Not one for new first-time parents!
22 October 2006 | by (Dundee, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This hilarious little comedy follows the first year of a baby's life, giving an insight into what he's thinking in a 'Look Who's Talking' manner. The baby's parents are delighted with their little arrival but they are completely oblivious to the fact their newborn piece of perfection is determined to show them (and their poor cat!) who's in charge now, keeping a tally of his victories along the way. Between making his mother paranoid by crossing his eyes only when she is around, tormenting the cat and showing Dad he won't be seeing any action in the near future, Baby is definitely winning this battle of wills!

Based on the novel by Simon Brett, 'How to Be a Little Sod' probably is quite accurate since babies, despite or even because of their angelic appearances, know exactly how to manipulate adults into giving in and they certainly do bring a sense of chaos to their parents' lives. The book is funnier and I'd highly recommend it to everyone (except those planning a baby in the near future!) but this series nicely compliments it.
