Having a baby is easily one of the important milestones in a couple’s life. It’s also one of the most challenging! There are so many things you need to know (or rather, worry about): salt content in food, choking hazards, SUDDEN INFANT DEATH SYNDROME!
How are new parents supposed to know about these things?
- Your parents? They may have done a superb job raising you, but let’s face it, where did they get their knowledge from? Their OWN parents, 60 years ago?
- The internet? I love Google too, but are you really going to put the most important period of your little one’s life in Google’s hands?
- Your friends? How reliable is their knowledge? You’re not really going to raise your pride and joy based on what your friend heard from her sister’s neighbour’s aunt’s brother’s colleague are you?
Wouldn’t it be great if someone already collected all the information you need to know, and put it in a nice little convenient book? Well, since I’m writing this, obviously someone already did!
BabyBook! The Pregnancy and Baby Care Guide, Planner and Directory aimed at making sure parents are equipped with all the knowledge and services needed to properly raise their baby.
While its directory listings and savings coupons are mainly focused on Malaysian parents within the Klang Valley, anyone can benefit from the useful articles inside. The stolen contents page is listed below if you’re interested. 🙂
Dealing with babies is a very passionate industry, so everybody who’s put in an article or even advertisement has done so with the intention of ensuring quality care for both mother and baby.
The more expensive something is, the higher the quality right? Just kidding! The 200-page BabyBook sells for only RM18 at all major bookstores in the Klang Valley. Personally, I feel a greater sense of security that it’s being sold at major bookstores rather than being given out for free at shopping malls.
I’m always encouraged whenever I see or hear about new products and services catering to the childcare industry in Malaysia. It’s a huge industry, with vast potential for growth, but it’s up to both parents and service providers to innovate, demand quality, and spur that growth! Lend a hand by sharing this page!
