Fatherhood is a gift handed to us from God. I am truly fortunate to be a dad. I m Going to Be a Dad: Now What? Everything You Need to Know about First-Time Fatherhood begins by taking you through all stages of the mother s pregnancy. Most chapters are punctuated by a conclusion and case study, which adds to the book s completeness. The work discusses ways you can baby proof your home and how to select the correct car seat for your newborn. I m Going to be a Dad offers succinct anecdotes that not only new fathers should know, but also information for first-time mothers. You will learn how to change your infant s diaper, give your baby a bath, and protect and nurture your new bundle of joy. Page 102 of this book states, Naturally, since your baby will be falling over a lot, you should go around the house and put padding on all sharp corners. This is especially true in the living room, where you will have to put padding on the tables, shelves, and even on the sides of walls or in doorways. Author Craig Baird does not beat around the bush with this handy book. As a newbie to fatherhood, you are expected to protect and support the mother and child and to be the rock of the family. To be forewarned is to be forearmed, and by reading I m Going to Be a Dad, expectant fathers will learn that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. From coping with your partner s pregnancy and choosing the right doctor, to attending the right Lamaze classes, this practical book offers sage advice. Although I am far past my baby-making years, I found the book to be cathartic. It offers a wealth of support for men who need a 101 Fatherhood Instructional Guide. As a prospective father, what you need to know is contained within these pages. Having a medical background, I found the reference section to be informative and helpful. I m Going to Be a Dad is a fun read, and by soaking up its information, you will become a better father. This work alerts you to the possible pitfalls of pregnancy, as well as your child s first few years of life. Embrace it! I m Going to Be a Dad reminds us that not all fathers are created equal, and we have a lot to learn and know. The book serves as a life jacket for firsttime fathers and does not disappoint. There are other expectant father books out there, but Baird s I m Going to Be a Dad will keep you turning those pages, hungering and thirsting for more. I am fairly confident that prominent parenting experts would agree with me that this book is a must read for all dads-to-be. Welcome to the world of paternity! --Dean Tong, MSc.
