Diapers were the least of it. It was learning to understand the new mom in my life that threw me the curveball.
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 29, 2010
When was the last time you overheard dads discussing baby care, how to support their wives post-delivery or how to handle the challenges of fatherhood? These important conversations don’t happen often enough, that’s why Dads Adventure is leading the way with its newly released DVD: Crash Course for New Dads.
Crash Course for New Dads DVD is the first DVD created by dads, for dads, covering all the topics a new dad needs to know.
The DVD draws on 20 years of advice from the real experts (veteran dads who are waist-deep in fatherhood) to show dad-to-be how to take care of his growing family: new baby and new mom.
“Diapers were the least of it. It was learning to understand the new mom in my life that threw me the curveball,” said one veteran dad during a Daddy Boot Camp class.
Taken from interviews with new dads and their families and Boot Camp for New Dads sessions, which are sponsored by Dads Adventure, veteran dads arm Dad-to-be with the information and confidence he needs to become a great father.
From start to finish, men discuss pregnancy, childbirth and caring for newborns. Dads open up about the challenges they faced while becoming fathers. Real dads demonstrate how to change, bathe and feed a baby. Dad-to-be gets to hear other men’s parenting successes and failures. Dads help prepare Dad-to-be to understand what new mom is going through and how to support her as she makes the huge transition to forming a family.
Although fathers have become more and more involved over the years, most of the information for dad is filtered through the eyes of moms. Crash Course for New Dads DVD is men showing men and talking about issues that are unique to dads. When men see other men taking care of their babies, they come away thinking “I can do that too.” And they do.
Boot Camp for New Dads is a non-profit all about men ushering dads-to-be into fatherhood via advice, tips and hands-on baby interaction. Boot Camp focuses on dad's role in the new baby's life, his new role as a father, how to support new mom and the changes she is going through and how to support mom and dad's relationship to give baby the best environment possible.
Today with over 200,000 graduates, BCND is the nation's largest program for fathers, operating in 260 communities across 43 states, the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force, and expanding internationally. For more information please visit http://www.bootcampfornewdads.org
