Loved it!

A must-read for all new moms! The honesty is refreshing and most new mother's will related to what the author is going through.

I want to like it, buts it's so inaccurate and negative about breastfeeding. Most of the writing is down to earth and funny.

I thought for sure I would love this book. And actually I really want to love this book because Stefanie is so funny, crass and down to earth. Not to mention it got some really great reviews. Almost every page made me actually laugh out loud hysterically. MY problem wit...
I thought for sure I would love this book. And actually I really want to love this book because Stefanie is so funny, crass and down to earth. Not to mention it got some really great reviews. Almost every page made me actually laugh out loud hysterically. MY problem with this book is I really don't like the way she handled the breastfeeding and doula chapter. Which was chapter 2 I believe, kind of jaded the whole thing for me. "whether you breastfeed or not, you need to be prepared to encounter the Tit Terrorists" or "If you are going to breastfeed, take lesson from experienced folk:You and your baby should work out a 'safe' word to deal with this kind of self imposed pain" And other things like "If you want to stop breastfeeding you must never call the LLL, they keep you on the line for a creepy amount of time and you almost think they are trying to trace the call to dispatch a lactation consultant right over" That said, if it wasn't for that chapter I would absolutely LOVE this book and give it to all my pregnant friends. I don't have anything against people who choose formula but, I just don't think something that portrays breastfeeding so inaccurately and negatively is something I would give to a first time mama.

    Saved my sanity!!!

    I read this book when I was at my wits end to give me a break between all the Dr. Sears, Spock, and Love & Logic and Babywise and breastfeeding books etc. etc. It made me laugh so hard I cried and put everything into perspective. It's like I had my best friend giving me a peek behind the curtain of new mommy reality. It was after reading this book that I quit my moping and gloomy overly scheduled demeanor and set out to take this role on whole heartedly with a smile on my face... because of all the laughing! I recommend for all new moms and a great shower gift!!!

    This was funny

    I thought this book was funny and informative. I could relate to a lot of what she was saying. It was nice to read from someone like me.
