Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just what every new mother needs--100 charming and useful step-by-step how-to's, advice, and stories, culled from mothers and grandmothers throughout the ages.

As a first-time mother, Erin Bried found she had countless things to worry about. She realized she didn't want to follow the latest trends—she wanted real, time-tested advice about how to calm her baby when she cries, get her to burp after she eats, and change her diapers as quickly as humanly possible.

So she sought out real experts: mothers who've raised extraordinary children and whose simple advice has stood the test of time. Women like Esther Safran Foer, mother of novelist Jonathan Safran Foer; Elaine Maddow, mother of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow; and Sunchita Tyson, mother of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, among others.

Based on what she learned from these amazing moms, Erin shares time-tested ways to calm a teething baby, make homemade baby food, knit booties, lull a baby to sleep, and so much more. Written with charm, heart, and just the right amount of sass, and filled with retro illustrations, How to Rock Your Baby is the perfect gift for new mothers everywhere.

Praise for How to Rock Your Baby:

"Funny, clever and incredibly useful. It's filled with timeless wisdom and advice about... everything. A must-have for new moms!"

--Alison Sweeney, author of The Mommy Diet

"The instruction manual we’ve all been waiting for."

--SELF magazine

"...Bried's buoyant, conversational, and practical text will surely be a welcome addition to any family welcoming a newborn into the fold."

--Publishers Weekly

Bried "brings a breezy, energetic tone to her material. (For the hospital, she advises, pack 'undies so baggy, they’d embarrass you under any other circumstances.') This makes her book feel less like a manual and more like a long, insanely thoughtful letter from a friend who’s made it to the other side."

--BUST magazine

"Erin Bried tapped into a wealth of experience."

--The Boston Globe

"How to Rock Your Baby has tips, humor and some surprises...Highly useful, Bried’s book is a fun read and yields time-tested techniques."

--The Oregonian

"No-nonsense advice and instruction from 10 remarkable and noteworthy mothers."

--Anchora magazine

"You’ll find common sense wisdom on everything�all written in an upbeat and helpful voice. Because one more thing we new moms need? More upbeat, helpful voices."

--Coolmompicks.com

"The perfect book to inform, educate, and take the edge off all the pregnancy stress."

--Mommieswithstyle.com

Review:

"Bried (How to Sew a Button) offers an eclectic mix of time-tested advice in this practical guide for new and expecting parents. Folk remedies, like eating pineapple or eggplant parmesan to induce labor, are included alongside more practical quotidian information, such as how to launder baby clothes and where to find parenting support. Bried's interviews with myriad moms (including Jonathan Safran Foer's mother, Esther; and Rachel Maddow's mom, Elaine) yield information that will guide parents through all the early stages: expecting, delivering, nourishing, comforting, surviving, remembering, and perhaps most importantly-enjoying. Each chapter is arranged into brief, manageable sections with charming titles (e.g., 'Go Bananas: How to Make a Sock Monkey' and 'Feel Kneaded: How to Give a Baby Massage'), and contains step-by-step instructions, as well as adages from moms who made it, including the author's own, Claire, who suggests that 'If she falls, wait that split second. If her reaction is nothing, just say, "Oopsie!" If she did hurt herself, scoop her up, fix it, and kiss it.' Though by no means a scholarly work, Bried's buoyant, conversational, and practical text will surely be a welcome addition to any family welcoming a newborn into the fold. "
