A New Mom's Impression Of Rattled


The previous post I included from Trish Berg for her book Rattled was so long, I did not want this to get lost in the shuffle. I sent this book to my sister in law, Tonia (who is a first time mom to my six month old nephew Landon!) and she loved it! She wrote the following impression of the book:

I consider Rattled part of the essential baby gear for the first year of motherhood- just as important to Mom's sanity as the bouncy seat and favorite bedtime blankey! Trish seemed to get inside my head and heart and put into words my feelings about the new experiences a mother encounters. Then, as an experienced mom of four, she added expert advice, humor, and spiritual guidance for all the things that rattled my world with the birth of my son. It made me laugh, it made me cry, often on the same page! This book will be part of all future baby shower gifts I give!

Would you like to win a copy of Rattled? Leave me a comment and I will choose a number through http://www.random.org/ for you to win for yourself or pass along to a new mom in your life! You have until Wednesday, February 20th to leave your comment for a chance to win, and I will draw the winner on Thursday and announce it here.

Pin It!

My brother and his wife just had their first baby on Friday! I would love to send this book to them if I win. Sounds like something I would have really learned from about 10 years ago.

Thank you for your blog, I pop in and feel refreshed. After a very sleepless night with my 10 month old, I think I'm in need of a survival kit! LOL. Thank you for sharing that interview of Rattled :)

Love reading your blog Marybeth. My sister is due in just a few weeks with baby number 2 - looks like her world is about to be rattled some more.

Having 3 beautiful blessings under the age of 5, I seem to stay "rattled"! I enjoy reading when time allows and this sounds like a great read!

Hi Mary Beth! When I read the post about the book Rattled, I thought of my cousin and how much I would love to get the book for her. I mean I would love to have one for myself too, because I feel rattled pretty frequently. But if I were to win, i would give it to my cousin. She was just talking to me today about her struggles in being at home with her first baby, now 6 months. I would love to be able to give this book as a gift!

Thanks,
Chelsea
