Publisher's Summary

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)

“With their Mom Truths that’ll resonate with overwhelmed moms everywhere, Cat and Nat tell you in a hundred wildly hilarious ways the easiest thing to forget, and the most important thing to remember: You’re already doing a great job.” (Dawn Dais, author of The S--t No One Tells You About Pregnancy: A Guide to Surviving Pregnancy, Childbirth and Beyond)   

“Cat and Nat’s Mom Truths takes everything that’s scary about being a mom and makes it hilarious.” (Karen Alpert, New York Times best-selling author of I Heart My Little A-Holes

Off the rails!

Love you ladies!
This was an easy listen & even though I’m a grandma now, I listened with the memories of my own children in mind! And now that I have the granddaughter, all of the “rules” are thrown out the window!
Just when I thought I couldn’t love anymore, grand babies show up & it’s a love like no other! Yes, the best is yet to come!
You ladies have inspired me beyond words. Keep staying “off the rails” & I wish you both much success!
I’d also like to thank your mommas for raising such beautiful, intelligent, kind hearted & fun ladies!
