About the Author

Growing up in Alaska, Jennifer Stinson passed many cold, dark, winter days playing with imaginary friends, making up dance routines, and creating inappropriate illustrations. She created the original "Inappropriate Baby Book" for a pregnant friend. Friends and even strangers asked to buy copies for themselves, and soon a real bouncing baby book was born. She currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband, dog, and cat.

While this book is indeed cute and comical, I was a little suprised at how small it is. I thought it would be much larger and with many more pages.The book itself is only 7 1/4"x7 1/4"x 1/4". Inside the book has only 26 different things to write about or record, one of which is an envelope to hold something inapproriate. The book covers moms body when pregnant, labor, nicknames, 1st poop, belly button stump, 1st rectal thermometer, mucus, spit up, 1st person peed on, breastfeeding, breast leakage, 1st diaper changing, 1st solid food, 1st solid food poop, inappropriate things in mouth, 1st indigestible things in diaper, embarrasing outfits, 1st pooping/peeing in bathtub, farting in public, smearing, naked in public places, items in nose, habits, and 1st inappropriate word. While I feel the book could include more, I still think it's a great and original shower gift.

This one was a far cry from the usually stuffy baby books that ignore the fact that babies may be cute, but they're also stinky. I'm not sure my daughter will be entertained about the details I went into about why we called her "Chemical Megan" when she was just a month or two old, but I guess she'll forgive me. Good for a laugh. Pull it out when you find you're taking this whole motherhood thing a tad too seriously.

I came across this little book in a book store and had to have it. I've ordered several copies to give to pregnant friends since then. Now that I'm expecting my own little one, I look forward to keeping track of all the "inappropriate" things that happen as well as the usual "first word" type items in a regular baby book. As another reviewer said, which stories do you tell more - the sweet "first steps" stories or the "first indigestable thing found in the diaper" type stories.

This book is so much fun! I found it by accident when I was looking for a regular baby book and so glad I got it. We have been having a great time filling it in. When all the inevitable gross or embarrassing things happen to us, my husband and I can't help ourselves, laughing hysterically we say there's one for The Inappropriate Baby Book! It helps break the tension of having a newborn and definitely keeps you smiling. Everyone I have shown this to thinks it's fabulous! I would definitely buy this again for another child or as a baby shower gift. The only thing I can say that is remotely bad about it is that it is rather small & short (only a couple of pages) but then again let's face it those thick baby books never get all filled in anyway - who has the time! This is one book that will be treasured and years later when looking back at this book you'll still be laughing!

I first saw this in a bookstore, and the title made me curious. I ended up standing in the corner there laughing like an idiot. Then, I bought it for a friend who had a baby last May. It is a great "counterweight" to those cutesie baby books that they probably get from friends and relatives anyway.

I own two copies of this book (one for each child) and I LOVE it! I've given it many times over as a gift (perfect for second child or person who has everything) and the parents, as well as anyone else I've ever shown it to, always enjoy it. In fact 99% of them say something like 'this is great, I have to get one for such and such'.
Although some of the subject matter may be about gross events the drawings are anything but. They are made with a sense of humor and are tasteful as well as cute. In fact if the images were available for thank you cards, announcements, gift tags and children's clothes I am sure they would sell. Ms. Stinson not only has a sense of humor but is talented.
Truly you do brag about your child's first steps and words but over the years of their life what do you re-tell more? The fisrt step/word or getting candy some how stuck up their nose and spending 2 hours in the ER?

I have purchased this book for several pregnant friends and relatives who are not due for months! Finally, a real-life way to commemorate the first year of a child's life. This book has adorable, quirky illustrations and is lovingly written to give parents a chuckle every time they record a new memory. It's even a perfect gift for parents who have already received a traditional baby book!

This book arrived with a black mark on top of the pages - I didn't realize this was a bargain book, but the Amazon page does say that it could arrive with a mark. As this is a gift, I'll just have to explain that.

This book has some funny and inappropriate questions to answer about your new baby. They are the funny things that parents might like to remind their child as they get older. Examples of questions are:
The first person you peed on was:
The first item you got stuck up your nose was:
You were introducted to a rectal thermometer on this day:
The first person you spit up on was:
And so on.

There are about 24 different question pages. You could also tape photos on some of the pages, rather than write or draw. The questions are funny and definitely inappropriate for some people. Know your audience before giving it as a gift.
