Staff Reviews

An amazing book about healthy boundaries of love and self care. Parents of all genders have been put through the ringer this past year. This book reassures you - parent and child - that taking a break "doesn't mean I love you any less," because sometimes mama just needs a minute. A must-have book for any mama of young kids.

— From Maggie


Sometimes, Mama needs a minute—and that's OK!

From Nicole Sloan, founder of the Weird Mom Club—an inclusive Internet space for nonconforming moms—Mama Needs a Minute is an affirming, entertaining book for moms and toddlers to share. All about balancing a mama's needs with those of her kiddos, this sweet story teaches that love can look a lot of different ways. For kids, the book is a gentle introduction to concepts of self-respect and setting boundaries, and for moms, it’s a reminder to practice self-care.
