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.

Funny concept at first...you appreciate the different approach than all the other baby/pregnancy books out there. But then it starts to lose its appeal after a while. Some of the diagrams are actually vague like it's right out of an IKEA instruction booklet.

Ugh. I don't like the analogy of babies with things, even though done facetiously. Equating caring for a baby with operating electronic equipment may be ok for a stand-up comic, but not for a baby care manual. If you are careless with your gadgets, it's no big deal; caring for a baby can mean life or death.
