At Last! A Beginner's Guide to Newborn Baby Technology
You've programmed your DVR, you've installed a wireless Internet connection, you can even check Facebook on your cell phone. 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.
This clever instruction book treats a baby like an item of technological hardware, with detailed yet simple advice about practically everything involved in the first year. Unlike many technical manuals, this one is extremely user-friendly in design. A clear but comprehensive table of contents features chapters like "Feeding: Understanding the Baby's Power Supply," "Programming Sleep Mode," and "General Maintenance." These are broken down into subchapters like "Understanding and Installing Diapers," which are also subdivided. It's very easy to find exactly what's needed at a glance. The manual also catalogs and deals with a broad range of illnesses and mishaps. Amusing diagrams and drawings accompany the text.
