about

The Babyproofers are three women who wouldn't trade their roles as mothers for anything, and they love their husbands deeply. But after living through it and hearing the stories of hundreds of other couples, they know that with young children in the house, you need to block the stairs with baby gates, put plastic covers over the outlets, AND take the necessary steps to safeguard your marriage.

Babyproofing Your Marriage is the warts-and-all truth about how having children can affect your relationship. The transition to parenthood can be a tough adjustment for any couple, but the good news is: you are not alone. Better yet, there are hundreds of simple but effective ways you can stay connected as husband and wife and still be good parents. The authors' evenhanded approach to both sides of the marital equation allows spouses to understand each other in a whole new way. With loads of humor, compassion, and practical advice, the Babyproofers will guide first-time parents and veterans alike around the rocky shores of the early parenting years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It makes more sense After reading this (during morning, midday, evening, and allnighter feedings) it makes more sense what I'm going thought, what my husband is most likely thinking, and that we're not alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for anyone When I first read this book, it was for relationship advice in general. I'm still not sure why my fiance picked that one out, but we are so glad he did! It's easy to read, it's humorous, and has useful suggestions for various scenarios (that, when you think of it, can happen before or after baby). Both of us enjoyed reading it together. Yes, my fiance too. Now, we are expecting our first and feel confident that we are forewarned and forearmed. At least, we are in regards to relationship issues.
