Guest Review by my Favourite Woman 🙂
4/5 Paper Movement Stars
The Christian Mama’s Guide to Baby’s First Year is both humorous and educational and I found it to be an enjoyable and easy read. Erin does an excellent job of giving advice in an entertaining way. She reminds her readers often that she is not a medical professional, and that her advice is based on her own experiences. She presents her opinions, but leaves room for mothers to make choices based on what is best for them and their child.
While this may not be the only book you will want to read about “Baby’s First Year”, she offers practical insights on topics every new mother is wondering about, like feeding, mental health, medical help, and she also includes a chapter for Fathers.
This book is not about all of a baby’s milestones, and what to expect as far as their development. It is more about you as a mother, and the practical things you may be needing to hear from another mother who has been there and experienced the chaos of motherhood. Erin writes as a friend would.
I would recommend this book to any new mother. It is well written, interesting, quite informative, funny, and is broken into nice short sections so that a new mother can read small sections at a time between caring for her infant.
The one complaint I have about the book is the physical book itself – the cover got a major curl happening both on the front and back, seemingly on its own.
