Format: Paperback
How coincidental that I was offered to review this book a week before Josie was born. I thought that this was just going to be another "What to expect when Expecting" but was very pleasantly surprised to find that this was a quick, informative read for anyone who is expecting. This book covers all topics like pregnancy, to birth, to nursing, even potty training. Although my personal favorite chapter was the chapter titled "Every Child is Genius, not just yours" which gave great insight into not only that is OK to be proud of your child, but to realize that everyone is as proud of their child as you are of yours. I thought that this would be a great gift to give any expecting friend on her journey to motherhood. It is filled with great tidbits of information but not overly medical in nature. I also liked that there were always fun, is published by by parenting expert and [...] contributor Jen Klein it has a lot of useful websites that a new mom or mom to be could use to her benefit. Being that this is a nice quick read (I read it the first four days I was home from the hospital) I would say it is a must for every expectant mom!!

What Jen Klein has done with The Mommy Files is just give you the brass facts without making you feel like you are a total idiot in one of the most important change to your existence.

The book reads like loving advice from your best friend.

Question, answer and inside secret advice all there in one handy, lightweight, paperback book that you will be able to throw easily in your pocketbook to read whenever you need advice.

My favorite sections happen in the middle of the book with The Mommy Mafia and Playgroups are for Moms not Children.

So true!

By Poppy J. on May 12, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is written for new moms and mothers who want to learn more about their babies. The author hasn't forgotten anything. She starts at the first moment that the pregnancy is discovered, and moves along to when the child is independent and ready to explore the world on his or her own.

The book reminds new mothers that they can't do it all, and should not be so hard on themselves when they come home with their new babies from the hospital. The book explores advice on working outside of the home, developing a network of other mothers through playgroups, and also advice on how to manage time during the day. It is important to create time for herself as a new mom, and this is often put aside, because new mothers are absorbed with their babies, naturally.

The book offers simple advice for managing it all, and shares "She Knows Secrets" for the reader to note when waiting for the birth and managing the hectic days afterwards. For example, the author speaks in authoritative voice on the issue of cosleeping and discipline, and the readers will get many sides of the issue from the book - so that they can make the best decision for their families.
