Armin Brott, perhaps better known to some as Mr. Dad, a former Marine and leading parenting author, has been lauded by Time Magazine as "the superdad's superdad,", writing 8 books on fatherhood and helping build better fathers for more than a decade. In addition, Armin has written for The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, American Baby, Parenting, Child, Men's Health, The Washington Post, and dozens of other major publications and websites, helping millions of men become the fathers they want to be—and that their children need them to be.
He is also the host of "Positive Parenting," a weekly radio program, and writes the nationally syndicated newspaper column, "Ask Mr. Dad." As a trusted spokesperson, Armin speaks on fatherhood around the country and teaches classes for expectant and new dads. You can read more about him on his website or blog, DadSoup.
The bestseller, The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips and Advice for Dads-to-Be, does what few other books have done- talk to daddies. When a woman gets pregnant, have many books to choose from- men? Not so much. Enter Mr. Dad, with nearly 300 pages of advice, helpful tips, and reassurances for men who are about to become daddies.
Each chapter includes the following sections:
What She's Going Through is an important look at what's happening with the expectant mother, physically and emotionally.
What's Going On with the Baby gives expectant fathers--and mothers--a concise tour of your future child's development, from sperm and egg to living, breathing infant.
What You're Going Through covers the wide range of feelings--good, bad, and indifferent--the expectant father is likely to experience at some time during the pregnancy. It also describes the way the pregnancy might affect the expectant father psychologically, sexually, and even physically.
Staying Involved contains specific facts, tips, and advice on what the expectant father can do to take an active role in the pregnancy.
If you are pregnant, or at the next upcoming baby shower (and there is ALWAYS an upcoming baby shower, LOL), don't forget about Dad. It takes two to tango, and even if the mister is not getting the stretch marks and swollen ankles, he's going to be a part of that little life. Help him be the best dad he can be. And don't make him read your "Our Bodies, Ourselves- Pregnancy and Birth" :P
One of you can make a soon-to-be daddy (and his partner!) VERY happy by winning this book. The rest of you will have to buy yours here :) Here is how to enter!
