Hands-on, inspiring - and funny - this Aussie classic is the bottomline for new dads on pregnancy, birth, newborns and young children.
Dr Peter Downey knows babies and kids, and his best-selling book - now in this 20th-year anniversary edition - helps first-time dads prepare for what's coming their way...with a grain of salt and a smile on their face.
Fully revised and updated, he explores the joys and trials of new parenting, including:
Surviving pregnancy and childbirth;
Nappies, breast pumps, sleep deprivation;
Living with a baby in your house;
The gear you need...and the gear you don't; Navigating the online parenting world;
Lots of stuff about sex;
And more importantly, how to be a switched-on dad in the 21st century.
Topped off with a glossary of handy words new dads need to know (and some they don't), as well as words of wisdom from other ordinary fathers, So You're Going to Be a Dad remains the most engaging, reassuring and down-to-earth book for new dads around.
