Becoming a new Dad can be a difficult job. Not only do they have a new baby to care for and learn about but they also have to look after the mother of the baby, and cope with less sleep. It is a job that many people forget and the mother tends to get all the attention and not the father. Therefore, we have put together a list of gifts suitable for new fathers. So, whether you want to give a new father a present when baby is born, before baby is born or as baby grows, you should find something suitable.

This book covers all sorts of things that you will need to experience such as bonding with the baby, supporting baby’s development, managing work arrangements, finance and sorts of other information to prepare you for fatherhood.
