Savvy Auntie: Required Reading for Cool Aunts and Moms, Too

I don't always see eye to eye with my sister, but when it comes to being an aunt, she rocks. She's fun, cool, and never fails to make my kids feel special and loved. In other words, she's a Savvy Auntie, and I am grateful for her.

Know what else I'm grateful for? Melanie Notkin's new book, Savvy Auntie: The Ultimate Guide for Cool Aunts, Great-Aunts, Godmothers, and All Women Who Love Kids. The title speaks for itself. The book is chock-full of information on how to be the savviest aunt ever, including tips on how to get mom and dad to pick a baby name you love and basics such as how to hold baby the right way.

But it's more than a guide. Savvy Auntie gives us a sneak peek into the world of aunthood-from the "aunticipation" of becoming a new aunt, to the special bond that forms between auntie and child. More importantly, it's a wake up call for all moms and dads on how big of a blessing aunts are in family unit. The more love in our kids' lives, the better!

So whether you're going to be a new aunt or a new mom, read this book. Not only will you learn a thing or two, but you'll laugh along the way.
