We Screwed Up So You Don’t Have To
So the kid’s butt is redder than a baboon’s and he’s screaming like a crazed hockey fan. What to do? Powder or butt paste? Who can a new father ask?
Relax: The guys at DadLabs have you covered. Full of hilarious and practical information inspired by their award-winning Web site, DadLabs Guide to Fatherhood will teach you:
     •  Why sex is overrated (and other lies new fathers tell themselves)
     •  The incredibly disgusting varieties of baby poop
     •  Why washing bottles will not make your balls fall off
     •  Essential OB/GYN office survival tips
     •  Things you should never ever say during labor
     •  Why other parents’ children are inferior to yours
     •  And much, much more!
Full of guy-friendly, earthy, sometimes off-color, but always practical advice, DadLabs Guide to Fatherhood proves that being a guy with a sense of humor and being a skillful parent are not mutually exclusive.
