Savvy Auntie is the first go-to source for taking delight in the Savvy Auntie lifestyle, based on the popular website and written by America's foremost expert on modern Aunthood, Melanie Notkin. Whether she's an Auntie by Relation or Auntie by Choice, a Long-Distance Auntie or a Gay Auntie, America's fastest growing segment of women, the PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids), needs guidance and advice when it comes to the kids she adores. Why should their parents know all the secrets?
Savvy Auntie empowers sophisticated, educated, and independent aunts to connect with their inner-Savvy Auntie by sharing everything she needs to know from the minute she discovers her sister or friend is expecting, to confidently lending a hand with a newborn niece or nephew, to keeping up with the walking, talking growing-oh-so-fast bundles of energy, while coping with the occasional meltdown—including her own. Notkin provides a wealth of essential information and insight on child development, health and well-being, and spending 'QualAuntie' time with nieces and nephews. Plus she shares tips for baby showers, baby booty, birthdays and big kids.
Notkin also addresses the ultimate concern for the modern aunt: to have children or not, and if so, how? She offers savvy advice on living life to the fullest no matter the choice or circumstance. Chock full of sidebars, fun facts, and helpful anecdotes from every day Savvy Aunties, Savvy Auntie is the indispensable handbook for Aunties of all ages, and for every single, married or partnered woman navigating the ultimate celebration of life: children.
As an Aunt of three nephews and one niece, I find this book to be incredibly beneficial.
The author not only gave great information but made the book FUN, easy to read, interesting and shares so many great tips and ideas that aunts can use!
And reading the "Savvy Auntie" book was like taking a wonderful trip down auntie memory lane.
Meh. This is written for women who have never been around children at all. I'm well aware that a crying baby is unhappy about his food/diaper/sleep situation.Published 1 month ago by Aspen A Taylor

Unfortunately, I was disappointed in this book and felt it lacked depth. I should have reviewed it more thoroughly before purchasing it. Lesson learned!Published 12 months ago by GKirma, MSW, LCSW, BCD
