Hilarious reviews of the newborn experience


What if you could leave feedback about your life with a newborn baby. just like you do about the breakfast at your local cafe, so that others could decide if this is the right move for them? Would you give it one star… or five? Parenting blogger Rachel D’Apice has done just that, with hilarious reviews of newborn babies for the enjoyment of parents everywhere.

If you’ve ever browsed through YELP, Urban Spoon or Trip Advisor to see what activities, hotels and restaurants are worth checking out, then you have to read our favourite YELP reviews of newborn babies – the good, the bad, and the brutally honest.
