as essential for new parents as a Diaper Genie

I loved Planet Parenthood! I recently gave a copy to my brother and his wife, who just had their first baby, and after taking a look inside, I couldn't resist reading it myself cover to cover. It was a terrific read -- I laughed my hiney off, and it seemed really wise and true, to boot. I've already seen bro and sis-in-law grappling with some of the issues mentioned, and I think the book will be a big help to them in putting it all into perspective and getting a good laugh, even in their sleep-depreived state (excellent therapy for stress). I was a fan of Tilsner's earlier book, 29 and Counting, and she's done it again!

Love this book!

OK, so I'm not a parent yet. But, I have about six girlfriends who've either given birth in the past year or who are almost due. I got this book to give as gifts (I'm a fan of Julie Tilsner's first book "29 and Counting") and couldn't put it down! So funny, and so right-on for what my girlfriends-turned-mothers were going through during their first year of motherhood. It almost makes me want to join the planet. (Almost!)

Excellent--much needed!

God, this book was a welcome relief. A friend saw it and gave it to me since we have a two-month old and everything Tilsner says is so true, and she expresses it all so well and entertainingly. Humor sure is needed when you don't get much sleep and can't remember what life was like before child.

Funny, Facts-of-Life Friend

Having read this book before our first child was born, as well as a lot of other books, I found that as each new parenting situation came up, as each amazing baby behavior surfaced, parts from all the other books came to my mind half the time -- and parts from this book the other half. How this one book taught me so much can be attributed to the humor, and me-and-you-buddy approach the author takes. She's like a sister or a close friend laying out the territory for you and making it funny, to boot. This is your best bet.

Right on the money funny

Planet Parenthood is one of the funniest, right on target booksabout having babies that I've read in a long time. Forget about Whatto Expect...If you're looking for a book on parenthood that will make you laugh and make you feel 100 times better about your sticky, sleepless and sexless new life, this is the book for you. Julie Tilsner is a fantastic writer and Planet Parenthood is a perfect gift for any new mom or dad who might be taking things a little too seriously. It's actually loaded with lots of practical information, but swaddled in funny stories that depict the real poop that parenthood is.
