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.
One of the first things covered is "The Baby: Diagram and Parts List" a ...more

It's not the most detailed or exhaustive book around, but that for many people is a good thing as too ofte ...more

The actual information easily matches that of other parenting guides, but avoids the elements that most annoy me among other books in this genre -- namely the insulting repetition of key information and the padded "anecdotes" from o ...more
That said, for someone with zero experience with babies, this book was actually helpful. How do you pick a baby up? How do you change a baby's diapers? How do you calm a baby at night? The book's coverage of a lot of topics (especially sleep time) are shallow, but the breadth makes up for the depth. You will probably need to read more ...more
