If you’re about to have a baby, you need this book.
That is not a sales tactic. It’s a fact.
Being a new mom is hard. In the beginning, you’re learning new things every minute of every day. It was only when I had my second baby that I realized how much easier it could be. Yes, easier. And it’s not because I suddenly had it all together. The difference was that all of the day-to-day baby stuff suddenly seemed like common (mom) sense.
I mean, did you know that… • If your baby pulls off the breast or bottle, you should burp him immediately? • If poop-splosions start happening regularly, you need to go up a diaper size? • If your infant is suddenly calm and quiet, you shouldn’t mistake it for actual peace and quiet—and should instead get her to bed ASAP to avoid a meltdown?
These are the types of things that you learn only after becoming a mom. And that’s what’s in this book: 107 super practical tips that all of your mom friends—and the parenting books—somehow forgot to mention.
So, expectant and new moms: Don’t wait for Baby #2 to do it better. Here’s what you need to know right now to make your life a whole lot easier.
