I ordered this book for research on a writing project since my kids are now in their twenties and I needed updating.
While it may not help a new mom who is SERIOUS (about being serious about being an educated and informed wonderfully loving mother)...this book is a FABULOUS companion piece that will help her NOT BE SO SERIOUS.
It is irreverent (like Annie Lamott's "Operating Instructions", it makes fun of stuff I've done and stuff I've watched others do and wondered, "are they right and I'm wrong...or I'm right and they're wrong". I completely get Wilder-Taylor's love and devotion for her daughter (just like Lamott's for her Sam). They just know how to also be FUNNY!
I wish I had both of these books when my boys were babies!
I have been laughing out loud -- so much so that my husband hunts me down to make sure I'm okay. Bravo Stefanie Wilder-Taylor!
You have offered A LOT of really practical, relevant, honest and thoughtful information here. AND YOU'RE FUNNY.
I don't see that you're being judgmental at all. If anything, I'm getting over and over again that your bottom line is: there is no ONE way and we all find our own way in this new mom adventure. (and we're still learning)
I'm ordering a copy right now for a new mom of a one-month old because you share the truth and you make us laugh. And she will feel relieved that she can pick up your book - randomly open to any page - and receive HELP along with LAUGHTER. Both count!
It did bother me that other reviewers have said that the author makes light of post-partum depression, which she most certainly does not. I'm not sure if maybe they just assumed that, since it is a "funny" book and the subject of PPD is addressed, she must have been disrespectful. To the contrary, in the small portion in which she mentions beyond-baby-blues, she says that if you have these feelings RUN, don't walk, to your doctor and get help. There is no joke about harming yourself or your baby, as there shouldn't be.
I take this book with me when I hit the salon for a pedicure and I swear I've been asked ten times what I'm reading that makes me laugh so hard. Warning: There IS cursing, which I find well-placed and funny, but others may find offensive. She also DOES make light of certain subjects, which some people obviously find offensive or hurtful. I thought it was hilarious and a light, easy read for us new moms who would like to read about babies or pregnancy but are tired of hearing the same things from well-meaning strangers. Five stars.
