One of my favourite gifts after giving birth was a book called Go the F*ck to Sleep by Adam Mansbach. I can’t remember who gave it to me (because baby brain is real), but I remember getting a lot of laughs out of it. Which is exactly what you need when you’re hormonal, sleep deprived and coming to terms with the responsibility of keeping a tiny human alive.
So next time you’re shopping for your friend/cousin/shaman’s newborn, don’t forget; MUMS NEED PRESENTS TOO! Pick up one of these books, show up at the door, take the baby into another room and give them half an hour to read (cry/go to the toilet) in peace.
