There is not much in the world that can prepare guys for the life-changing transition that occurs when they morph from “Dude” to “Dad”. So much is written for new mothers and new parents, but little is tailored specifically for dads-to-be and new dads. Here are five books recommended by Little Steps Daddy Contributors.
All books are available at www.amazon.com.
“Babyproofing Your Marriage: How to Laugh More, Argue Less, and Communicate Better as Your Family Grows” by Stacie Cockrell, Cathy O'Neill and Julia Stone
Both practical and humorous, this book guides first-time and veteran dads alike through the minefield of marriage post-kids. Don’t let marital scorekeeping, granny wars, or torpedoed libidos bruise the relationship with your spouse. Babyproof Your Marriage!
“Baby 411: Clear Answers and Smart Advice For Your Baby’s First Year” by Dr. Ari Brown
More of a reference guide than a book, it is a practical, quick reference to help new dads build confidence and get into the groove of fatherhood. A bit of advice to the new dads: keep it accessible, because you may find yourself checking and double-checking it daily.
