For the dad-to-be, author Armin Brott's The Expectant Father: Facts, Tips
and Advice is a terrific gift, offering insight into pregnancy and the first
few weeks of parenthood. One BabyCenter mom wrote in her Parents' Pick(TM)
comment, "I bought this book for my husband as a gift. It not only has helped
him to cope with everything changing in our lives, it's helped me cope with
him!! It offers advice on unexpected things like dealing with 'mommy's'
mood-swings to helping in the labor room. It's a great gift that I think both
parties will appreciate."
For new dads who love electronics, the BabyCenter store offers the
high-tech Child View Video/TV Monitor by Safety 1st(R) that allows him to
watch and listen to baby in the nursery while he works at the computer or
relaxes in front of a ballgame. Before putting the baby down to sleep, Dad
can confidently cradle her while she splashes about in the Euro Bathtub by
Primo(R), a mega-sized wonder-tub with two contoured positions.
For dads who like the outdoors, there are several great gifts that get the
family out of the house so mom can enjoy a morning off. The Sport Utility
Jogging Stroller D'lux by BOB(R) was built for dads who are serious runners
and who are serious about spending more time with their little ones. If your
favorite dad prefers biking, the Kids on Board Bike Trailer by Safety 1st(R)
is a great way for dads to enjoy exercise with up to two small children in
tow. Or, Dad can bond with baby on an afternoon hike with the Premaxx
Adventure Carrier by JJ Cole(R). The adjustable shoulder straps and unique
design allows Dad to hold baby snug and secure while hiking and walking.
Don't forget to protect Dad from the sun with one of BabyCenter's most popular
items, the "New Dad" baseball cap by Celebration Designs(R).
Little ones will love giving Dad a Classic Red Wagon by Radio Flyer(R) for
sharing play time, trips to the farmer's market and strolls around the
neighborhood. They can stay close to home and help Dad mow the lawn with the
Little Landscaper Mulching Mower by Little Tikes(R). Or, Dad and child can
hit the road with the new Voyager Trike by Radio Flyer(R), which includes an
adjustable, stroller-style handle and loads of extras including a black vinyl
cargo bag that doubles as a backpack for quick trips to the corner store.
