Energizer Bunny's Mommy Reports: CLOSED:'Enjoy the Ride' Book Review and Giveaway

CLOSED:'Enjoy the Ride' Book Review and Giveaway

Are you a first time mom to be and have no idea what you will do when your baby actually arrives into this world? Still not sure if you should bottle feed or breast feed your little one? Don't know when your child should say his first few understandable words?

I know, it does seem overwhelming and sometimes we wish when our first baby comes out, he or she comes out with a tiny manual attached to his/her wrist. Sigh...if only!

Thanks to family support, great Mommy buddies and online resources, you really don't have to be all that worried. Today there are a whole lot of great books....quick but comprehensive reads that you can pick up and feel more at ease. One such book that I recently came across is Suzy Martyn's 'Enjoy the Ride'.

Suzy Martyn is a parenting consultant and more importantly a Mommy, who has cared for kids for over 25 years, so the book isn't based on just a year or two of handling kids.

Enjoy the Ride is a short 160 paged book that holds answers to questions that you have about..
  • How to get ready for your new baby
  • Strange things you may notice about your newborn that are actually very normal.
  • Breastfeeding
  • Sleep patterns in your little one
  • Feeding your picky eater and
more!

I love that this book doesn't only deal with your baby's first few years but also with some challenges you may face as a parent as your little angel turns into an energy filled toddler and slowly matures into a school going 5 year old and slowly over the years into a ten year old with a personality!

One of my favorite sections in this book is the Baby Registry List of 'Should Haves' ...the list is detailed, brand specific and an expectant parent's best friend!!

This book has been awarded the 'Mom's Choice Award' for parenting books. Do I recommend this book? Without a second thought!!

Also spend some time on Suzy's site, there's a lot of good reading material for parents and parents-to-be.


Buy it:

I thought the immunization charts were awesome, we were worried about how to track them all and that there seem to be so many lined up - now we can track them much easier!
