Who would read this thing?

The truth is, I don't know that I really recommend this book as a maternity or baby shower gift for a first time mom. It's kind of like telling a pregnant lady about your horrible birth experience. It just scares and/or annoys her. Not that helpful.

BUT--I do think it would be a really good postpartum gift. Whether or not a mom is in Boob Hell, postpartum is a lonely time. Another postpartum mom could be comforting company, even if she's a self-obsessed psycho. Postpartum moms who are nursing are usually in some state of boob discomfort and can relate at that level too.

Most important, a postpartum mom needs LOTS OF GIFTS; way more than she needed when she was pregnant, although she didn't know it then. Buy her fourteen or fifteen copies so she can build some kind of arty structure and pin it. Tell her to make sure the cover is clearly visible.

  1. Yeah, great coffee table material too, don't you think? :P

  2. I gave this book as a postpartum gift to a first time mom and was later told how unbelievably timely and comforting it was. I read this book and thought, "where was this book when I was a first time mom?" You show great courage in sharing such personal trials and triumph.

  3. You're wrong about the courage, small one. I merely lack discretion and would like some pocket money.

  4. Did you just call me "small one"?? hahaha


Being nice is nice.
