Overview

Lack of sleep, hormone overload, and a tiny human being that requires constant attention—it all conspires to extinguish a new mom's brain. What rises in its place is a brain that's fuzzy, and focused only on the basics: food, poop, and sleep. That, my friend, is a case of momnesia.

This hilarious how-to guide, full of coping tips, brain boosters, diagrams, and anecdotes, can help moms reclaim their brains. More important, Momnesia also maintains a mom's sense of humor as she leaves her car keys in the freezer, forgets her husband's name, or accidentally runs over the diaper bag (again).

Momnesia is a sweet and funny gift that's perfect for celebrating baby showers and congratulating new moms.

* Momnesia is packed with small bits of baby-themed humor, tips, quizzes, cartoons, lists, and more that empathize with the ups and downs of motherhood.

* It's a great companion book to the authors' work about breastfeeding, cleverly titled If These Boobs Could Talk.

* It's a fact: momnesia happens. In early 2008, CNN reported a study that found 82 percent of women claimed some type of absentmindedness during pregnancy and shortly after giving birth, including memory loss and an inability to concentrate.

    So true...

    This is a sweet, funny and oh so true book on the "amnesia" woman suffer after having a baby. I can attest because I just had one! A lovely lighthearted book, intended to entertain! A great baby shower book or post-baby gift to share with new moms who have free time (what's that??)
    I highly recommend!!
