New Mom or new BABY can't be chosen as best. Nor can one pick out a favorite New Mom story from the 101 inspirational Chicken Soup real, true anecdotes from the collection put together by this favorite anthology publication. And who will not find delight in reading about new life, mostly from the new mother's point of view? You will find emotional tugs in the pages of this one. Chicken Soup for the Soul is the perfect gift for the expectant mother, or the mom just after the new arrival. Perhaps she'll find a moment when her child is resting, and she can slip in one or two stories quick. Better yet, the new DAD can read her a story while she nurses the new little one.

I must admit to a favorite due to personally knowing Nikki Studebaker Barcus, the author/mother who attends church where my wife and I do. We're also good friends with her parents. She's a good writer, and this story is about her first-born. "Noah to the Rescue" is a short story that gets top billing in our house, but honestly, many other stories are equal in value and fun reading entertainment. Tissues may be needed for some heart-warmed tears or laugh tears. Better yet, use a cloth diaper; they're coming back into use.

OK, true, this Chicken Soup-New Moms collection is well beyond Nikki's true story. All stories are true, making them even more fun. I'm waiting for my 10th grandchild to be born, a he, and it's mom and dad's first-born; so perhaps this is a perfect baby shower gift for them. A perfect doctor's office waiting room book. A gift for almost any woman, even though it could be considered family-friendly.

I've read many Chicken Soup for the Soul collections. This is my first written for New Moms. But now I've learned, it not just for new moms, its by some new moms, related to new moms, honoring new moms, but actually enjoyable reading for everyone, even retired old grandfathers.

Even though I am not a first time mom, I liked this book. It is full of great stories about being pregnant, breastfeeding, sleep, doubts, adoption, infertility, toddler years and more! There really is at least one story that every mom can relate to. As I have two kids and am pregnant, I forgot things and feelings of having a new baby and I loved reading stories from other moms. Reading other mom's stories just make me laugh, smile, feel like I'm not alone and hopefully learn from their strength. There are some sad stories, but they are real and show strength and courage that only a mother can have! This book would be great for new moms, a baby shower gift, or even a mom like me who already has kids!

This book is a perfect shower gift for the friend expecting a child. I think it is more appropriate for a first mom, but I still really enjoyed the stories and could relate to so many of them even though I already have children.

Format: Paperback
This book is full of wonderful and inspirational stories. The moms cover every topic from pregnancy to newborn, postpartum and adoption - and everything in between! Each story is written with blunt honesty, which makes it relatable to the moms reading. I downloaded the book on my Nook, and whenever I have a spare few minutes I read a couple of the stories. I have 3 children, and I love this book! I highly recommend it to all mothers, and it is my new go-go gift for baby showers!

This book contains my first published story of 2011, "Sixteen Pink Lines", about my struggle with infertility. I love the variety of stories in this collection. This is a great gift idea for expectant or new moms.

I gave this to my two young daughter-in-laws for part of their baby shower gifts. Both have commented on little articles and stories. They said the easy reading format is perfect for them as time is so important to them. Love the stories.
