WIN: You Can’t Give Vodka to a Baby

Is it always shake a baby or is it never shake a baby?

There is so much to learn if you become a parent.

This book will give any new mum or dad the advice and confidence to raise their children into adults who probably won’t end up in jail or on drugs, and to build relationships deeper than any you may have seen on reality TV shows.

Or maybe not!

Go on. You need a laugh when you are a parent, or a nearly-parent, or trying to be a parent, or – just anytime really.


You Can’t Give Vodka to a Baby is straight up hilarious. People talk about a novel, saying they just couldn’t put it down, this book is much the same. It will have you procrastinating and neglecting your chores and children as you read/laugh/cry through ‘just one more page’. The Best Nest Blog 
A perfect book for a stressed out first time mum, who has been overwhelmed by passive aggressive parenting books, determined to take all the fun out of being mum. This wicked satire skewers all the sacred cows of the parenting industry and should put a smile on the face of even the most exhausted mum.
