Format: Paperback
I purchased this book for my husband,but I'm very disappointed. It offers no suggestions to help a new father spend more, enjoyable time with baby. Fathering is scarcely addressed. Its attitude toward breastfeeding is hostile. Breastfeeding is described as controversial. Some of its' passages border on dangerous misinformation. It implies an endorsement of feeding baby cereal a month before the pediatrician recommends you do so; that ashtrays be kept out of reach rather than giving up smoking all together. States you will buy a bigger car seat at 8 months when baby weighs 20 pounds, but fails to clarify an infant must ride in a rear-facing seat until both 20 pounds and one year of age. It states you may give eggs and honey to a baby 8 months of age. Neither are safe till baby is one year old. Four of its' twelve chapters are on money management, but it fails to discuss life insurance. Its' coverage of stay at home parenting does not take into account typical daycare costs and other work related expenses.

PARENTING PICK FOR GROWN-UPS
Crib Notes for the First Year of Fatherhood, By Everett De Morier. In their efforts to speak the language of men, many books for new dads offer little in the way of useful information and end up being patronizing to both sexes. Crib Notes is an exception. It not only treats men as if they're intelligent but also offers sensible, often humorous, advice on both emotional and practical matters, Topics range from the financial --- how to save for college --- to the interpersonal --- how to schedule time as a couple, without the baby. Moms may find this breezy, sometimes goofy, list-filled book almost as helpful as their parents will.
JOSH LERMAN.

This is a great book for a soon to be father. It is very informative about what to expect from the mother and newborn. It has great financial tips to help prepare for the upcoming expense. He also throws a little humor in which makes it a little more fun to read.
