Your first time? A bit nervous? Not sure what happens now?

Expecting your first baby is wonderful, perplexing and at times downright terrifying. As well as all the excitement, a lot of first-time dads can also feel confused, frustrated and a bit left out.

An invaluable resource for first time fathers, Author Nick Carr is a doctor, father and parenting expert who will help you navigate your way through these unfamiliar waters.

From the sometimes mystifying world of antenatal care, to the sleep deprived baby period, Nick examines the experiences and feelings of the new dad. With his unique mix of warmth, humour and insight, Nick addresses key issues such as:

  • She's pregnant, anxious and throwing up. What am I supposed to do?
  • She's exhausted and feeding all the time. Now what am I supposed to do?
  • How do I manage the demands on my time?
  • What kind of dad do I want to be?
  • Sleeping
  • Crying
  • Feeding
