The title is a bit misleading. This book is definitely for fathers or newborns. It was entertaining, but I was busy reading things with "infant" and "baby" in the title when this book would have done me the most good.

That being said, the book is a very quick, informative, and irreverent read. Perfect for an overwhelmed new papa.

Cute book and good for parents who are feeling overwhelmed and guilty as a means of reassurance that they are not alone. Very short but amusing and informative.
