How to Rock Your Baby: How-To’s & Advice From Real Life Moms – Giveaway! {U.S. & CAN; 5/15}

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

With my second baby due very soon, it was a pleasure to read Erin Bried’s new book, How to Rock Your Baby and Other Timeless Tips for Modern Moms. This was a funny and heartwarming read. Although it is based on Erin’s experience as a first time mom, I thought it was so helpful for a mom like me: a mama still in the throws of new motherhood but definitely in need of a quick refresher on everything that comes along with having a newborn. Although I only had my son 22 months ago, I’m so immersed in toddlerhood right now that an entertaining and bullet pointed book like How to Rock Your Baby was exactly what I needed.

advice for new momsErin Bried is a senior staff writer at SELF magazine and the author of How to Sew a Button: And Other Nifty Things Your Grandmother Knew and How to Build a Fire: And Other Handy Things Your Grandfather Knew.

With all of the confusing advice out there on how to raise your child, she’s come up with a fantastic way to find out the real deal on how to go about many aspects of mothering: She turned to real moms whose simple advice has stood the test of time. Erin interviewed mamas like the mothers of Rachel Maddow, Super Bowl champ Asante Samuel, writer Jonathan Safran Foer, and astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson.

How to Rock Your Baby covers 100 topics ranging from:
- how to calm a teething baby
- how to knit booties or a baby quilt
- how to make bathtime fun
- the best way to tell a bedtime story
- how to lose the baby weight
- how to make homemade blocks
- how to deal with unwanted advice
and so much more!

I know you’ll enjoy this book and I hope you can win your own copy of How to Rock Your Baby!

Most babies are soothed by rhythmic movements and eventually fall asleep while being rocked, but many parents go through some trial and error before discovering what works best for their baby.

That’s great! I haven’t heard about this book before, but a very good friend of mine is also having a baby and I think this one is more than suitable to get for her :P thanks!

I’ve only been able to read half the book so far, but I highly recommend everyone to read it. Any mother or expecting mother will learn some valuable lessons to help raise your son or daughter. Sometimes, the burden of being a new parent can be too much, and it helps to have somebody guide you through it.
