First let me say I have only had this book for a little over a week, I have read it but not put it into practise so I can't say whether it works or not. BUT what I CAN say is that the book is super easy to read and looks VERY practical. The chapters are short which is perfect for a busy mom. My "baby" is two but I still found tons of good ideas in this book- it is certainly not limited to moms of newborns. The Baby Fat Diet is packed full of great ideas from eating plans, snack suggestions and fabulous facts to tips on how to exercise with a baby and reverse bad shopping habits. The Baby Fat Diet would be a help ANY mom trying to lose weight.
