Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Sh!t No One Tells You took me right back to those first weeks of new motherhood -- truly the most empowering and frustrating (and frightening!) of times. With heartfelt encouragement and insight, Dawn Dais is a must-read for first-time moms."―Rebecca Woolf, author of Rockabye: From Wild to Child

"Humorous revelations offer insight into a natural process that can and often does completely overwhelm the mother... An amusing and accurate examination of life with an infant."
Kirkus Reviews

"Babies are wonderful -- we all agree. Can we also acknowledge that bringing home that first bundle of joy is one of the hardest things you'll ever do? Dawn Dais bravely goes where other baby books don't in her wisecracking new release called The Sh!t No One Tells You. She spills the truth about everything from breastfeeding to getting along with your partner post-baby. Pregnant women who want an honest peek inside what's to come will be convinced to nap while they still can, and moms with kids will laugh out loud at Dais's quirky insights and strong opinions."―Parents magazine

"From poop to post-partum depression, she presents a no-holds-barred look at all of the changes and challenges that new moms and dads can face, along with the three little words every infant-toting parent wants to hear: It gets better."―Parade

"Let's face it: there's a lot of shit that happens when you become a parent that you have to find out for yourself, especially in that first year. This brilliant book will cover it all."―Scary Mommy

"Having a baby is magical, amazing, and beautiful. It's also super hard and sometimes (especially on sleepless nights) a seemingly impossible challenge. As the title, uh, delicately puts it, this book covers all the sh!t that no one tells you so you can actually survive your baby's first blissful/crazy year."―Woman's Day

"Dais and her team of MOFLs (moms on the front lines) guide parents (moms, especially) through the first 52 weeks of your child's life with honesty, clarity, humor, complaints and encouragement on a myriad of important subjects from breastfeeding, endless crying and vaccinating to relationship problems, loss of freedom and inaccurate Facebook statuses ("OMG, I love my life!")."―Kirsten Ott Palladino, EquallyFamily.com

Named one of "3 Must-Have Books on Parenting" --Fit Pregnancy

Named one of "27 Baby Gifts That'll Make New Parents LOL" --PopSugar

Named one of the "Best Parenting Books That Are Definitely Worth a Read" --Woman's Day
