Henk Hanssen has given us a fun little book here. Aimed at `modern' dads-to-be, the book is written in office-speak, referring to the baby as `the product', the mum as `producer' etc. It's a humorous and novel way of looking at the subject, although does get a bit tiresome after a while. Still, like I said, a great concept and perhaps would appeal to dads more than your run-of-the-mill baby manual. It covers mainly the first six months of a baby's life, and is limited in detail, so further reading may be required. A couple of criticisms: Hanssen suggests that some babies may sleep through the night at 6-13 weeks - he should clarify what he means by sleeping through. I'd hate for dads to read and expect their babies to sleep 12 hours solid - it rarely happens! He suggests that at roughly three months, night feeding becomes a thing of a past - pah! There's a brief mention of baby-led weaning, but he focuses on purees. Perhaps BLW hasn't really caught on in his native Holland. On a positive note, he mentions the dangers of using disposable nappies and discusses the benefits of using cloth ones. He does also mention co-sleeping. I like this book. Hanssen doens't take himself too seriously and manages to cover the babycare basics.
