Synopsis

When Will I Sleep Through the Night? by Eleanor Birne

All the things they never tell you. You are having a baby. How do you feel? Excited? Nervous? Downright terrified? For most people, even if it is something they have longed for, having a baby is a voyage into the great unknown, a turning point after which their lives will never be the same again. When Will I Sleep Through the Night is a beautifully written account of one woman's experience of pregnancy and the first year of her child's life. Written in diary-style entries, it is a record of the day-to-day reality of having a baby and a portrait of the frustration, fear and overwhelming love that come with it. By turns funny, moving and reassuring, this is a book that doesn't try to tell you what to do or what to feel but simply tells it as it is, a story that is both intimate and universal, an A-Z of babyhood.
