This book is exactly what's described in the description here: A comical take on the traditional baby's memories book. For someone who was a little overwhelmed at the amount of stuff out there that's targeted towards new parents (read: designed to guilt new parents into buying their schlock so you don't feel like you're neglecting your child), this book was a breath of fresh air. Realisitically, neither I nor my wife would have ever completely made use of a straightforward baby memories book, and in fact, I have yet to meet anyone who actually did. This book, on the other hand, is entertaining by itself so you don't feel that its purchase was a complete waste even if you never fill in any of its pages.
Some gems from the pages include: "Diameter of baby's head" followed thereafter by "Diameter of hole baby's head came through." There are places to record baby's first projectile vomit, and even baby's first DWI. There's even a ledger of expenses you can fill out which start out with hospital expenses and even include cost of spring break, cost of first auto repair, and cost of "finding oneself".
This is funny, funny stuff. It's not intended to be a serious memory book for any child, but it provided me, a parent, with plenty of giggles.

I picked this book up because of its catchy title. I don't have any kids, but many of my friends do and I am always looking for the perfect baby gift. I read this book from cover to cover and laughed all the way through. I highly recommned this book to anyone looking for a baby gift for the modern couple.

I stumbled on this book by accident and immediately thought of a handful of people who could use it and appreciate it. Kids do say, and break, and spit up, and do the darnedest things and Baby's First Tattoo prompts you to record them. A must for any recent parent.

The mark of a really choice comedic book is when someone who isn't even in the target demographic picks it up and can't put it down until after reading it all the way through. I first saw this book at a Best Buy, laughed hysterically, then after wiping away my tears, recorded the title into my Palm Pilot for future reference. Right now, there's an unsuspecting pregnant friend of mine out there about to get this book...and she's going to LOVE it! There seem to be a couple reviewers here who think this book is actually supposed to be a record keeper or something to read a million times over. Someone mentioned that the book doesn't contain evergreen cultural references. (Gee, if that were a sign of success, then Stephen King would have been in big trouble a long time ago.) This is an "in the moment" book for a time that is best lived, well, in the moment. Great job.

I received this book at a shower, and it became the hit of the party - guests took turns reading from it aloud.
Granted, if you are looking for a traditional fill-in-the-milestone baby book, this isn't it. But, if you (or the parent-to-be) would like a little humor mixed in with the diaper bags and layettes, this book is perfect.
On the days when parenthood is more than a little daunting, I pick it up for a much needed laugh.

This is a great gift when you're tired of giving the same 'ol ho-hum thing. I don't have kids, but if I did, I would really enjoy getting this book. You will be proud of this refreshing change!!

My mom gave me Baby's First Tattoo when I had my second child. Every time I look at it I crack up laughing. For three years I waited for someone I know to have a baby, and FINALLY I got to buy this book for someone else! If you actually fill out this book, you may need family therapy. Contact Dr. Phil ASAP. Every parent needs a good laugh, which this book easily provides. Need a place to save a smear of baby's first projectile excreta? Want to record the name of your nanny's first lawyer? Her second lawyer? How about a family tree with branches for everyone from Mom and Dad to "egg donor" and "Daddy's special friend?" Look no further, this book has it all!

I have read some of the reviews of this book and I was disappointed at the number of people who were not enjoying this book. My sister-in-law received this book from a friend, so I went out and bought it for my friend. I feel modern parents, or the younger parents will enjoy this book more. I wrote a little insert on my friend's front cover saying, "I hope you never have to use this book. I thought it was cute and I wanted you to know I was excited about the birth of the baby." It's true. I hope no one has to actually write down half of the things in this book. It's a nice conversation starter. It's great reading material. The authors made this book one of a kind. More and more people are looking for books and shower gifts that make a statement. This will do it!
5 stars for orginality.
5 stars for funny.
5 stars for thank god I don't have to use this on my children!
