5.0 out of 5 stars BLINDSIDED BY A DIAPER.... 18 Dec. 2011
By Kathleen M. Kusel - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My husband and I gave this book to my son and his wife who have two young boys (aged 5 and newborn). We read it before we gave it to them and we fell on the floor laughting. My son stated that he and his wife enjoyed it as well. I would recommend this for all young couples who have just had their first child or have several young children.
5.0 out of 5 stars The 'Real'est book I've read about becoming a parent overnight 16 Dec. 2014
By VRW - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was incredible. Every person should read it BEFORE having children. I read it afterwards because I was so taken aback by all the overnight responsibilities no one talks about. All you see in the commercials and ads for moms are happy women skipping down the block in tandem with their stroller buddies while pushing their buggies with huge smiles on their faces. This was the first book that I read that was REAL. The ups, the downs, the good, the bad, the ugly and the thankfully, sometimes happy. It was nice to feel that I got to see a real life glimpse into other relationships. Frequently we feel terminally unique and/or alone in society, when in reality other people are experiencing life in similar ways or ways individual to them but the feelings are the same. And sometimes we get lucky and make it out happily to the other side. Either way, this was an incredible eye-opener and feels like 30 different friends got together and spilled their inner truths to you. If you're looking for a self-help book, this isn't it. These aren't professional counselors. They are real people that are parents and are simply telling you their truths. And I thank them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Married with children... 2 July 2007
By Bonnie Bernal - Published on
Format: Paperback
Feeling alone enmeshed in the complexity of life with kids and a spouse/significant other? Trust me, you are not.

In Blindsided by a Diaper, Dana Bedford Hilmer has craftily compiled a collection by various respected writers discussing their personal accounts of how the dynamics of parenting has transformed their cozy and not so cozy relationship of two to the sometimes chaotic whirlwind of family life.

The refreshing honesty of the men and women authors featured in Blindsided by a Diaper is tantamount to a productive stint on the therapist's couch. Or rather, a group therapy session where parents vent!

Whether you are expecting or already have a house full of little ones or even contemplating having children, this book will be your survivor's tool and many of the authors who candidly shared their experiences in this collection will become your friends!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great 9 Jan. 2008
By C. Mayo - Published on
Format: Paperback
My husband and I bought this book when our daughter was about 3 months old and we realized that our relationship was REALLY strained. We enjoyed the candid essays, but found that some of them simply did't apply to our situation. Though it was comforting to know that others struggled the way we do. Sadly, some of the essays did not end happily. Some end in divorce, and one even admitted that he yearns for his days before his child was born. I kept hoping that it would have a happier ending.
