older mothers with a delightful warm-hearted approach. The book shows older
mothers that they are not alone, that their ambivalent feelings are normal,
and that motherhood at an older age can be both tiresome and invigorating.
The book is loaded with examples that will bring a smile to the reader.
Advice is provided on dealing with yourself, your child and others in the
family who may not understand the emotional and physical changes in an older
mother. A nice touch is the "Journey Book" suggestions included at the end
of each chapter. These are active steps that the older mother can take to
capture and understand their feelings while creating memories for the
future. "Hot Flashes Warm Bottles" is highly recommended for those who have
become mothers in their 40s or those who are contemplating older motherhood.

book, I am always eager to read it. Nancy London's newest more than met my expectations. Hot Flashes Warm Bottles is thorough, fun, and useful. Written from the heart of a mother, this book offers superb emotional help and support for the growing throng of first-time moms over forty. Let Nancy London introduce you to the many midlife mothers (and their children) she has listened to. You will will cry and laugh out loud. And you may even find yourself wondering if a late-in-life child may not be in your future too. It is a rare and exquisite work."...
