Summary Incorporating diary entries and reflections, this personal account of one mother's struggles during the first 12 months of her son's life to get him to eat openly confronts the social challenges mothers encounter, including insensitive doctors, the marketing of maternity in the media, postpartum depression, and social isolation. The stinging question What if I don't love my child enough? is explored in this highly personal and moving story that argues mothers must speak out about the challenges and traumas they face in order to be understood.
