Overview

A Dude's Guide to Babies: The New Dad's Playbook is a fun user's manual for every dude who's sweating all the small and big stuff about bringing up his little dude or dudette. With seven children between them (and wives who "helped somewhere in there") Richard Jones and Barry Robert Ozer share straight talk, practical advice, and personal experiences (their own and those of other dads) to ease the stress about cleaning, feeding, and playing with your newborn, as well as keeping him or her safe, happy, and not in need of too much therapy. This guide reveals what to do in the delivery room ("Houston, We Have Splashdown"), how to baby-proof your home without going over-the-top, the inside scoop on poop, questions to ask the doctor for a well-child visit, and it also includes "Pop's Quizzes" so dudes can test their Dad-fu (think Kung-fu only with more diapers and fewer mystical quests).The funny, short chapters will keep new Dads interested as well as allow them time to catch a few minutes of the game before the baby wakes up. This is the must-have book that tells what to really expect after all those months of expecting...and how to thrive (and not just survive) as a new dad.

    I loved it. This book had me rolling on the floor with laughter. Not only that, but I actually remembered the tips and tricks from the book. Although I'm sure my son wondered why I kept smiling and laughing while I was changing his diaper.

    This is a really good book. It's definitely worth reading, especially if you're a new dad like me and you don't have time to suffer through all those huge books on babies written for women. This books is by a guy for guys. Great stuff.

    Fantastic, ROFLMAO book for dads! Excellent information packed into a very funny and easy to read format. This book is a must read for new dads.
    If you are the type of guy that just can't handle "what to expect when you are expecting," this is the book for you.
    Seriously, the book is filled with excellent information, and you don't have to read it cover to cover. Its well organized to allow you to jump to a specific chapter to learn what you need to survive.
    This will surely turn out to be one of the classics, a book for guys written by guys.

    If you┬┐re a dude and a recent Dad, then this is the guide for yo

    If you’re a dude and a recent Dad, then this is the guide for you. “A Dude’s Guide to Babies” by Richard Jones and Barry Robert Ozer is a humorous, light hearted look at a very serious topic: How to navigate life with a new little one in tow?
    I totally enjoyed the personal, although somewhat embarrassing, accounts by the authors and their friends about the many challenges and lessons learned during the initial years of fatherhood. It’s geared toward guys, but I must admit that gals can gain some valuable insight from this guide as well. From how to avoid being peed on to when to switch to solid foods and everything in between, this book covers just about every topic concerning newborns and toddlers. If it didn’t, references are included for further investigation. I felt some items were a bit repetitive, but I imagine with a baby in one arm and this guide in the other, the reader may appreciate it.
    With numerous top ten lists, references to movies dudes could relate to, and quizzes so easy that anyone up to their ankles in dirty diapers can breeze through with flying colors, I recommend this book to any dude planning on being a dad or recently surprised with the delightful news. After having such great fun with this guide, I am totally looking forward to what these guys would write about being dads of teens.
