Crash Course For New Dads

I have had the chance to review the book Crash Course For New Dads: Tools, Checklists and Cheat-Sheets by Greg Bishop the Head Coach at Boot Camp For New Dads. And can I just say, where were you for my last two children? Seriously this is THE book for all new dads to have. I am amazed with this book and I think you will be too.

This book has it all from a pull out childbirth coaching guide to many detailed charts, I love this book. It takes the one thing that not too many men take the time to really get to know about and explains how to handle it all and to help the mother get through labor, delivery and beyond. Here is more on the book:

Welcome to Crash Course for New Dads, an orientation to fatherhood unlike any other, anywhere. It’s what you really need to know, from guys who tell it straight, in easy-to-grasp lists, charts and tear-out tools.

    I was thinking about my brother-in-law for this book….

    I would want him to know how he could best help and support my sis…. he’s very excited but sometimes as a new mom you’re not sure what you need help doing… everything is soo overwhelming…

    It would be nice for him to already know how to help:) And even better for him to know the newborn care too so he can help:)

    I wish my DH knew how much it means to me that he try to experience this with me by trying to feel the babies (twins) kick, going to appointments, etc. I think dads-to-be (and families) would benefit from trying to be part of the pregnancy as well as after the baby arrives. Thanks for allowing me a soapbox. ;)
