As a tongue in cheek rough guide to caring for a newborn baby, Handle With Care combines factual information with the imagination and personal experiences of director and first-time father, Jun Iwakawa. The resulting visual interpretation plays out in the form of a humorous, often warped, infographic.
Split across nine categories: Bonding, Sleeping, Feeding, Poo/Wee, Bathing, Clothing, Playing, Transporting, and First Aid, this is a whistle stop tour of practical data and tips which leaves the viewer to decide what is fact and what is most certainly not.
