we're doing. Especially the first month. But we do our best and any extra help would be greatly appreciated.

While what she is sharing is not groundbreaking info and quite common sense, the more kids you have the harder it is to remember to do all these things right. Watching her show is the same to me as watching the dog whisperer. Such simple little changes make everyone so much happier. I like her.

Love her. I Tivo Supernanny every week and tell my husband that is is "mommy school." I've gotten a lot of good tips from just watching her and I have her book (not this one) out of the library now.

I would have answered no to buying the book, but I like the tone and sentiment of the excerpt here. I'd look it over.

It's sad that people need anyone to tell them common sense things about raising their own children.

I'd buy it. I'm hoping she'll keep writing a whole series - I want to hear her views on how to parent older kids too.

Yes! I like to think that I'll raise my child "right" and not have to ever be in a place where I would want to call her- but the truth is, you never know. And since I don't have any babes, I think I'll want all the tips I can get =)
