Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Marrit Ingman became a mother on February 27, 2002. She went crazy—also on February 27, 2002. Her journey began with a plate of carne guisada and led to an emergency cesarian, ankyloglossia, colic, gastroesphageal reflux, eczema, Zoloft, Paxil, peanut allergy, suicidal ideation, hepatitis, and a whole lot of pie. Ingman documents the agony of elimination diets and tearful, sleepless nights with the same candor and humor she does the ecstasy of mamas night out and her own invention, the Playgroup Drinking Game.

Ingman addresses her own postpartum depression, her feelings of inadequacy, and her self-admittedly ridiculous perception that her infant son truly hates her. With irony, sarcasm, and wit, Ingman paints a portrait of parenthood far unlike the popular image of glowing bliss. She recounts the painful and difficult moments of babyhood with her colicky, difficult child with a mix of humor and anguish that reflects the transformative process of becoming a parent—the compromises, struggles, useless advice, and failed expectations.

BarrettChilds, September 3, 2008 (view all comments by BarrettChilds)
This memoir explores Ms. Ingman's tough post-partum haul, as a new Mom suffering from a baby with multiple mystery-issues and with her own post-partum depression. I found this book useful on several levels. On the most personal level, I found it instructive to read it after my own first year of BABY was over. I too had a tough first year, though without the depression that Ms. Ingman suffered. However, her experiences and reflections helped me make sense of some of the feelings I had that first year. On another level, Ms. Ingman's exploration of post-partum depression on a societal-level was illuminating. I appreciated her call-to-arms (so to speak) asking mothers to seek common ground and to be supportive of one another, rather than to seek out flaws in others. Also, Ms. Ingman is pretty raw and funny. I really recommend this one, especially to those mothers and fathers who found the first year of BABY to be a real challenge. This author has a hip, singlular voice that I encourage you to experience.
