This will arguably be one of the shortest product reviews you’ll ever encounter on my dad blog. Simply put, this book is the real deal and a must-have. And regardless of your family dynamic or structure, don’t let the title discourage you from picking it up, The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year is not just a handy resource for “dads”or the “biological father”, but for anyone helping raise a child.
From tracking your little one’s physical and intellectual development to getting more information on how you can help them hit those verbal and social milestones, this is a great handbook to have on your shelf. You may not open it every day, but during those moments you need some reliable insights, tips and tricks that are based on research and vetted sources, you can’t go wrong with The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year.
A Few Examples of When I’ve Used It:
- Learning about each of his vaccinations and what they are for;
- Understanding his crying and needs;
- Baby massage;
- Most problematic foods for baby and why;
- Good Toys vs Bad Toys
Some resources are more reliable and trustworthy than what your Google searches will throw in front of you sometimes. Each link and article tells you something different and leads you down a rabbits hole of inconsistent information and rising anxiety. But by having The New Father: A Dad’s Guide to the First Year on your shelf, I can say with confidence, you will be able to avoid some these sucky, time consuming and anxiety-triggering moments.
