Sunday Times Number One Bestseller Happy Mum Happy Baby is now a Number One podcast.

A positive and uplifting book about what it is to be a mother and all things mum and baby by Celebrity Mum of the Year and phenomenally popular vlogger, author, TV presenter and actress Giovanna Fletcher.

Being a mum is an incredible journey, a remarkable experience that changes how we look, how we feel, who we are. As mothers we are strong, protective, proud. We feel a love like no other.

But being a parent can be hard too. It challenges us physically, mentally, emotionally. There are the days where just managing to fit a shower in amidst the endless feeding, entertaining young children and surviving on a lack of sleep feels like an achievement. With so many people ready to offer 'advice' on the best way to parent, it can feel like you are getting it all wrong.

Since Giovanna and her husband Tom Fletcher have had their sons Buzz and Buddy, they have been sharing glimpses of their family life. With an infectiously positive outlook and happy take on all things mum-related, Giovanna has developed a following of fellow parents and mums-to-be.

This is not a book about how to have the perfect family experience - Gi would be the first to admit she is winging it just as much as the rest of us - instead it is an honest, upbeat and incredibly personal account of her own experience of having a family. In Happy Mum, Happy Baby Giovanna shares her own journey through parenthood and in doing so, she looks at what it is to be a mother today, encourages you to be confident in yourself as a parent and celebrates how putting a focus on being a happy and confident mum can really make for a happy baby.

    Downloaded this book to read while I was up during the night with my crying 6month old baby! Made those nights more bearable. Lovely to hear Giovanna’s take on motherhood and to learn that we all have our ups and downs 😊

    A beautifully written book for mums in all stages. Funny, clever and helpful. Nice to know I’m not the only one that wanted to be the ‘oxo mum’. Hope there will be a second book!

    Bought this book and read it within 2 days! I didn't want to put it down. I am not a mum, and don't plan on being one for some time. But when I do, I'd hope to read this book again. Utterly heartwarming. Tears of joy, laughter and sadness throughout! Just amazing!
  • Reading this is like hanging out with a good friend

    I'm not a mum. Nor am I pregnant. Nor did I have any 'real reason' to pick up this book. But I'm glad I did. The honesty and writing style make it feel like your listening to a good friend and accompanying them through the highs and lows of the journey of life. It's preciously honest. And it's a real page turner. It offered me a new perspective and reminded me to always be kind and to sometimes verbalise that kind thought as we see mums doing their thing. Every word comes from a very positive place. I don't usually re-read books but I'll save this on my virtual shelf for that time when I need to be re-grounded and told everything's going to be ok.
