While I thought I would enjoy this as a humorous book, I only laughed maybe once. Wilder-Taylor is anti-attachment parenting, not especially positive about breastfeeding, and I just found her kind of annoying. I just finished the book because it was an easy read. And yes, previous reviewers--I do have a sense of humor. It obviously is just not the same as hers. And the language is pretty bad. If you are offended by cursing, I would stay away from this one.

I loved this book and I wish I would have written it because she believes everything about parenting as I do!! Great book if you have a good sense of humor.

Charming and entertaining - several lines were read aloud to the daddy-in-waiting - but not a "how-to" by any means. I agree with a lot of her points of view of mommy-dom, which makes it easy to swallow. A fun book for the first-time mom.

This book was good. Be wary though, if your not a cynical smart arse, you might find this offensive. Not I though, it was funny.

I laughed, hard and often!
She gives a humerous (although not always agreed with) take on every aspect of new-parenthood. You don't have to agree with her, just laugh with me. I read this while 8 months pregnant and at one point, in the middle of a quiet (filled) waiting room, I laughed hysterically - outloud. Then realized where I was and tried to stop. Worth the read!

There were parts of this book I thought were very funny and parts I could totaly relate to and remember being there. But at the same time I found some chapters a bit boring.

Histerical look at life as a new mother. Highly recommend for looking at the light side of that experience.

If you're a strict follower of a particular parenting plan (attachment, Babywise, etc) you probably won't like this book. Her basic philosphy is follow your intuition and use common sense and wing it a bit. I thought it was funny, realistic and a refreshing change to the "You must follow this exactly" school of thought. The language is a bit strong so if that bothers you steer clear. Overall would recommend this book.

Funny, light reading. I had wanted to read this awhile ago and sort of forgot it, now my "baby" is 3! Great for new moms!

ALthough this book was very funny in parts, it was pretty offensive. Not just the language. I am glad I just borrowed it from the library, and did not pay money for it.
