The Truth About Babies is a raw, funny, beautiful and sometimes nauseating look at the first year in a baby's life. Its honesty and uncensored approach gives those who have had a baby, or those who are about to, insight into all that is unforgettable, and also what's best to forget. Every page encapsulates a fresh and disarming observation accompanied by an equally entertaining photograph. A guide for first parents as well as a book full of moments that resonate with anyone who has spent any time with these weird and wonderful creatures, this gorgeous book captures it all: the precious moments, the times of panic, the mess, the pleasure - the ear-shattering, nose-wrinkling, eye-rolling truth about babies!
After completing a Bachelor of Economics in Sydney, Michael Stanford took the unlikely step of becoming an advertising copywriter in London on a whopping 25 pounds a week. To support his day job, he became a babysitter for his niece and nephew, most of his sister's friends, and most of their friends. Over time, Michael honed his skills in dealing with tears, tantrums and projectile vomiting, which equally helped his career in advertising. In 2006, Michael and his wife Sarah had their first baby Angus and two years later, celebrated the arrival of Lilla. Michael runs his own business and lives in Scone with his family, and writes whenever he can.
