"Parents are looking for a professional to discuss their parenting questions with the ideal routine, co-sleeping pros and cons, breastfeeding techniques, baby proofing, weaning tips etc.
As I embark on this journey of becoming a parent in the digital age, I have equipped myself with what every soon to be parent has these days: an e-book about dealing with a pregnant wife, a baby proofing guide for your home, nanny cams to keep an eye on the wife, walkie talkies for in-home communication, bookmarks of emergency delivery procedures, including YouTube step by step videos from professional EMTs on the mobile phone and even one touch emergency keychains within reach.
