When my wife told me she was pregnant with our first child I was scared down to my socks. I didn’t know the first thing about babies. What’s a layette? And why does my wife want to buy one now? What are we going to do with all the pink dresses when we have a boy? Which end of the baby do you diaper? Why won’t it (No! He or she!) Stop crying? And why does my wife keep talking to me like I should have known these things since I was 5? (Because boys usually don’t!) Why is she shopping so much when the baby isn’t even due for 6 more months?

If you’re like I was when I was first a daddy, and want to avoid some of my mistakes, and take advantage of some of the things I’ve learned, this is the book for you. While it’s not all you need to know from conception through toddler years, it’s a good start.
