Today’s Mom: Essentials for Surviving Baby’s First Year (Giveaway)

This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #40: Genevive Larson
Congratulations!

Even though Baby Bug is only 3 years old, it feels like a lifetime since there’s been a baby in this house. I kind of feel like I”m having a baby for the very first time. That’s why I was so interested in reading Today’s Mom: Essentials for Surviving Baby’s First Year by Mary Ann Zoellner & Alicia Ybarbo.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Being a new mother can be extremely nerve-racking and exhausting, and many moms find parenting advice, comfort, and humor on the Today show. Now all that advice and more is collected in Today’s Moms, a one-stop guide to everything a new mother needs to know about her baby’s first year, from the best breastfeeding products to reclaiming fun and intimacy with her partner after the baby. Full of behind-the-scenes stories with moms and experts, Today’s Moms provides the most up-to-date news and information with easy, entertaining ways to help mothers keep their sanity.

MY REVIEW

After reviewing this book, I think all new mothers could really benefit from the valuable tips and advice that is shared here. It’s written in an easy-to-read format and broken up into various subjects so you can easily find what you’re looking for.

What I really liked was the variety of topics covered. They include everything from nursing and sleeping options to getting your life back again and child care choices. They even have a handy daily diary sheet to help you keep track of all the things that goes on in your baby’s day. I know that was something I needed since I was so sleep deprived!

However, the absolute best part is that it’s written by people who have been there. Real parents with real parenting advice. And not only from mothers but from fathers as well. It gives you a real eye opener to what both parents are going through during this unpredictable yet wonderful time of their lives.
