An Expectant Dad's Guide to Pregnancy
Is my baby developing normally? These are just a few of the questions that new parents will ask once they bring home their bundle of joy. This is the probably the best book geared exclusively towards expectant fathers. No lame jokes. Just straight up useful information. The Expectant Father covers the pregnancy process and how dads can help in it, as well as provides tons of useful info for dads on raising a kid.
They also cover why dads are so important in the development of a child and how children influence fathers.
The Expectant Dad's Survival Guide
Alongside standard practical tips, Carr offers advice on how to handle the adjustment to your new role as a father and the way your life will change once your baby arrives. I have to say, I really liked this. Started reading because, well, I have to, but it was very enjoyable. Technical knowledge delivered with a cheeky wit that made the read effortless. Other reviews have noted the laddish quality of the writing and I agree, but I gotta say, I quite like that.
- Su última reverencia (Sherlock Holmes nº 8) (Spanish Edition).
- Environment Betrayed: The Abuse of a Just Cause.
- The Lemon Miracle: 101 Uses for Health, Home, Beauty;
- Estequiometría. Clases de Química. Cálculos Estequiométricos y Relaciones de Masa (CLASES DE QUIMICA nº 1) (Spanish Edition)!
It's like your mate chatting to you in the pub after the birth of HIS child. I found it engaging. View all 4 comments. Nov 23, Michael rated it it was ok.
Far too laddish. Feb 28, Paul rated it liked it. However, this book has some major flaws May 26, Lloyd rated it it was ok. More like The Expectant Lad Dad's Survival Guide but helpful in parts, particularly the chapters that cover post-birth which provided a useful reference point for me in the first 10 days or so.
Someone's bought me the sister book that covers the first year and I'll probably read it. Oct 16, Justin Taylor rated it really liked it.
Can't recommend this highly enough. Really enjoyed the information and has help me prepare. Apr 22, David Booth rated it it was amazing. Informative to be tested in a few months, that is , enjoyable. Jan 03, Mister Jack Le Beau rated it liked it. Very helpful to anyone about to experience impending fatherhood, with a lot of important information.
From A to Z
The one issue I have with this book is the fact it's not written with me in mind. It's written for those who go down the pub with the lads to watch the football and the kinda guy who can't breath without his wife's or girlfriend's permission, suggesting you'll be in "big trouble" if you buy her the wrong chocolate bar.
Oct 23, Owl rated it liked it Shelves: , ebook. Liked it. A lot of information and stuff one not only a dad-to-be should think of and all the "pregnancy-and-birth"- bits explained that left even me as a woman quite often quite confused. Ocassionally written in a funny way. Sometimes maybe not that appropriate, but nevertheless a nice and informative read. Sep 26, Dan rated it liked it. My fiancee finished reading this before I did, and learned a lot more about what was happening to her than any of the pamphlets and brochures she'd been given by the hospital.
A thorough and comprehensive walk-through of the pregnancy and post-birth experience, which is also funny without being too 'laddish' - definitely worth reading, whether you're a father- or mother-to-be Dec 26, George rated it really liked it Recommends it for: expectant dads. Shelves: non-fiction. Being both informative and amusing, this is a worthy investment for any expectant dad in need of some knowledge and advice.
A book that goes through the different stages of pregnancy and post-natal periods, with advice and information each time, imparted with a sense of humour and accessibility.
Highly recommended. Jan 18, James Day rated it really liked it. Would recommend to prospective Dads as a reassuring aid. May 27, Annie rated it it was ok. Some useful information but it was so dumbed down in places it was actually inaccurate. Stockfish rated it it was amazing Mar 17, David Horsburgh rated it liked it Aug 05, Matt rated it really liked it Dec 22, Kenneth Marsden rated it liked it May 29, Jonathan rated it it was amazing Apr 14, Ands rated it liked it Jun 02, Sandy Robertson rated it liked it Jul 06, Shareen HD rated it it was amazing Apr 06, Graham Frost rated it really liked it May 14, Poppy Aldridge rated it it was amazing Jun 18, Luke Merrett rated it liked it Sep 03, Jez rated it really liked it Oct 03, Joe Adams rated it liked it May 04, There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
