The Christian Mama’s Guide to Baby’s First Year Book Review

I recently was recently sent this book and loved it…the only problem? My littles are all beyond this age. I was thrilled to give it to a brand new mom that I love!

I absolutely love that throughout the book, Erin Mapherson includes “Time Out For Moms,” brief devotionals with a quick Scripture verse and prayer to help settle and calm your emotional heart. She helps you focus on God even when you are so sleep deprivation and a major case of baby brain.  This was so perfect for my friend and I really wish I would have had this when my babies…were well babies {especially the twins!} Erin is so careful to be inclusive, she includes tips and info for adopting moms as well as birthing moms, those that had a C-section and those that delivered vaginally, those that breastfeed until their kids are 2 and those that use the bottle in the hospital room, and for working moms, stay-at-home moms and work-from-home moms! How great is that? I have friends that are in every single category and so often those of us who had c-sections feel like out casts and mamas who can’t breast feed are treated like they are not good moms…that isn’t the case at all an Erin does a amazing job of just being there for you and being your best friend!

This book is light and easy to read and very funny along the way which is so very important because when you come home with a new baby or have a little one it is really easy become robot like especially if you are exhausted or overwhelmed, Erin really helps to bring back reality in a fun way!

I could spend the next hour or two telling you every thing that I love about this book, but instead I want you to head out and get if for yourself, daughter, friend, whoever!

I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review!
