A humorous, realistic, and supportive guide to the first 52 weeks with a baby, The Sh!t No One Tells You is the first book in Dawn Dais's popular parenting series, followed by The Sh!t No One Tells You About Toddlers and The Sh!t No One Tells You About Baby #2. 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 author Dawn Dais, mother of two tiny terrors, 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. Eschewing the adorableness that oozes out of other parenting books, 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. The Sh!t No One Tells You is a must-have companion for every new mother’s sleepless nights and poop-filled days.

The third book in Dawn Dais's popular Sh!t No One Tells You series covers all a parent needs to know once the reality of having two children settles in. Around the time your first baby turns a year old your brain will turn on you. For reasons that are still not understood by science, the sleep deprivation and postpartum hormones you barely survived with your first baby fade from memory and will be replaced with idyllic images of your growing child. This is when your brain, having officially lost all regard for your well-being, begins to fantasize about a second baby. And for the first time since becoming a parent these thoughts don't make you break out in hives. Before you know it, you are dressing your first child in "I'm Going to be a Big Sister!" T-shirts and catalog-shopping for bunk beds. This will be fantastic! But then that familiar morning sickness kicks in. And your adorable 18-month-old transforms into a two-year-old terror. That's when those hives start to return. With Dawn Dais's trademark witty banter, The Sh!t No One Tells You About Baby #2 includes chapters such as "You Have Officially Lost Control of the Situation," "Siblings Aren't Nearly as Adorable as You Imagined," "You'll Have a Favorite," and "Having Kids Looks a Lot Easier on TV."

Why don’t babies come with a how to manual?” Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pediatrician there with you so you could remember what was said in those well visits and to ask simple questions to? Finally a parenting book that is organized around your baby’s well visits, isn’t written like a text book and meant to calm you down rather than scare you about all the very rare possibilities. Dr. Cliff James is a board certified Pediatrician in private practice for the last 15 years. His goal was to write a book that could both inform and entertain a new parent. With the help of his own baby, Kaden, you get a look at parenting from a pediatrician point of view as well as the mind of a baby/toddler/evil genius. This book covers: *Choosing a pediatrician *Feeding your baby *Pee, Poop, Puke and Snot *Vaccines *What happens in the hospital *Chapters for each well visit *Developmental milestones *Illnesses *Injuries This book is designed to bring a little lightheartedness to parenthood with cartoons, jokes, and plenty of Dr. James’ own disaster stories as a parent. “To often we as pediatricians and parents spend too much time emphasizing how much work it is to be a parent and lose sight of the fact children are hilarious and a great source of joy.”
