All those who are a fan of Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay will not be disappointed. Naptime is hilarious, honest, and as entertaining as Wilder-Taylor's first book, and much more, because she has been in the trenches and is now actually reporting on the current state of "mommy affairs" from the "field." The result is a funny, honest portrayal of "toddler" issues. Subjects ranging from potty training, big-kid bed transition, psycho mommies, at-home mom world issues, married sex, mom body changes, and much much more are handled with the author's signature wit and style. The author clearly lets all those moms unsuccessfully aspiring to "perfect mommydom" that they can "let it go" and that they are NOT alone. Check out her mathematical equations in the Chapter entitled "Supermom" or "Superliar" - hilarious!

The author of "Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay" has scored a touchdown again for the Mommy crowd with her newest novel, "Naptime Is The New Happy Hour." She combines her razor sharp wit with some honest observations about how toddlers morph from sweet babies into sometimes intolerable and tantrum-filled creatures seemingly overnight.

Life with a toddler is chaotic, unpredictable, and absolutely not for the faint of heart, and this instant classic will be sure to help even the most confused parent navigate the sometimes choppy waters of toddler-hood, while making you laugh uproariously at her observations.

Wilder-Taylor does for the toddler-set what "The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy" does for the expectant mother: reminds you that you're not alone in any of this, not when Wilder-Taylor is holding your hand, making you laugh, and reminding you that what seems abnormal is really the new normal.

"Naptime Is The New Happy Hour" should be passed out in the hospital gift bags for all mothers (new or seasoned) because it's frank look at life with a toddler will prove an invaluable resource for years to come.

Thank you Ms. Wilder-Taylor for reminding me to laugh, relax, and have a (medicinal) drink, while I enjoy the ride.

just as "sippy cups are not for chardonnay" should be required reading for all moms with a newborn, so should this book be for moms with toddlers. this book is laugh out loud funny, and the author has a unique and endearing way of putting the roller coaster of life with a toddler into perspective. i cannot recommend this book highly enough!

I loved this book so much that I bought all of her books! I can't wait until someone I know gets pregnant so that I can give her these books as a baby shower gift as well! A must read for all moms!
Stefanie Wilder-Taylor is hilarious! I learned about her books through her podcast, For Crying Out Loud. I also LOVE her tv show on Nick Jr., Patental discretion.
I have a 2 year old and 6 month old. There are a lot if times where I wonder how am going to get threw this day without sleep. I once found spit up in my hair and honestly didn't know how long it had been there! Hours? Days?
These books and the podcast/tv show bring sanity into my life. So so funny!!!

Love the author's sense of humor. I read a criticism somewhere that said this author was cynical...I think the person who wrote that probably didn't have a sense of humor. Laughter is the best way to keep from letting a toddler make you insane and I think this book is perfect for any parent of a toddler.

Meh. This book was okay. Not as funny as the mommy blogs that I can read for free online. I bought this book based on other good reviews, but honestly, I think those reviewers were mostly her friends and family, or they just felt bad saying something for fear of hurting the author's feelings.

This book is OK but not what I was expecting as I just loved her book "Sippy Cups Are Not For Chardonnay." Her first book was so entertaining and relatable. This one is not the same at all. It is an OK read but not something I look forward to diving into at night.

This was seriously the funniest book I have ever read! I often found myself laughing out loud. The author does a great job of telling it like it is....I felt like I was having a conversation with one of my best friends. Anyone who has a toddler, has ever had one, or is considering having a baby MUST read this book!
