You've programmed your VCR, you've reinstalled Microsoft Windows, you can even check your e-mail on your Palm Pilot. But none of this experience will prepare you for the world's biggest technological marvel: A newborn baby. As every parent knows, infant technology isn't quite user-friendly, and first-timers have plenty of frequently-asked questions: How does one get the baby to sleep through the night? What is the most recommended way to swaddle a baby? When is it necessary to bring a baby to a physician for servicing? The Baby Owner's Manual has the answers. With step-by-step instructions, helpful schematic diagrams, trouble-shooting tips, and advice on lifelong maintenance, this manual skips the "warm and fuzzy" illustrations and cuts right to the chase. We'd love to see this book become the gold standard for Dads everywhere - it's something he can read while Mum is looking at What to Expect When You're Expecting.

Synopsis:

How can I make my newborn sleep through the night? When should I bring the baby to a doctor for servicing? Whatever your question, you ll find the answer here courtesy of celebrated pediatrician Dr. Louis Borgenicht and his son, Joe Borgenicht. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who wants to learn the basics of childcare.

Synopsis:

At Last! A Beginner’s Guide to Newborn Baby Technology

 

You’ve programmed your VCR, you’ve reinstalled Microsoft Windows, you can even check your e-mail on your Palm Pilot. But none of this experience will prepare you for the world’s biggest technological marvel: a newborn baby.

 

Through step-by-step instructions and helpful schematic diagrams, The Baby Owner’s Manual explores hundreds of frequently asked questions: What’s the best way to swaddle a baby? How can I make my newborn sleep through the night? When should I bring the baby to a doctor for servicing? Whatever your concerns, you’ll find the answers here—courtesy of celebrated pediatrician Dr. Louis Borgenicht and his son, Joe Borgenicht. Together, they provide plenty of useful advice for anyone who wants to learn the basics of childcare.

About the Author

A board-certified pediatrician with the American Academy of Pediatrics, Dr. Louis Borgenicht has run his own practice in Salt Lake City for the last 16 years. He is also Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at The University of Utah School of Medicine, and he serves on the Board of Directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility. In 2002, Ladies’ Home Journal named him the Best Pediatrician in Utah. Dr. Borgenicht lives with his wife, Jody, who has finally learned how to sleep through the night while her husband goes out on calls. Joe Borgenicht is a first-time father who frequently telephones his dad for advice. He is also a writer, a television producer, and the co-author of The Action Hero’s Handbook. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wife, Melanie, and their son, Jonah (who still operates at peak efficiency after his first eighteen months). Paul Kepple and Jude Buffum are better known as the Philadelphia-based studio Headcase Design, whose work has been featured in many design publications, such as American Illustration, Communication Arts, and Print. Paul worked at Running Press Book Publishers for several years before opening Headcase in 1998. Both graduated from the Tyler School of Art, where they now teach. When Jude was an infant, his owners would often program him for extended periods of sleep mode. Paul’s owners, on the other hand, tried numerous times to return their model, believing his inability to grow hair was a manufacturer’s defect.

I bought this for my husband when we had our first baby and ended up using it myself. It is hilarious! And actually quite useful. The binder like kind is better because it has places to fill in information for each checkup and sleep/eating charts and stuff. This one doesn't seem to have that. Just looked it up - you need the "baby owner's maintenance log" isbn: 1-931686-35-4
