How to Change the World (or at Least a Diaper)
On Two Hours of Sleep.
As the mom of a newborn, you’ll probably spend many wakeful moments wondering how your bundle of joy managed to set you onto the steepest learning curve of your life. Just like other really steep curves (think roller coasters), mommyhood can throw you for a big loop. But if you can keep your perspective–and your sense of humor–neither post-baby flab, nor interfering advisors, nor neon orange sweet-potato stains will be able to dash your gauzy visions of Baby’s first year.
Designed to fuel the new mommy’s body, mind, and spirit, this indispensable month-by-month guidebook provides can’t-miss help from veteran moms. In the occasional lucid moments your sleep-starved brain allows, you’ll have a few good laughs and get the eye-opening scoop on:
• Your life as a walking zombie
• How to get more sleep (it can be done!)
• Breast-feeding 101 (and no-guilt bottle-feeding)
• Revving up your stalled love life
• Battling your post-partum bulge
• and much more!
Whether you are a first-time mom or a “mom again,” O For a Thousand Nights to Sleep will cheer you on and help you enjoy this wondrous, wacky year of your life: Baby’s first!
