From the Editor

I love self-help books – where better to turn when you just don’t know what you’re doing? When bestselling author Suzy Quinn became pregnant with her first daughter, she thought exactly the same thing: there are hundreds of parenting guides telling her exactly what to do, so surely this mothering thing would be a lark? Nature and Suzy would work in harmony, navigating pregnancy symptoms with good fruit and yoga.

Only that’s not quite what happened, because what Suzy found was that the books weren’t entirely, well, truthful. And neither her body, nor the baby, behaved as expected. So while this book won’t make you believe that pregnancy and motherhood are all sweetness and light, it is a hilarious dismantling of the first year of motherhood, from the highs to the lows and everything in between.

- Victoria Pepe, Editor


Product description

Product Description

Bestselling author of the Bad Mother books Suzy K Quinn reveals the truth behind the lies we tell mothers, one sleepless night at a time.

Suzy and Demi were carefree twenty-somethings. They had fun! They didn’t have responsibilities! And then they decided to have a baby. Goodbye lazy weekends, hello sleepless nights, arguments and an addiction to industrial-strength hot chocolate.

In the midst of this major life change, Suzy discovered that most parenting advice should be taken with a pinch of salt—or ten.

For example:

#1 Lie—Just go with your mother’s instinct. But what if your instinct is telling you to hide under the stairs?

#10 Lie—Your new baby will tell you what it needs. Not if it can’t talk it won’t.

#23 Lie—You should never bribe your children. You will ALWAYS bribe your children.

Follow Suzy on the ultimate make-over—from nervous-wreck new mother to happy families. In this hilarious and refreshingly honest account for parents who prefer the realistic to the utopian, Suzy debunks the myths and takes us all along for the (bumpy) ride.
