Review "So many parenting books focus on how to take care of a child, but how do you prevent yourself from going crazy in the meantime? They never say! Filled with tons of great tips, 50 Things to Do in Baby's First Year refreshingly addresses not only common baby issues for new moms, but also delves into the importance of self-care and not letting yourself get consumed by the whole process."―Jill Smokler, founder of Scary Mommy and author of Motherhood Comes Naturally (and Other Vicious Lies) "This little book is the new go-to gift for first-time moms. Both rich in useful information and written in a way exhausted parents can actually process, this book is an invaluable resource. It reads like your kindest, smartest, best mom friend is here to help without judgment, which is something every new mom needs in their life."―Kim Bongiorno, Author, freelance writer, and blogger behind Let Me Start By Saying "Amanda Rodriguez pulls from her experience as a mom of three to give you tips―as if she were talking to her closest girlfriends. She will guide you through not only caring for your baby, but reacquainting yourself with your post-pregnancy body and taking time for your mental health. 50 Things to Do in Baby’s First Year is organized by the months of your baby’s life. It makes the book a fast and easy read―specifically for that busy, over-tired, first-time mama."―Danielle Craig, Happiness in Progress podcast, DanielleCraig.com "I love this book for so many reasons, but I love it primarily because it is exactly the book I needed to read when I had my first baby way back when. It’s quick, easy to digest, and Amanda writes just like she’s your bff sitting by you on the couch, handing you tissues (or a glass of wine) as you cry because you are beyond exhausted and have no idea what to do with the baby you just brought home."―Amy Mascott, Teachmama.com and Author of Raising a Rock-Star Reader About the Author AMANDA RODRIGUEZ is the founder of Dude Mom, a blog where she chronicles her busy, on-the-go life raising three sons.
