There's a new infant in the house and baby's not the only one crying. You're crying happy tears, tired tears, and overwhelmed tears and that's when the wisdom, sensitivity, and empathy of women who've been there prove invaluable.

In A Cup of Comfort for New Mothers, you will meet fifty mommies who've lived and loved through those terribly wonderful first months home with baby just like you. From a first-time mom faced with keeping her little miracle safe and happy once daddy goes back to work, to a mother who helps her four-year-old son make room in his heart for a new little brother, these moving stories provide the support and reassurance you need to enjoy your new role-and your baby-to the fullest!
