Editorial Reviews

Review

"Babies are wonderful -- we all agree. Can we also acknowledge that bringing home that first bundle of joy is one of the hardest things you'll ever do? Dawn Dais bravely goes where other baby books don't in her wisecracking new release called The Sh!t No One Tells You. She spills the truth about everything from breastfeeding to getting along with your partner post-baby. Pregnant women who want an honest peek inside what's to come will be convinced to nap while they still can, and moms with kids will laugh out loud at Dais's quirky insights and strong opinions."
 ―
Parents magazine

"Having a baby is magical, amazing, and beautiful. It's also super hard and sometimes (especially on
sleepless nights) a seemingly impossible challenge. As the title, uh, delicately puts it, this book covers all the sh!t that no one tells you so you can actually survive your baby's first blissful/crazy year."
 ―
Woman's Day

"From poop to post-partum depression, she presents a no-holds-barred look at all of the changes and challenges that new moms and dads can face, along with the three little words every infant-toting parent wants to hear: It gets better."
 ―
Parade

"Let's face it: there's a lot of shit that happens when you become a parent that you have to find out for yourself, especially in that first year. This brilliant book will cover it all."
 ―
Scary Mommy

"
The Sh!t No One Tells You took me right back to those first weeks of new motherhood -- truly the most empowering and frustrating (and frightening!) of times. With heartfelt encouragement and insight, Dawn Dais is a must-read for first-time moms."
 ―
Rebecca Woolf, author of Rockabye: From Wild to Child

"Dais and her team of MOFLs (moms on the front lines) guide parents (moms, especially) through the first 52 weeks of your child's life with honesty, clarity, humor, complaints and encouragement on a myriad of important subjects from breastfeeding, endless crying and vaccinating to relationship problems, loss of freedom and inaccurate Facebook statuses ("OMG, I love my life!")."
 ―
Kirsten Ott Palladino, EquallyFamily.com

"Humorous revelations offer insight into a natural process that can and often does completely overwhelm the mother... An amusing and accurate examination of life with an infant."
 ―
Kirkus Reviews

Dawn Dais is a freelance writer and designer from Roseville, CA. Her previous books including The Sh!t No One Tells You, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Toddlers, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Baby #2 and The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women were published by Seal Press, have topped Amazon.com best-seller lists, and have been featured by countless TV and print media sources. Her uniquely sarcastic yet inspiring tone has entertained and guided an enthusiastic core of readers towards their various ridiculous parenting and athletic goals.

Dawn's most recent book The Sh!t No One Tells You About Pregnancy is a must-have guide for expectant moms (and their partners!) who are looking for some counsel, comedy, and camaraderie during their ultimate countdown to parenthood.

Dawn has also authored several gift books/items, including 102 Things to Do Before You are Due and The Overly Honest Baby Book, which is a compact, humorous gift book that offers the perfect keepsake for recording all the memories from your baby's first year - the good, the bad, and the flat-out frightening.

Other gift options courtesy of Dawn's brain are Coupon Books for new moms and Sarcastic Monthly Stickers to help track baby's first year of life in a funny way. ​

Dawn lives in Roseville, CA, with her two kids, two dogs, two cats, and the occasional mouse brought into the home by said cats. She is tired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and confirms you’re not a loon/monster/inadequate
By Amazon Customer on February 24, 2022
I’ve bought approximately 11,799 things on Amazon but this is my 1st review.
My baby is 4 months old and I got tired of other moms only telling the truth about how hard it is AFTER I brought it up….thus me taking the risk of sounding like a loon/monster/inadequate. Newborns aren’t easy and all new moms struggle, even if they won’t admit it. This book is hilarious, an easy read, absolutely true and has been very helpful to me as a first time mom to know I’m not the first mom to have my butt handed to me by a 6lb person!

For the 1 star ratings - maybe those folks don’t have a sense of humor or expected this book to be scientific/data based. Spoiler alert - it isn’t. However, it is a very real recap of how challenging new motherhood is.
I highly recommend!
