Esmeralda Rupp-Spangle
Lame. Advice for guys who are total douchebags by a guy who kind of reads like a douchbag under-cover. The type of dude who would advise you to tell your wife she doesn't look fat ("even if you think she does")... too irritated after 3 or 4 chapters to bother finishing it, but I do acknowledge that there are guys who are such pricks that they wouldn't think of this "common courtesy" (be nice to your wife, do extra shit while she's pregnant and don't bitch about it) type advice, and that it's pro ...more
One of the best book out there for really helps to make dad feel a part of the pregnancy and he will be a better husband and father because of it! :)
I agree with Esmeralda's review. Someone should write a book for expectant fathers that assumes that we actually want to have a child.
This was my first pregnancy book so I don't really have anything to compare it to (Daddy's First Pregnancy Book!) but I found it to be an informative, enjoyable read. About 90% of the content is pretty much the same stuff that the mother would be reading, but there are also discussions on how to be a supportive partner. I was also surprised to find how funny the book is, though much of the humor is admittedly pretty corny. It's definitely a book geared more towards hetero cis male fathers, but n ...more

Dad's Pregnant Too! This is a great guide to help dad prepare and enjoy the first nine months of his childs life. You know how it is. Focus is all on mom, after all she is carrying the baby. But where does dad fit in after the deed is done? Well here is a way for him to know where and what to do. What type of partner is he? How he can make mom feel special. The trap of those baby stores where everything looks like you need it. And all those in between things like the baby's development and why m ...more

For the most part, this is advice that couldn't be more obvious. Stuff like, "Don't call her fat" and "Be kind to her." Then there's the gamut of advice to cover different personalities. Stuff like "Pregnant women might be really grumpy" followed by "Pregnant women might not be grumpy at all." All of this is peppered with corny jokes and repeated pleas to "please submit your own ideas to my website so that I can add them to my next book." Mr. Harlan, please don't write a next book.

I found this book very informational and funny at the same time. It's a great book for any guys who are having a baby. The author is really funny and provides a lot of good information about what to expect without getting too technical. It also gives some really good advice for how to deal with certain situations during a pregnancy and how to prepare for and deal with the changes that your partner will be going through. I gave it 4 stars because there were a few moral viewpoints that I disagreed ...more
I read this over my maternity leave and learned more from it than most of my pregnancy and new mom books. It's a really great books for first time parents and breaks the parenting topics down to an understandable level. It's concise and very poignant for me at this time. My husband read it and loved it. Love it love it love it.
IMO, much better than 'What to Expect.' Practical & easy to read, without the weird, leftover-from-the-70s (or 80s) awkwardness that creeps into a few pregnancy/baby books I've read.

That said, you only read a few (or one!) of each of this type of book, so all baby book reviews should be taken with a grain of salt, I think.

As a soon to be first time Dad, I got a lot of good info out of this one. It's easy to read and mixes a lot of real world stories in with the advice. If nothing else, it helped me mentally prepare for what is to come. Thanks to our neighbor Diana Cleveland for lending it to me.
Read this just for research purposes only!! :)

Overall, okay. Not much in there that I didn't already know. I think it would be an easy introduction for dad, to the not-really-talked-about aspects of pregnancy and childbirth.
A helpful guide to pregnancy from a guys perspective - covers a lot of the same information as most other pregnancy books but is more accessible. Recommend if you have a dad who is expecting.
Definitely recommend this comical, informative book to first-time dads-to-be. A lot of helpful, insightful information about a topic I knew nothing about: pregnancy.
Colin Kemmis
Funny and informative. Good balance of research and anecdotes.
I just dont know if I can say I enjoyed a book that is a "how to"...
Excellent book. Informative and funny, a must-read.
This is a fantastic book for the Dad to be, like me.
