I'll be honest, I'm not a mom-to-be but really wanted to read this since I seen her promoting this on Tyra. I haven't read her other books so I can not compare it to others in her "series". With that out of the way, I thought the book was a loosy-goosy "what to expect" in the months during and after pregnancy, from a view point of a friend-like person without a medical and "sterile" background. With this in mind, her point of view is seen in realistic 30 year old mom setting/language but also VERY Jenny McCarthy.

If you haven't heard of her before this book and get easily offended by crude nick names like "Nursing Nazi" or the occasional swearing, this book isn't for you. If you're looking for medicinal/factual information, this isn't for you. But, if you want something that displays a tongue-in-cheek way of looking at pregnancy, this is one that I thought was pretty amusing. Kitch-y illustrations and all.

This book is hilarious. It captures Jenny McCarthy's real and uncensored thoughts on being a first time Mommy.

A lighthearted, funny, quick read. Made me laugh in the first weeks of having my baby home. I could relate more than I expected.

A follow-up to her hugely funny book "Belly Laughs", Jenny tackles the 1st year of motherhood and all the "fun" things it entails (baby poop, circumcision, losing the baby weight, etc.) Even though the topics aren't funny in and of themselves, Jenny tackles them with humor and truthfulness. A great read for the new mom!

This book was a major disappointment to me after all the hype. I didn't find it humerous at all... moreso very negative towards parenting experiences. Rather than giving good information to new moms in her book, Ms McCarthy purported myths regarding breastfeeding, co-sleeping, infant feeding and sleeping schedules, birth, and more. She gave incorrect information about many things and was very derrogatory about situations such as breastfeeding even calling lactation consultants "Nursing Nazi"s. She showed her lack of true information when she described a let-down of her milk in the shower as it appearing that there were many holes not just one in her breast... when if she had sought out information on nursing, she would have learned that it is true that there are many openings in a nipple, not just one. She also compares sleeping with a baby to rolling over on her pet dog and pushing it off the bed. She gives incorrect information regarding postpartum depression and postpartum psychosis as well.
Overall, this book was a major disappointment and one that I am sad some new moms may read and view having a baby as a burden and hassle rather than the blessing it is. I would much rather recommend Girlfriend's Guide books for humor or Dr Sear's Baby Book for accurate information.

Very cute book. I definitely had a few laugh out loud moments as I remembered the times that she was describing.
This book is probably more helpful for someone who is about to have a baby or has a very young baby opposed to someone with a 6 month old.
Very funny book for the woman's woman :)

I really did enjoy this book. I read it while I was 8 months pregnant, and the book got me excited to start the wacky journey called parenthood.

I've gotta say, I think this book did freak me out more about cutting newborn fingernails than needed, but it was all in good fun.

Frank to the point of being crude at times. It had some funny moments and valuable tips, but I'm just not use to this type of humor. It was too gross for me.

I could totally relate to Jenny McCarthy's truth-telly book about the first year of motherhood. I found myself laughing out loud, which was much needed for this sleepless mom! I have passed this book along to another first time mom, so that she too knows that she is not alone in her motherhood journey!

For those of you whom have kids or want to have them this is a wonderful book. It helps you out with what you will need to know. Also if you haven't read belly laughs It is wonderful also. It is funny and scary, but so true about being pregnant.

Not anywhere near as laugh out loud funny as her first book - Belly Laughs. Maybe ol' Jim should have helped her write this one.

Congratulations, youre a new mommy!

Youve brought your brand-new bundle of joy home, and theres so much to look forward to: photos; babys first word; clipping those oh-so-cute and very tiny fingernails; finding just the right stroller; sex again (gulp!); and, oh yes, losing the weight.
The joys of being a new mommy or daddy are endless, but so are the worries and the advice. Jenny McCarthy, the New York Times bestselling author of Belly Laughs, told you the truth about pregnancy and childbirth. Now shes telling the truth about babys first year. Not one to hold back, but always funny, Jenny will tell you everything about new motherhood your polite girlfriends wont tell you.*

With hilarious musings on desperately trying to recall lullabies, losing the weight, baby- proofing the house, encountering mommies with superbabies, postpartum depression, dueling grandmas, and still trying to lose the weight, Baby Laughs is the perfect companion for anyone trying to raise the next president, those just trying to get to the next naptime, and anyone who was ever in diapers.

Quick read, excellent gift for new mothers or mothers-to-be. This book is as new, no dog-eared pages or markings.
