Becoming a parent can be daunting . . . terrifying, in fact.

This is especially true for dads. Where’s the road map? Well, you’re looking at it. This book from the editors of Fatherly, the largest digital brand for dads, is a one-stop source for fathers-to-be, empowering them to be the best parent they can be--with both confidence and joy.

New fathers grapple with both practical and existential questions: Is my baby supposed to do that? How do I afford to make my family thrive? How does swaddling work again? Who am I, and what kind of dad will I become?

Fatherhood is here to answer all of these questions and more.

This comprehensive guide walks fathers through everything they need to know--practically, emotionally, and philosophically--over the course of the first year of a baby’s life.

The content is divided by developmental stage:

  • Pregnancy up to birth
  • Infancy (the first 500 days)
  • Toddlerhood (days 500 to 1,000)

By offering data, anecdotes, and expert-driven analysis, the authors prep dads for what’s ahead, letting them know they’re not alone on their journey.

Fatherhood is the book every father and father-to-be needs.

How-to images and a mission statement worksheet are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.
