    Good information from young dads to new dads

    I'm not a dad. I am a grandmother to be who bought this book for my son in law. He couldn't put it down. He is eager to be a father, but he is not an avid reader, yet he did enjoy this book. It is a good read from during pregnancy through the early months of the baby's life. It gives the new dad tips on how to be involved from the start - even during the pregnancy. I have also bought for friends who are becoming dads for the first time and plan to buy again for nephews.

    Congratulations! You are going to love this resource.

    So many mom's have showers and receive gifts for the baby. Why not include this book for the dad! Mothers will also want to steal this book to refer to all the great sections on baby/toddler development. The charts on page 52 and 66 organize the developmental advances a baby goes through. The first chart shows everything from how newborns communicate to when you can expect your baby to take their first steps. The Toddler chart spans the time from 15 months to 5 years and discloses when your child will enjoy rhyming games or when they will start to name everyday objects. Many of the sections in this book are very thoughtful and encourage a dad to consider the child in his life and make this new life a high priority. This book is also filled with humor guys will really relate to. Through the seven chapters, men will learn what it takes to be a dad, how to be a good prenatal dad, what to expect at the birth, what changes to expect in the first two weeks and then what to look for in the first year and toddler/preschool years. The 'Many Faces of Fatherhood' is a modern look at fatherhood. Adoption, divorce, unwed fathers, stepfathers and widowed fathers are also given some great advice. 'The most important thing you can do to ensure your child develops good emotional health is to show your love for him or her. Do this, and your child will feel valued, loved, and respected.' --page 68 The last chapter is 'For Mom's Eyes Only.' It explains the 'Myths' of parenting and how to deal with them in a logical way. Mothers and fathers will also love the '10 ways to make time for your children' list on page 13. Turn the page over and you will see why a good marriage is so important to a child. The Index is great for the busy parent who wants to find answers fast. Look up everything from car seats to language skills. This book gives real world tips from fathers on how to be a positive influence in the life of their child. It guides men through pregnancy and childbirth and has practical advice on how men can help care for an infant. Truly, this is moral support to encourage men to become the best fathers they can be. I purchased this book to give to my cousin's husband. They are having their first baby in December and I could not think of a better gift to give to a baby! Yes, this is truly a gift for the child. A dad who has this information is going to be one of the most enlightened dad's on the planet! For mothers, look for the New Baby Book, created by Mothers for Mothers. These books present parenting as an exciting journey. I can't imagine anyone not wanting to start reading this book as soon as they start to consider having children.
