The Girlfriends' Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood

by

The Girlfriends' Guide to Surviving the First Year of Motherhood Cover

 

Staff Pick

Tired of all the parenting books with simplistic solutions and misleading information about how demanding the first year really is? Then this book is for you. The author is not a doctor or an expert — instead, she writes from her own experience as a mother of four. Lovine, in her own helpful and humorous manner, tackles the big issues, like how much sleep you'll miss or how hard it can be to breastfeed. Written with candor and wit, The Girlfriends' Guide honestly portrays just how difficult and challenging parenting can be.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With almost 200,000 copies in print, Vicki Iovine's Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy has become the book of choice for new mothers-to-be. Now the top-selling author, working mother of four, and nationally known columnist presents a comforting, witty, and candid guide to help new mothers through first-year concerns — from baby euphoria, to postpartum mood swings, to salvaging one's sex life, to competitive mothering, to fitting into that favorite pair of jeans.

Review:

"Following the formula that made The Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy a funny, honest and reassuring resource, Iovine has provided a sequel for new mothers....Even experienced mothers can benefit from this candid, supportive guide." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The author of the enormously successful Girlfriends' Guide to Pregnancy brings a mother's wisdom and a girlfriend's candor to the first book in a fresh new series of guides to motherhood. Readers will learn about baby euphoria, postpartum mood swings, salvaging one's sex life, and fitting into that favorite pair of jeans.

Synopsis:

When it comes to your new baby, everyone from Dr. Spock to Dr. Brazleton has an armful of advice. But no one's delivering any tips on how you can care for yourself. Now, four-time delivery room veteran Vicki Iovine answers your questions, calms your fears, and cracks you up as only a girlfriend can, with straight advice and hilarious observations on...

"Baby euphoria": Is it a mind-altering drug?

"Husband? What Husband?": Taking care of the big baby, as well as the little baby

"I Want My Old Body Back!": What you can fix and what you can't

"The Droning Phenomenon": The inability to discuss anything but your baby for more than thirty seconds

"Do I Have to Become Carol Brady?": Conquering your fear of being a less-than-perfect mother

"Competitive Mothering": Coping with know-it-alls, finger-pointers, and others who try to "Out-Mom" you

NOTE: Pausing to read this book may be the only selfish thing you do all year, since you'll have time for nothing else!
