I was in a bookstore, and happened upon this book. I picked it up and started to read, and began to giggle, out loud. I felt that I was being too loud, so I closed the book and put it down until I felt I was under control again. I then picked it up to read, but burst into giggles again. This happened several times. I wanted to buy the book in the store but it was kind of beat up, so I ordered from Amazon. I gave this book to my friend for her baby shower, and it was the absolute hit of the party! You know how everyone passes the presents around, "Oh, how nice, ANOTHER tube of Desitin!" "Oh, of COURSE she can use another frilly baby headband!" and no one really looks at them or cares? Well this book took about an hour to make it around the circle; its progress was punctuated with shrieks of laughter. We even called her husband in and he read it and totally cracked up. My friend says she is actually going to use the spinner on the front of the book.

I think my favorite parts of the book are the "Testing Baby's Bottle", "Introducing Baby to Pets", and "Bonding With Baby", but to be honest, they are all hilarious. I read the book about 10 times before I gave it to her and I still giggled each time. I don't have any babies, but I think I might just buy this for myself for laughs. Fantastic shower gift.

My wife and I received this book as a gift shortly after our child was born, and we love it! It provided the laughter that we desperately needed after a week without sleep. Even after the fifth time through, I still laugh out loud at most pages. It's especially fun to share with friends and family when they come over, and now I know not to wake the baby with an air horn.

This book is a perfect gift for new parents.

This book is hilarious! I can't think of a better gift for someone who is about to have a baby. Sure, you could buy them a Dr. Spock book, a car seat, diapers, or some other equally boring gift, but this ten dollar treat will have them actually remembering who you are! Of course, it also might end your friendship if you are implying in a not-so-subtle manner that you question their parenting skills and believe their baby is in imminent danger. But even if they do never speak to you again, at least you will always be remembered for this wonderful book.

We received the Safe Baby Handling book as a baby shower gift, and it is indeed hilarious. We have read countless dozens of books about pregnancy and babies in preparation for the arrival of our twin boys, and to be honest, a lot of them are really downers. While most books focus on all the ways you can go wrong, all the terrible things that can and will happen and how your life, and ability to sleep ever again may be over, this book focuses on the very basics of baby care. It provides simple illustrations on how to and how *not* to care for your baby. Among my favorites: DO feed baby with a bottle in a gentle embrace, DO NOT feed baby a chicken leg. DO Calm baby with a gentle pat to the back, DO NOT calm baby with a bottle of whiskey.

This was exactly the sort of humor we needed after all those serious books, and I think any parent-to-be would enjoy this book. It was a hit at the shower among seasoned parents as well. As a bonus the cover contains a spinner which promises to randomly divide responsibilities between Mom and Dad. Though our babies are not born yet, my husband and I have tested it out in anticipation for the big day, and my only complaint so far is it seems rigged, the thing lands on Mom about 4 out of 5 spins!

This is one funny book! I tried to read it to my husband, the key word here is tried, because I couldn't get the words out! I was laughing so hard I had tears rolling down my face! My husband laughed just as hard and he's more the laughing on the inside type! I bought it for my daughter-in-laws baby shower and it was a HUGE hit!!! Buy it!

Before this book, I had only heard about babies and their kind of terror, let alone how to handle them when I do eventually encounter one! I'm still highly suspicious of babies - they make noise and are often covered in various food debris and poo. Now I at least know how what to do when one is handed to me. I gave this as a gift to my sister - apparently she needed this advice badly!

This book is absolutely hilarious. It's almost gag-gift worthy, but considering some of the stupid mistakes first time parents can make (and how seriously they can take themselves sometimes) it's a great reminder to loosen up, but think before you act. I will be buying this for every new parent I know!
