The Newest Guide to Fatherhood ‘You’re Going To Be A Dad!’ Hits the Shelves
Oh, ‘Dad-Life’. Where do I begin? For those just getting started on their new role as a Father, there are lots of lessons to be figured out. Every child is different and equally worthy of your time, love, and affection. Having said that, some days are really hard.
Among some truly excellent ‘How To’ Guides for Parenting, one of the most recent additions to the list is ‘You’re Going To Be A Dad!: The New Dad’s Guide To Pregnancy and The First Year of Fatherhood’
Learn from a whole community of dads so you’re fully prepared to be a great first-time dad and partner.
The moment you find out you’re going to be a dad is one of incredible joy, shock, and anxiousness – often all the same time! This detailed guide, from the writers and dads at DaddiLife – the worlds leading online platform for fathers – provides the reassurance and practical advice needed for modern-day dads. It addresses the real challenges that new dads and dads go through, while also providing the answers at every step of the way – from conception and early scans, through to delivery and the full first year with your baby, including the important milestones at each stage with your new extended family.
What you can expect in this new dads guide:
✓ How to be one team throughout with your partner: A look at the science of what is happening week by week for mother & baby, as well as the psychology of what’s happening for dad – and how to go through the experience with empathy and confidence so you’re one team together throughout this life-changing journey.
✓ A focus on the real issues dads go through: This isn’t a book that will tell you ‘just don’t forget to put the beers away.’ Instead, we treat dads as equal parents and go beyond just what’s at the surface level and into some of the deeper challenges around postpartum, mental health, physical changes, relationships, sex, and much more.
✓ Insights from multiple dad perspectives: Key learnings from our in-depth interviews with more than 50 new fathers from multiple backgrounds (e.g. dads who have conceived naturally, gone through IVF with their partners, dads of twins, and more), that also includes their reflections from COVID-19 and what they would do in any future restriction.
This book is a result of 5 years of research and understanding of what dads experience throughout pregnancy and beyond and gives dads the confidence and clarity they need so they have a plan at each stage (and it’s great for partners too!)
I read the digital copy of this and it covers more than a few of the things I wish I’d known during my hectic first year of Fatherhood.
From learning you’re going to be a Dad to getting through sleepless nights, there’s a story and tip for it all.
While many Parenting books from “experts” give advice that never seems to ring true, this spoke to me like one dad to another. It’s a casual read with none of the pressure that I found with those monstrously overwhelming guides.
As a Father, it’s really easy to feel lonely and unsupported, especially when the Moms often get the majority of the assistance. While they are doing all the hard work, as a primary supporter, the Father is often overlooked. This book actually helps with that.
I’d happily recommend this to the new Dads out there.
