Publisher's Summary

The national best seller

Hilarious best friends Cat and Nat created a massive online community of moms by sharing their ultra-real and just a bit R-rated dispatches from the mom trenches. From what not to eat a few days after giving birth (chicken wings) to the most effective ways to dodge post-partum sex, Cat & Nat’s Mom Truths shares everything no one will tell you about having kids. 

Mixing memoir, humor, and advice, Cat and Nat tell never-before-told stories about the stress, guilt, joy, and laundry (oh the laundry!) of being a mom in their first book. With seven kids between them and millions of fans on social media, they get real about the parts of parenting that somehow don’t make the Instagram feed. Sharing their outrageous humor, fearless myth-busting, and genuine comfort, they walk you from pregnancy to the toddler years and beyond. And they dole out ridiculously honest advice, like what you think you need at the hospital when you have your first baby (lip gloss) versus what you actually need (hemorrhoid pillow), and how worried you should really be about germs (less than you are). Fearless crusaders against the perfection myth and all the gluten-free, sugar-free baking it entails, Cat and Nat assure you that you’re already doing a great job, making this an essential companion for moms everywhere.

What the critics say

"Accept the chaos, embrace the mom bod and stress less about germs, among other things. That's courtesy of Catherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer, friends from high school who reconnected as first-time mothers. Parenting books left them feeling like they already blew it, the writers said, so they looked elsewhere for affirmation." (Wall Street Journal)

"What do new mothers need the most? Sleep, for one. But after sleep, they need good friends, people to let them know they aren't alone in this strange new world they are navigating. Enter Catherine Belknap and Natalie Telfer.... Their new book is funny, honest, and encouraging." (New York Post

The tone is terrible!!! I couldn’t keep listening I preferred no in flight entertainment to another minute of this ...
it’s probably an ok read but the narration is just awful.

Regrettable purchase

Trite and juvenile. The chapter on sex made me sad and embarrassed for them, and equally so for their husbands. Nearly five hours of trading on tired tropes, and despite the promise of a humour-filled book, very little to crack a smile over let alone laugh. Save your money.

AMAZING support and advise

I really enjoyed this audiobook. As mothers, we are hard on ourselves and certainly don't have it all together, even if it appears we do. I appreciate Cat and Nat for being open, honest, vulnerable, and relatable on every level.

Thought it would be funnier

It is funny but for the most part it’s preachy. Can’t get over the nasty attitude toward the talky Play date Mom. I am THAT mom. Sometimes play dates are the only interaction with adults I ever get. How about a little understanding for the socially awkward mom?

Not truths- stereotypical hype

If you like to hear two ladies complain about the same things over and over again....men suck, dont judge other moms like I have, I do all the work, this sucks, that sucks, then this might be the book for you. It may be funny for one off stories, but compiled into a book it becomes clear these ladies are caddy and shallow.

Great fun read

The book was interesting and I love that the authors both read it. I 100% disagree with the sex chapter though. I do not like how they gave women ideas on how to blow off their husbands about sex. Yes, sex immediately after having a baby needs to wait and men need to be patient. No one should be having sex until they are ready and healed up. Sex is a very important part of a relationship though for both parties involved. I loved the book except that one chapter.

Disappointing

I think this book is good but definitely not great. I admit, I did not finish it, but decided to return it. Maybe Bossypants caused me to set the bar too high. Maybe my entrance into motherhood was too many years ago. This book is casual and a lot like listening to good friends. I just prefer the ones I have in real life.
