Bebé: livro de instruções
Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, The Baby Owner’s Manual explores the common concerns of every first-time parent: What’s the best way to swaddle a baby? How can I make my newborn sleep through the night? When should I bri...more
This is so funny! It really does have useful information, but I'm a mom twice over, so nothing in it was news to me. If I were to gift this to someone, it would be the dad-to-be.
As funny as it is, the graphics catch your eye and the information is laid out in a logical manner. It literally is an instruction book about babies. I think it would take out some of the mystery that usually scares guy silly.

Great gift, good enough reference guide.
The book's cute owner's manual format was way less bothersome than I thought it would be especially once I started getting into it. This would make a great gift for a new mom or dad.
Препоръчвам я, ако не ви понасят по-класическите бебешки книги! Може и да не е 100% достатъчна, но е много, много по-добре от 0 подготовка по темата.
