Review quote

Praise for Baby Laughs

"Hilarious...a no-holds-barred look at the joys, challenges, and humiliations of the first year of motherhood."-Time Out New York

"Baby Laughs is the book that can keep an aching morass of maternal hormones company in those long hours of just watching her infant sleep, slowly letting herself be OK with every unexplained hiccup or tiny grimace, and help her laugh at the way her emotions and body also slowly retreat from the Defcon One alert level that is pregnancy."-The Washington Examiner

"[McCarthy's] honesty is disarming, funny, and so boundless that you'll feel as if you're at her side every step of the way."-The Arizona Republic

Our customer reviews

In Baby Laughs Jenny leads us through her first year of motherhood in her typical true to form raunchy way. From the ups and downs of bringing her little bundle of joy home to battling post partum depression to changing her baby's diapers she used her unique sense of humour to tell her story. While this isn't the typical memoir we do get a unique glimpse into the life and times of a Hollywood mom and even though she may not be one of those in your face celebrities who appear in magazines every week she is a recognizable name in Tinsel Town. I loved how she wrote about a lot of different scenarios she went through that are plausible enough to have happen to the average new mom. She talks about family, sex, getting her body back and going back to work. She shares the ups and downs ins and outs and even some things you may not want to read if you have a delicate stomach but she makes it hilarious. Just like when I read her first book Belly Laughs this book had me hooked from the first page and had me laughing from the first page to the last. I can honestly say that I'll probably read anything that Jenny McCarthy writes because she's got the ability to get me out of a slump and have me laughing so hard I have tears running down my face. I would recommend Baby Laughs to everyone not just moms or moms to be. Although now that I think about it, Baby laughs would make the perfect shower gift for expectant moms. I think it's one that I might just buy for my friends when they're expecting just for a laugh.show more
