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.
Peter Downey is the author of three marriage and parenting books.
