The Alternative Baby Keepsake Book
Laugh Out Loud Memories from Baby's First Year
by Esther Onions

Having a baby is a beautiful, life-changing event, but it also brings with it
more than a few funny, embarrassing, and very, very smelly moments.

Contemporary and comprehensive, as well as being laugh out loud funny.
Acknowledges the challenges of child-rearing with humour and honesty.
For fans of The Unmumsy Mum and the best-selling Hurrah for Gin.

From the most cack-handed comment Dad made in the delivery room to Baby’s first poo-tastrophe in public, The Alternative Baby Keepsake Book will help parents record the not-so-magical but frequently hilarious flipsides of pregnancy, birth and life with a newborn.

Inspired by the Mumsnet generation who no longer aspire to parental perfection but instead acknowledge the challenges of child-rearing with humour and honesty, the book will have readers laughing out loud and reflecting on their own weird and wonderful parenting methods. Not only will readers have huge fun filling in this book, they can also look forward to sharing it with their beloved sproglets many years from now. For best results, they should do this in front of a large crowd – calling it payback time for all the mortifying moments their delightful offspring caused them!

The book is illustrated by Peter King, an award-winning cartoonist whose work has been featured in Private Eye, Punch, The Spectator, Reader's Digest and many other leading publications.
