There are two facts that all new parents learn: "Breast is best" and "If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy." The first is learned from books, nurses, pediatricians, lactation consultants, unsolicited advice from strangers, and embroidered pillows. The second lesson is often a product of the first.
In twelve frank and funny essays, Parenting Uncensored gives a range of perspectives on an often controversial topic: breastfeeding. From Stefanie Wilder's plea for everyone to stop judging one another to Samantha Bee's fear of what her boobs will look like post-weaning ("the terms that immediately come to mind: fried egg, tennis ball in a tube sock, deflated miniature football"), to Catherine Connors's stance on formula advertising ("I'm a grown-up, you guys. I know what commercial speech is"), you'll hopefully find a kindred spirit and even be inspired to join the conversation. Several of the essays in the book were chosen by the Babble community as the most compelling and helpful examination of the topic.
Babble, the leading site for parents sharing "tell-it-like-it-is" guidance, presents the first volume of Parenting Uncensored, a series of short ebooks on topics of vital interest to expecting and new parents.
