In this men-only class, Dads-to-be learn the ropes and gain valuable knowledge and confidence from veteran dads (and their babies!) who have recently made the transition to fatherhood.
This interactive seminar begins with group discussion centered on topics such as:
- Forming a team with your partner
- What to discuss before the baby comes
- Dealing with relatives
Following the discussion is an interactive session that gives rookie dads a hands-on opportunity to become comfortable caring for a baby. This is done under the guidance of veteran dads who demonstrate burping, changing, swaddling, etc. and answers any questions the rookies have (no topic is off limits!).
The seminar ends with another round of guided discussion, including the invaluable "trouble shooters guide" to crying babies; additional topics include:
- Understanding post-partum behaviors
- Male bonding
- Baby safety basics
Daddy Boot Camp is facilitated by a veteran dad trained from the national organization: Visit BootCampForNewDads.org
