Dad's Expecting Too: Expectant Fathers, Expectant Mothers, New Dads and New Moms Share Advice, Tips and Stories about All the Surprises, Qu (Paperback)
Syd's Staff Pick (April 2014): Trying to get my husband to read a book is nearly impossible! When we stumbled upon this new adventure of parenthood, we both needed some advice and information on the journey we were about to start. This book ended up being a life saver, and one my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed! It is an incredible book for all dads-to-be with information presented in a very real, relatable, and comical way. This resource covers everything a man would need to know and more – emotional highs and lows, mood swings, you can look but you can’t touch (things are sensitive!!), and the stress of the delivery room.
“Dad’s Expecting Too!” mixes a lot of advice and real world stories, and I highly recommend it for all parents-to-be!— From Syd's Staff Picks
