A reading list for Natalie Portman: 5 new mom books

At the LA Times' blog Jacket Copy, Deborah Netburn recommended five books to Natalie Portman, Oscar-winning actor and new mother: her son was born on June 14, 2011.

One book on the list:
"Bossypants": It takes a while for Tina Fey to get to the mothering stuff in her recent memoir, but when she does, it's so good. Fey, like many modern moms, had trouble breastfeeding and rails against those moms with freezers full of breast milk who make women who can't nurse feel really bad about themselves. At one point she challenges a self-satisfied breastfeeding mom to a contest 13 years in the future to see whose child is smarter. Totally inappropriate and totally awesome. Bonus: It's available as an audiobook, so you can listen to it and feed your baby (by breast or by bottle) at the same time.
Read about the other books on the list.
