A Mom's Ultimate Book of Lists

by Michelle LaRowe

This book is a VERY comprehensive compilation of lists that are helpful to ANY mom. The lists start with Common Pregnancy Symptoms and Solutions and go through choosing a childcare provider. There are also lists about what you DON’T need as a mom and places to take your child for the day. There are lists on so many subjects. The lists are easy to understand and are EXACTLY the type of lists mom’s need (especially first timers). This book would make an amazing baby shower gift!

As a mom of a toddler and an infant, I find the lists helpful in overcoming the inevitable “Mommy Brain”. Like any pre-fabricated lists, there will be some items that don’t apply and some that you feel you need that aren’t on the list, but at least you are given a jumping off point. With so much going on in your life, the last thing you want to think about is making a huge list of stuff to take with you on your first trip.

My favourite parts of this book are the recipes for freezer friendly meals and toddler friendly treats (i.e.: Dirt Cups). I found this book to also be a great reference guide for following your infant/toddlers growth and development (both charts are in this book!). It also lists the dietary needs of children along with the suggested serving sizes of each food category.

I would highly recommend this book to ANY mom with young children.
