Ann Douglas, Canada’s best known parenting writer, author of many excellent books, and a mother of four, recommended The Baby Bonding Book for Dads in an article in the Toronto Star, “A guide to books about babies and pregnancy.”
Our baby bonding book for dads is in good company.
Ann Douglas also recommends:
The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding (one of the most helpful and comprehensive books about breastfeeding around)
Love in the Time of Colic: The New Parents’ Guide to Getting it on Again (a great book about sex after kids. Yes, you will have sex again. After baby. Honest)
Several other excellent books.
Here’s an excerpt from Douglas’s review of our baby bonding book:
“Looking for a gift for the new dad? (First of all: good for you. Most people forget all about the new dad in their rush to shower love, attention, and gifts on the new mom and the new baby.) This lovely book celebrates the unique bond between babies and their dads through a mix of photographs and positive, encouraging text.“
Douglas totally gets that we wrote The Baby Bonding Book For Dads to inspire new dads to build a closer connection with their babies. Most parenting books are mom-centered (because women buy a lot more books than men, about parenting and every other topic). We wanted to see more books for dads who are motivated to be engaged parents.
Don’t wait until your kid is old enough to throw a baseball.
Don’t wait until you kid is old enough to eat pizza.
Even when your kid looks more like a larva than a human, your baby will be comforted by the sound of your voice, happiest sleeping on your chest, and most secure in Daddy’s strong arms.
It’s never too early to be front and center in your baby’s life.
