Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Denay (The Hot Mom's Handbook), blogger and founder of the online community Hot Moms Club, focuses on the mom-to-be in this reissue with a snappy cover and design. Denay explains that a “hot mom” is a woman who is confident and empowered, and who embraces motherhood without giving up her sense of self. The single mom of a nine-year-old boy, Denay covers a wide range of subjects of interest to pregnant women, including healthy eating, baby showers, the latest trends in “babymoons” (a romantic, before-baby trip), and where to find a masculine-looking diaper bag for dad. Along with practical information on how to design an eco-friendly nursery and useful special sections called “bump on a budget,” “eco-minded mamma” Denay touches upon topics that may be of limited appeal, such as what to do about piercings and nipple rings (i.e., nix the latter if breastfeeding) or how to look gorgeous in a “HOT” nursing bra. Though readers seeking more solemn fare will no doubt quickly lose patience with Denay's chatty prose, many moms-to-be will warm up to the Hot Moms Club discounts and shopping tips, and others may simply enjoy indulging themselves with a breezy read before baby arrives. Pages for journaling dropped into the text seem out of place in this busy guide to shopping, staying “hot,” and pampering the mom-to-be. (Feb.)
