She's had the Baby, you're a daddy -- now what?

He includes tips on: recapturing the romantic days of just the two of youvacationing with toddlersdistinguishing between needing to call the pediatrician and pestering the pediatricianhaving sex while your 1-1/2 year-old is in the house
Hardly a standard child-rearing book, "She's Had a Baby" doesn't diagnose allergies or suggest developmentally appropriate toys. Rather, in bite-sized observations, Barron champions the joys and anxieties of daddyhood, while helping a man to cope with the ups and downs a relationship can go through during this time.
"A delightfully useful book. James Barron manages to be both light-hearted and profound as he leads fellow dads through the pitfalls of babyhood. Most importantly, he helps a new parent hang on to the sheer joy of these magical months." --Sylvia Ann Hewlett, President, National Parenting Association
