About the book
You are having a baby. How do you feel? Excited? Nervous? Downright terrified? For most people, even if it is something they have longed for, having a baby is a voyage into the great unknown, a turning point after which their lives will never be the same again. When Will I Sleep Through the Night? is a beautifully written account of one woman's experience of pregnancy and the first year of her child's life. Written in diary-style entries, it is a record of the day-to-day reality of having a baby and a portrait of the frustration, fear and overwhelming love that come with it. By turns funny, moving and reassuring, this is a book that doesn't try to tell you what to do or what to feel but simply tells it as it is, a story that is both intimate and universal, an A-Z of babyhood.
A sweet, lovely, funny book that perfectly captures the brainbending madness of the first year.
A lucid, humorous and, above all, completely unhectoring account of becoming a mother... I found it hard to put down... I would advise mothers-to-be to save it until they, too, reach the end of the first year and can smile in delighted recognition.
Refreshingly honest... it's important to have accounts like this available to read... It's nice to know you're not alone
Honest and frank... This book is part funny, part moving and wholly reassuring... it crafts a story that is both intimate and universal.
What sets this apart is the quality of the... this manages to perfectly capture the excitement, nervousness and tedium of those early months... fun and accessible.
