Book Blurb -Diary Of A Baby Candid Confessions Of A Baby From 0 To 2 Years by Mahak Wadhwani

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside your baby’s mind?
Doctors, scientists and psychologists have been trying for centuries to get a sneak peak into what exactly goes on inside a baby’s brain and are no closer to revealing the truth. Well this book is here to not just give you a sneak peak, but a no-holds barred candid confession right from the horse’s…err…baby’s mouth!

“Diary of a Baby” is a candid, witty take on life from a baby’s perspective written in the form of diary entries. Each chapter follows a new stage in the baby’s life – starting to crawl, first solid meal, first day of preschool etc. Each entry is followed by an interpretation of that phase of the baby’s life with anecdotes from the author’s own parenting experiences.

Praise for “Diary of a Baby”:
“I felt as if my own son was speaking to me”
“I was in splits!”
“Every mom can relate to it”
“A must read for a new parent.”
“Better than any baby book I have read”

Formats Available – Kindle

No. of Pages – 108

Book Review  – Diary Of A Baby Candid Confessions Of A Baby From 0 To 2 Years by Mahak Wadhwani

When I started reading this book, I had this movie from the yesteryears ‘Baby Geniuses’ in mind. This particular movie progresses on a premise that said that kids were extremely knowledgeable and could communicate among themselves until a certain age, after which they crossed over and became mere mortals.  Though I was a teenager then, the movie remained with me and I went back to watch it once I became a mother. This book, “Diary of a Baby …”  is an addendum to that movie and will also remain with me for a long long time.

It is well known that the senses of a baby are active right from the time when the baby is in the womb. And that’s where the author sneaks into this unborn baby’s diary and makes it public for us helpless parents, so that we can understand exactly how this little life perceives the world. I must say, that if reality were to go by anything that the author depicts, a poort child is forced to have very strong views about the world right from the word go. And then as the kid traverses her life path through birth, feeding, crawling and walking she is hell bent upon changing things and bring the world down to her whims and fancies.

The narrative is so engaging and realistic that for once I believed that Mahak Wadhwani actually got hold of a magical wand and peeped into her baby’s mind.  Things do get gross at times, as expected with a new born or a pre-toddler who has just discovered her physical might, but in the end they leave you in splits and a bit more learned.

P.S. – If you are looking at a light humorous read yet emerge learned as a parent, ‘Diary of a Baby – Candid Confessions of a Baby from 0 to 2 years’ is the book for you.

Oh I’d love to get my hands on this one. When I started my parenting blog, some 12years ago I wrote it like a diary from the twins’ perspective. So this would be rely fun. Thanks for sharing.
