A Dad's Guide to Babycare

By Colin Cooper
Authors:
Colin Cooper
Conceived both to teach men the best ways to care for their babies and to reflect their masculine approach to childcare, this book is a comprehensive guide on how to manage every aspect of caring for newborns to older toddlers. A further feature is that it offers help in illuminating and helping to resolve contentious issues over care that frequently arise between partners. Designed to be user friendly, with dozens of step by step and other action photos, it is also filled with tips and anecdotes from fathers who share their hard-won expertise with their peers. As childcare is increasingly shared between couples or performed exclusively by men, it seems only right that men should have a guide of their own.
