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.

Has The Sh!t No One Tells You turned you off from other books in this genre?


Any additional comments?

I was really looking forward to a funny and light read, but I found this book to be extremely negative to the point that it was just depressing. I was also hoping to get a few good tips in-between the humour but there really weren't any at all. This book was just an endless stream of complaining without offering any suggestions of how to make things better. I kept listening to see if it would get better but ultimately turned it off halfway through.

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.
