The Modern Girl's Guide to Motherhood

$25.95

In this funny, smart, and honest book, Jane Buckingham cuts through the clutter to give you simple information and practical advice for navigating the different stages of motherhood. From how to get your child to sleep and how to wean, to how to get him off the pacifier and how to stop his tantrums, this book will help moms feel in the know and in control! Some of Buckingham's favorite tips:

 

  • If your baby has a hard time feeding because of a stuffy nose, turn on the shower to steam up the bathroom and feed her there.

     

  • Put your children's paints in an empty egg carton — it's the perfect size, and there's no mess to clean up when you're done. Use an old raincoat with the arms cut off as a smock.

     

  • You should buy a new car seat, rather than borrowing a friend's old car seat, as there are constant safety upgrades. Also, be sure you are the person registered to that car seat (send in that registration card!) so that you'll be notified in case of a recall.

     

  • Keep the three-day rule in mind: Almost any bad habit can be broken in three days. Granted, they may be tough, torturous days, but you can do it!
