Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Leeds follows her successful One Year to an Organized Life with advice on preparing for a new addition to the family. From personal finances, junk drawers, and birth plans, to building a feng shui nursery, telling the office about your "condition," and creating a routine around bathroom cleaning, Leeds covers it all. Week-by-week tasks provide clear, realistic goals for the determined mother-to-be, and some weeks involve simply thinking about organizing or creating routines. The emphasis here is on the difficult choices that have to be made, and the logistics behind making them. For instance, indispensible advice about a baby's material needs will save new mothers from last-minute runs to the mall. Leeds even discusses how to maintain or grow relationships—with family, friends, and other mothers. An oft-overlooked aspect of creating a family is the personal conflicts that can result; too many mothers realize that friendships and romance are the first to go. But Leeds offers strategies to ensure that new parents maintain their friends—and their love life. Leeds will likely change the thinking of many a wood-be parent: being organized is actually far easier than the alternative. (Feb.)

Library Journal, starred review, 2/17/11
“With her advice, future mothers and new moms will walk safely toward the Zen path of type-A personality nesting. A great gift and a great collection addition; enthusiastically recommended.”
 

BookPage, May 2011 “With impressive thoroughness, the authors pay attention to every possible topic…most of which new parents will not have thought of yet. Luckily, One Year does it for them.”

Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine, July 2011 “If you need a serious organizational overhaul (or just some quick tips), this is the book for you.”

    I wish I could have flipped this book in the store. If so, I probably wouldn't have bought it. Even with the preview online, it was hard to tell the content. I was hoping for something with more checklists and To Dos. While there are some questions and lists to get you to think about stuff, the rest is really all common sense. I'm already a fairly organized person and even though this is my first pregnancy, this book didn't really tell me anything new or revealing. In fact, the way the author describes some people I am shocked that they are able to make it through life let along raise a kid. If you have absolutely no organization skills, then this book is for you. If you know where your keys are on a regular basis and pay your bills on time, you probably don't need this book.
