Overview

In a society over-saturated with books, magazines, blogs, reality shows, and YouTube videos aggressively conveying anyone and everyone’s latest advice on parenting, there still remains one important and unrepresented opinion…that of the baby!!!

Q: How do you breed contempt?
A: Have a baby.

Hey. It’s me. Your baby. Let me say, first off, that I love you. I do. You’re a great parent. You do a lot of things right. I know how devoted you are to me and how invested you are in hitting this whole parenting thing out of the playground. Okay. Now that I’ve given you the validation I know you need, let’s get a few things clear . . .

I’m not as innocent as you think I am. You don’t realize it because you’re blinded by my sweet good looks, but I am aware of way more than I can convey. I feel more than I can express. I have more going on in my soft, little baby brain than you could possibly imagine. Until now. The book you’re holding finally reveals the complexities and nuances of my life so far. From my point of view.

Unapologetic.

Unplugged.

Unswaddled.

Be warned . . . it’s not always adorable.

Absolutelky hilarious. I was reading at work - and laughing, no actually guffawing out loud. Let's just say it is a delightful read.

I purchased this book after reading an excerpt where the baby wonders what happened to his hands. After watching my daughter and daughter-in-law swaddle their babies like little burritos, I could not stop laughing when reading this baby's thoughts about being swaddled! The book has thoughts about every stage in a baby's life, and after purchasing copies for both girls, we constantly quote from this book, because it's all so true!!
