How To Feed Your Baby – From Birth to 24 months the Asian Way
Are you a brand-new parent of a newborn? Or do you know friends who are? Well, this is the book you should get!
Cecilia Koh, an experienced nurse and midwife, has written this book with Asian parents in mind. Based on her work experience in United Kingdom as well as in Malaysia, she has compiled information from both the Western and Asian cultures of feeding a child. It is an extremely informative book that will no doubt prove handy to Asian parents who have been brought up with the Asian culture, and yet today can usually only find information about child-feeding based on Western opinions.
Cecilia talks about her labour of love on ParenThots, a website that provides information for parents with young children:
In 2009, she decided to put her lifelong experience and knowledge into a book. Koh believes there is a need for such a book because most parenting books are Western-centric. What sets this book apart from all the other parenting books is that this book is for you if you don’t know what to expect when you’re expecting as an Asian parent.
“Although I’m a Western-trained nurse, I still believe in keeping the Asian traditions in perspective. What I’ve done here is combine the best in Western and Eastern practices – so it will be less confusing for new mothers.”
Tips from a Malaysian midwide

Here is an honest review from ParenThots:
This is not a dolled up book. At first glance, you might not even want to pick it up. The cover is not particularly attractive and the pages do not look impressive.
However, not picking it up would be the worst decision you make if you’re a new mother.
Pick it up, for although there aren’t beautiful studio photos inside and the layout of the pages looks a bit textbook-like, the content is irreplaceable and indeed a gem.
You won’t regret it.

Postscript: Why something so random on the website of a website solutions provider? Well, this is because I’ve been working for Cecilia Koh who is a dear friend. She was writing and self-publishing this book on her own. I helped her compile it into a book packed full of informative pictures that is easy to read.
