The Birth’s Go-To Guide for New Dads by Brian Salmon

This product was recommended by Tony Grenier from Instrumental Global

This is a great book for dads who have decided to support their wives from pregnancy to childbirth and into child-rearing. It features an easy to follow guide that fathers need to follow in preparing for the hospital bag and even when the wife is delivering the baby. It also provides illustrated guides to help breastfeeding moms avoid painful latching and achieve the perfect latch. But most importantly, it features relaxation techniques that the father can do for the wife and the baby.

They Lied! True Tales of Pregnancy, Childbirth and Breastfeeding by Theresa Kane

This product was recommended by Alex Stein from N/A

Anecdote from me- Best book about what it’s really like to be a new dad around a needy baby and having very little knowledge of what’s really going on. This is a true depiction of the life of a new parent. Reading this book will give you hope and maybe some joy during these challenging times. It’s better to laugh than cry and this book helps with both.

The Birth Guy’s Go-To Guide for New Dads by Brian W. Salmon

This product was recommended by Alex Mastin from Home Grounds

Being a father in the 21st century is about sharing responsibility at all levels unlike what has happened in the past so far. Times are changing rapidly and it is only fair that both partners come together as a union and a team to deal with the challenges of parenthood. The book that really made a difference to me is The Birth Guy’s Go-To Guide for New Dads: How to Support Your Partner Through Birth, Breastfeeding, and Beyond by Brian W. Salmon and Kirsten Brunner. An interesting and fun peek into modern fatherhood. The authors are clearly experienced in both personal and professional contexts, and provide extremely helpful insight into what fathers can expect from their new role!

The Birth Partner 5th Edition by Penny Simkin

This product was recommended by Leo Young from Optimized Family

This is a book that all aspiring fathers and new fathers should read. Everything from labor and delivery to C-sections and breastfeeding is covered in this book. The book is currently in its fifth edition, and the author answers any questions and concerns a father would have in an easy-to-understand manner. This is an excellent book for Dads who want to be more than just a father and husband by understanding how everything works and what to expect.

The Expectant Father by Armin A. Brott

This product was recommended by Dave Pedley from YourCub

This is the definitive How-To-Be Guide for the clueless Soon-To-Be-Dad! It’s practically an instruction manual examining every imaginable aspect of first-time fatherhood, including how a dad can get involved in the intimacy of breastfeeding. The book is constantly updated – the 2015 edition was just in time for my firstborn – and manages to connect with dads in practical but hugely insightful ways. I particularly like the illustrations – unfussy, clear, and very informative. The whole book illuminated for me my role as a dad.

The Importance of Dads and Grandmas to the Breastfeeding Mother by Wendy Jones

This product was recommended by Dave Pedley from YourCub

Quite a revelatory book! Breastfeeding is possibly the one area of a newborn’s early life that a dad can really feel excluded from – even jealous! This is an incredibly sensitively written book that shows how a father can share the intimacy of breastfeeding without interfering with a mother’s own relationship with the baby. For any father who doesn’t want to feel left out, the author explores and describes minutely how he can both participate in the breastfeeding experience ad support the mother at the same time, creating a true bond between all three – parents and baby.

The Expectant Father by Armin A. Brott

This product was recommended by Harland Adkins from Fast Food Menu Prices

For a thoroughly modern dad-to-be, The Expectant Father presents a wealth of information on pregnancy and life after baby, including tips for those considering becoming stay-at-home fathers.
