This book seriously made being a new mother a little easier... easier to deal with and easier to laugh at. It made me realize that in life it's better to laugh than to cry. This book was given to me as a gift after the birth of the baby and I absolutely loved it. My husband and I would stay up (when the baby was breastfeeding) to read this book. I eventually lost it but loved it so much that I ordered 2 more copies- one for myself and another for my sister that just had her own baby. It's so good that I may just go ahead and buy a few more just to have in stock for future pregnancies (friends, family, etc.).
