The award winning Daddy Day Care is an outrageously funny and honest guide to parenting for dads. Find out what happens when one dad stays at home during maternity leave to bring up his baby daughter. What is it like to be the only bloke in playgroup? How do you bluff your way through mum chat? How can your sidekick provide a cheap alternative to the gym?

Aimed at dads (and curious mums) Daddy Day Care offers a truly alternative look at the poo soaked chaos of full-time childcare.

Daddy Day Care includes chapters on:
- weaning and feeding
- local playgroups
- a bluffers guide to parenting books
- sleeping and napping
- teething and first aid
- DIY and jobs around the house
- baby gadgets
- what to wear – for children and dads
- a brief history of fatherhood
- pottery cafes and raves
- Zen and the art of fatherhood

Best served with beer – or strong coffee (for the chronically sleep-deprived parent).
