Publisher's Summary

The moment the second line on the pee stick turns pink, women discover they've entered a world of parenting experts. Friends, family, colleagues, the UPS delivery guy - suddenly everybody is a trove of advice, much of it contradictory and confusing. With dire warnings of what will happen if baby is fed on demand and even direr warnings of what will happen if he isn't, not to mention hordes of militant "lactivists", cosleeping advocates, and books on what to worry about next, modern parenthood can seem like a minefield.
In busy-mom-friendly short essays, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay delivers the empathetic straight dirt on parenting, tackling everything from Mommy & Me classes ("Your baby doesn't need to be making friends at three months old - you do! But not with people you'll meet at Mommy & Me") to attachment parenting ("If you're holding your baby 24/7, that's not a baby, that's a tumor"). Stefanie Wilder-Taylor combines practical tips with sidesplitting humor and refreshing honesty, assuring women that they can be good mothers and responsibly make their own choices.

Pretty good

I don't know if I'm just a sleep deprived new mom or what but the first half of the book I found hilarious, honest, and an easy listen. Make me feel like I wasn't alone as a new mom navigating the pressures, criticism, and advise of other moms. But about half way through I lost interest and the content became repetitive and punchlines less effective. Overall I'm glad I read (listened) to the book and wish I would have listened while pregnant to prepare for the experience of becoming a new mom.
