It features humorous alternatives to `useful' sleep advice while offering inspiration, laughter and survival strategies for mums and dads struggling to see the light at the end of the tunnel of tiredness. Including chapters `What to Expect (When Nothing Is Anything Like You Expected When You Were Expecting)' and `How Not To Lose Friends and Irritate People When You Have Babies', this book will make even the most stressed parent laugh. Combining Emily-Jane's own experiences in emotive detail (the good, the bad and the funny) with a series of tongue-in-cheek guides, charts, subversive imagery and NO-sleep solutions, this is a source of inspiration and hope for new mums and dads.
