The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook


The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook is every mum’s essential companion and journal BEYOND THE FIRST YEAR - whether you have a toddler or pre-schooler in tow.

Reassuring, joyful and down-to-earth, it will inspire and encourage you – and make you see that YOU'RE A GREAT MUM, JUST AS YOU ARE.

The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook will take you beyond the first year of life with your child up until the moment they’re ready to start school, giving you a place to celebrate all of your victories, no matter how small. It will prompt you to think about yourself whilst caring for others and help you to remember, in years to come, how you felt and just how brilliant your toddler or preschooler was.

With pages and pages of reassurance, self-care and space to write down all your thoughts and memories, The Not-So-New Mum’s Notebook will make you feel good about yourself – and about how you’re already raising your child.

About the author

Amy Ransom

I’m Amy, a mum, and the writer of the Surviving Motherhood blog.

I’ve had three children, and each time has brought its own challenges and joys, because every child is different.

So I created the The New Mum's Notebook and The Not-So-New Mum's Notebook to help every mum navigate the first few years of life with their baby, toddler and pre-schooler.

In these two books you'll find everything I wish I’d known, so I could stop worrying and start enjoying – pages and pages of reassurance, love and support – as well as some space to scribble down thoughts, feelings and memories as you go.

Much love, Amy

PS It's all going to be OK.
