Worth a listen but needs improvement.
This show is a great idea and can be fun to listen to. The guests are great, but sometimes it seems a little incoherent, as if they decided the topic of the show that morning. Also the host has a certain air about her that is off putting. Please realize that your way off parenting is not the only way. Your know it all attitude can be offensive, not every mom does things exactly how you do.
Pregtastic part 2?
I loved Pregtastic, and I really missed its guidance after having my baby a few months ago. I'm glad to see they've continued the idea for new moms. The new show is a little shorter than Pregtastic. Instead of having a roundtable chat and then an interview, each episode is either a chat or an interview, so you can skip around if you want. I guess the shorter episodes are better for busy moms, but I'm so used to the Pregtastic format that I'd like it that way too. I listen at night when I'm nursing my baby in the dark, and I think I'll also listen when I'm pumping at work. I have a lot to learn, so I'm excited to see what topics they will have this year. It's also nice to follow up with the different moms; seeing how they deal with the various stages makes me feel less stressed about my own issues. I don't have a lot of friends with babies the same age as mine, so it is nice to hear what everyone is going through. I like that they have both working and stay-at-home moms too. It would be fun if some dads would come in once in a while. I know it's a mom show, but I think it would be nice to know their perspective. Maybe that can be a special episode. Now what am I going to listen to once I'm no longer a "new" mom?
I so badly wanted to like this as A first time mom of a one year old and while there was some really good information, I was very disappointed. The "working" moms always talk about how they can't do things like make their own baby food or clothe diapers because they don't have time...well somehow other working moms do so I really didn't appreciate them acting as though it was impossible. Aside from that, they may want to research their guests a bit better...just because someone has written a book does not mean they know all. All babies are different and all families are different and they do not present it as such. It seems like they are just desperately trying to make this show happen but need to take more into consideration, especially the guests they have on. Oh and I also didn't appreciate the views they gave in breastfeeding. As the mother of a preemie baby who pumped exclusively for the first six months before teaching my baby to nurse, I was so disheartened to hear all but one whine about breastfeeding like it was so awful and give up on it so quickly. I tried but definitely will not be listening. It's manic mommies for me.
