For anyone who is --or knows someone who is-- expecting, or has recently had a new baby and is feeling overwhelmed, underappreciated or just lost, this is the book for you. Through humor and brave self-disclosure the author, a clinical psychologist, showcases her journey through the realization that even though she has the “book smarts,” sometimes the practical application of psychological theory gets lost in translation when it comes to babies and young children.
By weaving together personal and professional stories with science through the lens of a “woke” bi-sexual woman of privilege, Dr. Cook offers the reader a multi-dimensional deep dive into parenting so that the learning becomes not only interesting but also inspirational to the sleep deprived and marginalized parent. This book is laced with many laugh-out-loud moments which are in and of themselves therapeutic and cathartic to all parents everywhere.
