About This New Dad
My name is Kwapi Vengesayi and I am a first-time father.
When I found out we were pregnant, I was beyond excited. This was something I had dreamed of. Having children is something I have always wished and hoped for, but I always found myself waiting for the right person and the right time. And when I met my son’s mother, now my fiancé, the wait was over. And about a year and half into our relationship, we started working towards having a baby, and soon after, we knew the little one was on his way.
But with every passing month and every ultrasound visit and heartbeat heard through the fetal doppler, the more nervous I got. It was a good kind of nervous, the delicate blend between excitement and the realization that I needed to get ready. I wasn’t worried so much about the obvious things such finances, health and life insurance or the baby shower and registry, but more so, the everyday and more obscure things such as safe sleep and SIDS, perinatal depression, safest car seats and strollers, picking the right pediatrician and more.
This site details those first-time father jitters and the many steps and resources I discovered along the way to set my anxieties and step into fatherhood with confidence. From personal anecdotes to product reviews, I hope this site does for you what many of the things I share did for me: provide piece of mind.
