Before Miriam Stoppard, and even before Dr Spock, there was little in the way of books with advice for new mothers. Many woman relied on their parents for information on how to look after their new baby. For those lucky ladies in the late Victorian and early Edwardian era, there was Mrs J. Langton Hewer's Our Baby for Mothers and Nurses. Full of useful information on everything from what to dress baby in to finding a baby's nurse, and from diseases to feeding, Our Baby was a veritable bible for expectant and new mothers. Our Baby is as useful today, with much information still valid to the modern mother, but can also be considered as a useful social document of how we used to live a century ago.
