At Last! A Beginner's Guide to Newborn Baby Technology

You've programmed your DVR, you’ve installed a wireless Internet connection, you can even check Facebook on your cell phone. But none of this experience will prepare you for the world's biggest technological marvel: a newborn baby.
Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, The Baby Owner's Manual explores hundreds of frequently asked questions: What's the best way to swaddle a baby? How can I make my newborn sleep through the night? When should I bring the baby to a doctor for servicing? Whatever your concerns, you'll find the answers here—courtesy of celebrated pediatrician Dr. Louis Borgenicht and his son, Joe Borgenicht. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who wants to learn the basics of childcare.

Baker & Taylor
Presented in the style of a lighthearted technical manual, a reference for parents of newborns combines step-by-step guidelines and whimsical schematic diagrams to provide answers and guidance for hundreds of concerns from getting a baby to sleep through the night to consulting a pediatrician.

The information is basic but helpful. It is the format that made me laugh at every page (something that is welcomed in the first weeks as a new mom).

Great down to earth explanation of how to look after a baby. Great for new parents. It explains everything in a very funny way, but understandable.
