I got this for my son in law when my g'daughter was born. The writing and illustrations demonstrate a sense of fun. There's nothing innovative in the text, but there's a sense of re-assurance to the new dad who's nervous about whether sleeping through baby's initial wake-up cries will scar her for life.

Good entertainment reading for a new dad or expecting dad! Sadly, there aren't many gifts for a new daddy; this was a simple little one to let dad know he's important too! It's funny, light and also, a bit insightful to boot!

I thought this book was great. There are so many urban legends and/or "old wives tales" that new parents get while pregnant. It was nice to read something that one was praticable and more importantly written from a males prospective. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and read it over and over.

This was my husband's favorite of all the gifts we got. We don't agree with all the advice in the book, but it is very funny. We have had several laughs together as he reads me funny excerpts. It is also the perfect "bathroom book" for men, as it is mostly one-pagers. Dads are often forgotten when it comes to gifts for expecting parents. My husband was happy to have something just for him and I love to see his enjoyment as he reads about becoming a dad.

Dads have worries too, even though often they are not as vocalized as the new mom. This book is written by a father for fathers and takes away some of the worry, offers perspective, and reassures the new father that everything will be fine. This is one of the best things I recieved as an expecting father. Well written, great insights.

This book is funny but also has some helpful advice and insights, such as don't forget that the baby monitor is on when you go to check on your baby when you have guests - they will be able to hear you! My husband found some of his experiences validated, and we've enjoyed it together when he reads it aloud to me while I'm breastfeeding.
