5/5 Stars

A must have book for new parents and new-again parents

This book is amazing!!! Amazing in the format - how cool it is to be able to click on an embedded video to actually view what has been described in the paragraph above - and amazing in the great and thorough content covered. I feel all the bases are covered for both new parents and new-again parents.


5/5 Stars

I highly recommend this book for any new or expecting dad

I was not that into reading baby books but when my wife saw an interactive one with audio, videos, etc. she thought it would be perfect for me. I have used this as a reference for a couple of days and it's been very helpful. It has reinforced my instincts about some things like solid food and taught me some new things like life-saving techniques.


5/5 Stars
