I received four fatherhood books over the holidays and this was one of them. The illustrations are mildly humorous, but the content fell short. Not really a bad book, but definitely not great. If you want funny, there are better choices.

Great, practical advice, except for getting a baby to sleep. It sounds harsh, but being a father of 4, including 4-month old twins, I found it better to simplify the bedtime ritual. For infants, put them in bed, kiss them goodnight, turn out the light, and close the door. For the twins, we let them put themselves to sleep. No rocking, no white noise, no music, no art of the transfer this time around. Much easier, and they sleep. Also, avoid using pacifiers. They become a crutch and god help you if you don’t have one when you need them. Other then that, great advice.

Definitely funny. But not helpful at all. My husband got it as a gift. He read it initially just because it’s his best friend that gave it to him, and had a few laughs but didn’t help at all in the caring for the newborn. He relied more on the ones written by doctors and pediatricians.

explains also in pictures the most wondering situations, a good guide to keep in hand.

My husband bought this book for himself and he loves it – six months on he is still dipping into it at bedtime. And so do I! He also bought a copy for my brother who was unsure at first but soon discovered it is more than just funny but has lots of useful advice too. Definitely beats other ‘humorous’ dad’s guides hands down.

What I must take issue with though is that it perpetuates the idea that you should spend the first six months of the baby’s life rocking him/her to sleep and then at six months you should suddenly abandon him/her to cry alone to get to sleep when they only know what we have taught them! If we started as we mean to go on, they wouldn’t get this conditioning in the first place.
