Sold Out


As a new or expectant parent, you may be scared sh*tless. But you should have no fear. You can embrace the challenges of parenthood with humour and grace with the hilarious book Sh*t On My Hands: A Down and Dirty Companion to Early Childhood.

The book is broken up into chapters for each month of baby’s life up to age two. It covers topics such as napping, bathing, changing diapers, and feeding. It also covers how to stay sane and single parenting. This book is written by Bunny Banyai and Madeleine Hamilton. It was published July 2014.

No baby shower is complete without Sh*t On My Hands, which will have the expectant parents both learning and laughing about the challenges to come. We recommend pairing Sh*t On My Hands with How to Be a Hip Mama Without Losing Your Cool. And for the new and probably very tired parents, add the Pure Indulgence Hamper to help them kick back and relax a little.

A Humorous Gift for New Parents

Let’s be real, as wonderful as parenting is, new parents are going to find that there’s a few surprises in store for them. Gifts for new parents should be about more than nappies and baby booties. Everything But Flowers does have a great range of baby gifts and those essential gifts for new parents, but if you want a novelty parenting gift, or just something to make new parents laugh, then this is the parenting book for you.

Sh*t On My Hands: A Down and Dirty Companion to Early Parenthood tells it like it is. This parenting book doesn’t skimp on the essentials - it covers all the practical stuff any new parent will need in caring for their newborn, like bathing, feeding and that ever-elusive thing called sleep. But sometimes new parents need more than a step-by-step guide to child-rearing. Writing from the heart, Bunny Banyai and Madeleine Hamilton reassure new parents with an arsenal of advice and encouragement. In a refreshingly honest, compassionate, and hilariously funny approach to parenting, Sh*t On My Hands gives anxious new parents the reassurance they need. From tips for handling unwanted advice, ways to adjust to the parenting life, and dealing with poo on your shirt, this book is a truly helpful gift for new parents. With chapters all about adjusting to fatherhood, Sh*t On My Hands is also a great parenting gift for men.

Sh*t On My Hands makes the perfect baby shower gift, especially if you want your parents-to-be to share some understanding laughs and hugs from those that have already enjoyed the many blessings (and battles) of the baby years. Gifts for new parents that take a light-hearted look at becoming a new mum or dad can be a welcome addition to that baby shower gift basket.
