You've programmed your VCR, you've reinstalled Microsoft Windows, you can even check your e-mail on your Palm Pilot. But none of this experience will prepare you for the world's biggest technological marvel: A newborn baby.
As every parent knows, infant technology isn't quite user-friendly, and first-timers have plenty of frequently-asked questions: How does one get the baby to sleep through the night? What is the most recommended way to swaddle a baby? When is it necessary to bring a baby to a physician for servicing?
The Baby Owner's Manual has the answers. With step-by-step instructions, helpful schematic diagrams, trouble-shooting tips, and advice on lifelong maintenance, this manual skips the "warm and fuzzy" illustrations and cuts right to the chase. We'd love to see this book become the gold standard for Dads everywhere - it's something he can read while Mum is looking at What to Expect When You're Expecting
