San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 12, 2004
Fatherhood expert Armin Brott's groundbreaking book, THE NEW FATHER: A DAD'S GUIDE TO THE FIRST YEAR, has been completely revised, updated, and expanded. The new edition features the latest research on hundreds of topics, from what's going on at the hospital right after childbirth to how a dad can support his partner when she's having trouble breastfeeding. THE NEW FATHER: A DADÂS GUIDE TO THE FIRST YEAR includes updated advice for dads in the military and others who are separated from their babies, information on preemies and multiples, and specific guidance for adoptive, divorced, and older dads. It also provides invaluable information and practical tips on such issues as:
Â The baby's physical, intellectual, verbal, and social development
Â Understanding fathers' emotional and psychological development
Â Analyzing the baby's temperament
Â Planning finances and choosing the right life insurance policy
Â Understanding how the new mom is feeling and how the baby will change your relationship
Â Being involved even if you're only able to see your baby for a short time every day
Â Juggling work and family
Â Introducing the baby to reading, music, and even art
"Becoming a father is one of the most dramatic changes a man will ever experience," says Brott. "And the first year of fatherhood is critical, because that's when the initial bonds between father and child form and the foundation of a lifelong relationship is built."
Written with the same thoroughness, accessibility, and humor that have made Brott's NEW FATHER series the most popular fatherhood books in the country, THE NEW FATHER: A DAD'S GUIDE TO THE FIRST YEAR (paperback, $12.95, hardcover, $18.95) incorporates the latest scientific research, the authorÂs personal experiences, and those of the hundreds of new dads he's interviewed. The series, which also includes the best-seller THE EXPECTANT FATHER, is the gold standard in its field. And with over one million copies sold, Brott's books are the essential resource for new dadsÂand momsÂeverywhere.
