The Minimalist Mom’s Guide

to Baby’s First Year

MMGUIDE300
Parenting is a demanding job and the first years with a new baby are exciting and ever so tiring. I know, I was recently a new mom myself. I was sleep deprived, overspending and being swallowed alive by closets and counters filled to the brim with baby toys and all the gadgets and gizmos I thought I needed. After finding minimalism I realized it didn’t have to be that way.

I could have more space, more time and more money in my wallet.

I could ‘have it all’ by forgetting about the Joneses and those ridiculously long ‘must-have’ baby lists.

This book is full of ideas for:

  • doing more with less
  • avoiding the clutter trap of too much baby stuff
  • slowing down so you can enjoy the early months with your new baby
  • saving money
  • creating a peaceful spacious home no matter the square footage of it
  • finding more time in your day for things like sleep (!), relaxing and bonding with your new baby. Oh, and did I mention more sleep?

Praise for The Minimalist Mom’s Guide:

There’s more to this book then just a fight against “stuff” it also highlights the value of experiences, gifts of time, family, and other types of support. Highly recommended. – Sandra H

This book changed everything I had previously thought about how much stuff was required to have a baby. The idea of owning less things (seriously, only one sippy cup??) blew my mind, but have helped me let go of some of the excess and embrace just what I need, not everything I want. – Laura

    Hi there Racehl,
    I just stumbled across your blog – thank you for sharing. As a first time mum I felt totally overwhelmed walking into a baby store the other day. I just bought your book and look forward to hearing more from you.

    Thanks!
