Confessions of a Crummy Mummy - The Baby Years (Paperback)
Unashamedly oversharing the truth about the first year
Confessions of a Crummy Mummy - The Baby Years by parenting blogger and accidental mum of four Natalie Brown (@confessionsofacrummymummy) is the literary equivalent of the tea and toast you're handed after giving birth: warm, reassuring and you can't help but want more
An antidote to the traditional parenting manual, the telling-it-how-it-is parenting memoir lifts the lid on a subject the hugely successful genre of telling-it-how-it-is parenting memoirs has yet to touch on: giving birth during a global pandemic. And let's just say giving birth during a global pandemic was not in the birth plan
An easy-to-digest and quick-paced list-style format offers a collection of witty and brutally honest confessions time-poor mums can dip in and out of and back into again. Starting with the birth and what really happens to your lady bits after pushing a human being out of your foo-foo, chapters are split into confessions on subjects including breastfeeding, weaning, homeschooling and washing - and what happens when you find yourself doing it all in the middle of a global pandemic.
The light-hearted and entertaining confessions are peppered with heartfelt thoughts, frustrations, and home truths about the first year that every mum will relate to, making the book a perfect gift and must-read for all new (and not so new) mamas feeling like they're doing too many things and none of them well.
