Review: Suff Every Mom Should Know

by: Heather Gibbs Flett and Whitney Moss

Available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Synopsis:
A Mother Should Trust Her Instincts

Or so they say. But when you’re not completely sure how to handle a parenting problem, Stuff Every Mom Should Know has the answers, including:
  • How to Swaddle a Baby
  • Fifteen Birthday-Party Survival Tips
  • The Truth about Potty Training
  • The Miracle of White Noise
  • Comebacks for Unsolicited Parenting Advice
Plus tips for mastering quick and easy meals, suggestions for baby-proofing like an expert, advice on stocking your medicine cabinet, tricks to making a long wait fun, and much, much more.

Remember when I reviewed How to Con Your Kid and said it would make a great shower gift? This should also be added. It's a quick parenting book with only the barest of suggestions from infant to teenager. The infant section does include some good ideas about when to introduce food, what constitutes solid food, and even suggesting if you plan carefully you can mush up the dinner you prepared for everyone else and get the older baby eating different foods. Of course with new babies, you want to introduce foods one at a time to rule out any allergies.

Then there's directions to build a "Kick-ass fort." Encouraging parents to plan meals children can help prepare. As they grow older, some simple meals to teach. And my favorite, for teenagers...how to sneak a snuggle without getting yelled at. Got that one tucked away until later. I have boys, it's going to be even harder to get a snuggle out of them.

I have "Stuff Every Dad Should Know" coming soon, I think that would round out a great BOOK Basket for a shower gift. Talk about unique!
