Publisher's Summary

There comes a time in every new mother's life when she finds herself staring at her screaming, smelly "bundle of joy" and wishing someone had told her that her house would reek of vomit, or that she shouldn't buy the cute onesies with a thousand impossible buttons, or that she might cry more than the baby.
Best-selling humor author Dawn Dais is convinced that there is a reason for this lack of preparedness. She believes that a vast conspiracy exists to hide the horrific truth about parenting from doe-eyed expectant mothers who might otherwise abandon their babies in hospitals and run for it. In The Sh!t No One Tells You, Dais reveals what it's really like to be a new parent and provides helpful insights, humor, and hope for those who feel overwhelmed by the exhausting trials they're suddenly facing. Dais offers real advice from real moms-along with hilarious anecdotes, clever tips, and the genuine encouragement every mom needs in order to survive the first year of parenthood.

Very negative

I was excited for this book. I know that there are unpleasantries to pregnancy, child birth and the firs year of baby's life. I like that this book touched on all these points. What I didn't like was how negative the book is. I started to feel sorry for this women's kid. I would hate to grow up and read how much my mom hated raising me. I get that there are times you want to rip your hair out, but I didn't know I was going to hate every moment of having a baby. This book made me sad for this women's daughter.

Decent, but flawed

Liked: presented a normalizing narrative of accepting that parenting is hard.

Didn't like: author did not seem aware of her own biases or cognitive dissonances. She tried to present vaccination as "controversial" issue, but barely talked about the science. I wanted a refund on this book after listening.
