Mom’s Journey | Review & Giveaway

Ellen / October 16, 2014


As a first time mom, I have found myself spending hours searching every corner of the internet for any tips and tricks to help with night feeding or weaning. I found most of my help came from bloggers who are real life moms, who have been there, done that and worn the t shirt. That’s exactly who Limor Friedman is. She’s a real life mom who used her experiences to write a book (on her phone) to help others out there.

Friedman uses both her success stories and her mistakes to give a factual account of raising her three girls. She shows that parents know their child better than any text book and empowers mothers to use their instincts when it comes to their children. I, for one, went completely against the grain when it came to weaning Aidan, but I knew he was ready for it and I wasn’t wrong.

The book is full of little tips that help the well being of children from infants to teens. It’s full of tips which although small, can have a major change in the outcome of a situation, ranging from sugar to shouting.

This book is written in several small chapters each one like a blog post. A great layout for Moms like me, who might only have 5 minutes here and there to pick up a book, you don’t have to scan through pages looking for a specific topic, Friedman gets to the point no ‘waffling’, as my lecturer called it.


Although I don’t agree with every point in the book, I still think it will be one I reference right up until Aidan is a teenager.

  1. This looks interesting, i have a few parenting books that i got out of interest to see what others points of views are like you said not everything in them i agree with but its nice to get other perspectives!

  2. Mine would be to always trust your instincts & never take no for an answer, if you feel like something’s wrong then 9 times out of 10 you are right. That’s what saved my sons life when he had meningitis & the hospital told me it was probably just an alergic reaction! xx

  3. It sounds like a really interesting read. I’ve always said that as Mum you will always know what is best for your child.

  4. Love that you can pick this up and down. My top tip? Trust your instincts and take all well meaning advice with a pinch of salt! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  5. Go with what you feel in your heart is right or wrong, knowing from your past and your child’s future things are and were different. Don’t be so hard on yourself, do the best you can. And I totally agree with others, you can listen to others, but you are the best judge for your child and how you want your child to be raised.
