This is a friendly survival guide for any guy who's facing the joy of being a first-time dad The Complete Idiot's Guide[registered] to Being a New Dad is both highly usable and practical, with a bit of encouraging wit in between. Most first-time dads don't know the first thing about dealing with a newborn, and while first-time mums might be interested in more complex topics that range from breastfeeding to colic, most new dads just want to know how not to mess it all up. First time dads will learn the essentials for caring for a newborn, from what to expect when baby first arrives to how to change those first nappies without a disaster. You'll also master the basics of feeding and burping as well as getting baby to sleep (so mum and dad can sleep, too). Additionally, find out how to help your partner as she heals and deals with the enormous changes that she's experiencing both mentally and physically. The Complete Idiot's Guide[registered] to Being a New Dad is the perfect survival guide for any new dad who needs to be armed with a little essential knowledge and a whole lot of encouragement.
