"Let’s face it: there’s a lot of shit that happens when you become a parent that you have to find out for yourself, especially in that first year. This brilliant book will cover it all."
-Scary Mommy

"Humorous revelations offer insight into a natural process that can and often does completely overwhelm the mother. . . An amusing and accurate examination of life with an infant.”

—Kirkus Reviews


“Pregnant women who want an honest peek inside what’s to come will be convinced to nap while they still can, and moms with kids will laugh out loud at Dais’s quirky insights and strong opinions.”
—Parents Magazine


"From poop to post-partum depression, she presents a no-holds-barred look at all of the changes and challenges that new moms and dads can face, along with the three little words every infant-toting parent wants to hear: It gets better."

—Parade Magazine


"Dais and her team of MOFLs (moms on the front lines) guide parents (moms, especially) through the first 52 weeks of your child’s life with honesty, clarity, humor, complaints and encouragement on a myriad of important subjects from breastfeeding, endless crying and vaccinating to relationship problems, loss of freedom and inaccurate Facebook statuses (“OMG, I love my life!”)."

—Kirsten Ott Palladino,

"The Sh!t No One Tells You took me right back to those first weeks of new motherhood—truly the most empowering and frustrating (and frightening!) of times. With heartfelt encouragement and insight, Dawn Dais is a must-read for first-time moms."

—Rebecca Woolf, author of Rockabye: From Wild to Child

"Dais…can spot the humorous side of most situations, whether describing an exasperating—yet laugh-out-loud—trip to McDonald’s with her youngsters, or the “snot, tears, and bliss” of dancing with them in a pizza parlor. Dais offers a commonsense yet comical view of the toddler years, which she wryly sums up as a “confusing cluster-f of a time.”

—Publishers Weekly


The Sh!t No One Tells You About Toddlers captures the frustrating, inane, chaotic, senseless, and joyfulness that comes with parenting. Called the “handbook for parents on the edge,” reading this book feels very much like bonding with other mom friends, both of you seeking answers, wanting to do better, and oh yeah, please pass more wine. Readers should come away feeling like “it’s going to be all right, we’re all in this together.” Dais is an encouraging, supportive, and hilarious author, sitting in the same boat with her also very sleep-deprived readers." (4.5/5 Stars)
—The San Francisco Book Review


“It's a perfect gift for expecting parents who have a good sense of humor and appreciate a frank, candid look at the ugly-yet-wonderful side of parenting.”

—Motherhood Moment


"Not only does it comfort me by informing me that my toddlers' alien behaviors are common and that I'm not alone, it provides a lot of comic relief, and it also provides a lot of great tips on how to address common challenges that many parents of toddlers face."

—Hawaii Mom Blog
