Christian Mama's Guide To Baby's First Year - Review

Remember a few weeks ago when I reviewed The Christian Mama's Guide To Parenting A Toddler by Erin MacPherson?  I enjoyed it so much that I ordered The Christian Mama's Guide To Baby's First Year next.

I enjoyed this book just as much as the other one I read in this series!  MacPherson covers everything from breastfeeding to baby gear to losing the baby weight, and she does it in a fun and relatable way.  I agreed with so much of what she says in this book, and Derek kept asking me what I was laughing at while I was reading - and I was usually laughing at myself, because I've thought so many of the things that Macpherson says in the book! 

I've been enjoying these books because I've found them to be so encouraging.  They're a good reminder that motherhood is hard sometimes, and it's not going to look perfect, and that's okay - you are still a good mom.  And you are in good company.  That's something I need to hear (or read) sometimes when there are toys and piles of clothes scattered everywhere, the dog is barking, the baby's crying, and the toddler is getting Nutella all over the furniture.  It's normal, and it's precious.  And let's face it, it's funny.  Being reminded to laugh and enjoy it is priceless. 

 

P.S.  I also have to note that the author, Erin MacPherson, actually came over and commented on my review of the toddler book that I posted a few weeks ago!  I was very impressed and thought it was pretty classy of her to comment on the reviews of her books.  You all should also check out her blog, The Christian Mama's Guide.

 

Note:  I received this book for free from Booksneeze in exchange for this review.  This is my honest opinion.
