Oh thank heavens for Wendyl Nissen! In these days of celebrity mothers who bounce back into size 6 jeans before their stitches have healed and fertility fascists who lecture mothers to be about pregnancy, breast feeding and sleep routines, Wendyl Nissen is the voice of reason, common sense and kindness. The only thing she’s firm about is keeping your baby away from completely unnecessary chemicals. She offers home made remedies and helpful sensible advice to all young mums - above all, forget about striving for perfection. This book is like having the perfect grandmother with you at all times and should be required reading for every mother to be. Brilliant.

An insightful read that has very much made me question a lot of the products I use around the house and on my skin. My one hesitation is some of the 'recipe's' given include products that might take a bit of hunting down. Well worth the time though!

I bought this book for my brother and his wife when they had their first baby.It was so full of sensible ideas and really was so full of things I learnt bit by bit.Having it in a book means they can read information and decide if they wish to use it without any pressure.

As always Wendyl talks a lot of common sense.. her recipes are cheap and non-toxic.. I will be picking one her books for Christmas to give to my Daughters-in-Law.. hopefully to get them to use non-chemical cleaners while they have young children around them. A wizard - thats what she is!

Mother's Little Helper! Why did this title make me want to read further??
God forbid I will ever need the help myself, but after reading your review I would definitely tell a young Mum to BUY AND READ!! We all need help at some time.........................50 years ago my firstborn arrived with Downs. In those days everything went to time and routine..............not a bad thing, but with two other little boys arriving soon after the first, my days - and nights, were soul destroying at times cos I always felt that maybe I wasn't quite up to scratch!! Who the hell cares?? As long as they are feed, changed and WELL LOVED, life goes on. (We did have an ANGEL grandmother on hand though). And they have all three grown to be Sons to be proud of. :-)
