If there's anyone who's got all the top parenting tips to hand, it's Danielle Lloyd.
The stunning star is already mum to Archie, 11, Harry, 10, George, 8, and Ronnie, 4, and is preparing to welcome her fifth child in the coming weeks.
As her due date nears, Danielle has shared some of her tips with OK! including a book by parenting expert Gina Ford, which many parents have also been keen to praise.
Author Gina has written various childcare books, giving new parents her best tips and tricks that she learnt in her former job role as a maternity nurse.
Danielle has praised her book, The Complete Sleep Guide For Contented Babies and Toddlers, which focuses on providing the best methods and tips to help newborn babies to sleep.

In the book Gina explains the various reasons for a baby refusing to sleep, as well as providing specific advice for each different scenario.
Centred around the belief that "the key to a good night's sleep for the whole family lies in teaching parents to understand the changing sleep needs of their growing baby", Gina sets out to debunk common myths surrounding babies' sleeping patterns.
She strongly advises that a baby should have a regular routine as it helps with creating a structured sleeping pattern, something which Danielle also agrees with.
She said: "Exactly! But I’m a little bit older now, so the lack of sleep will be a bit harder. But I think I’ll be fine. I’m a laid-back person, but when it comes to feeding I’ve always followed a Gina Ford book which has set feeding times.
"If you follow that, she says the baby should start sleeping through after 12 weeks, so I’m definitely going to do that again. Ronnie had really bad colic and indigestion problems so he was up 10 times a night for eight months. I’m hoping this baby will be easier!"
Danielle herself has revealed she's struggling with sleep as she opened up in her OK! column.
"My back is still really sore as well and I’ve got insomnia at the moment, so I’m not sleeping at all. Every time I settle down, I’m getting up every two minutes to go to the toilet, and then I can’t get comfortable again. I honestly look like I haven’t slept in weeks! In the next couple of weeks, until she arrives, I want to try and take it easy and take care of myself," Danielle wrote.
