The perfect book for expecting mothers!

You’re expecting! Congratulations…and welcome to a seemingly endless string of choices: Doctor or midwife? Home or hospital birth? All natural or epidural? Cloth or disposable diapers? Breast-feeding or formula?

Now take a deep breath. Modern motherhood is full of possibilities and Bun 2 Babe is here to help you navigate your options. While there are numerous parenting books available, not many present firsthand accounts of multiple methods in a noncompetitive way. After having four children herself, author Charlotte Ryan, B.Sc. Hon., B.Ed., MA, knows from experience that what is right for one mother or child is not necessarily best for another.

Personal, practical, and at times downright hilarious, Bun 2 Babe guides you from pregnancy through raising a toddler with helpful advice and strategies pertinent to each stage. Discover what’s available, from birth choices to child-care options, so you can make an informed decision that fits your baby and your situation. Your baby is lucky to have you—you’re going to be a great mom!

    My go-to resource

    As a first time mom-to-be, I made Bun 2 Babe my go-to resource. I even took it with me to the baby store when I registered, referred to it when considering bottle-feeding or breast-feeding (or both) and used it to put together my birth plan. While other books provide a litany of advice but are short on practical, tried-tested-and-true tips,this book is different because it is written by a clearly dedicated, smart mom of four whose children are still young, so the information is so relevant. Whereas other books offer an encyclopedia of clinical and medical ideas (which have their places, of course), this personal, in-the-trenches account offers down-to-earth, thoughtful, and endearing guidance—the author becomes the wise friend you can turn to as you experience all these firsts. I can’t recommend it highly enough for moms-to-be!
