When a person is facing the daunting prospect of parenthood for the first time, it can be overwhelming. The mom-to-be is involved in visits to the doctor, planning, baby showers and getting the baby's room ready (with dad's help of course). But dads-to-be can become overwhelmed too. There is just so much to consider before baby comes home!
One of the most enjoyable aspects of parenthood is reading to your children, even before they are born. Scientific studies have shown that babies in the womb react to the sound of their parents' voices as well as to touch. Enter DaddyScrubs, the website that has gifts and products for dads-in-waiting and for new fathers, too.
This website has excellent products that make excellent shower or occasion gifts for daddy. They are the perfect gift from the doting new grandparents.
I received their Bag O' Books and I have to admit that I was impressed. Enclosed within the 100% natural cotton, earth-friendly "I’m the Daddy Trunk Bag" is:
- "I'm the Daddy" sunglasses
- "I Love You, Daddy!" by Edie Evans
- "What Daddy Bear Loves" by Paige Nickell
- "What Daddy Duck Loves" by Paige Nickell
- "The Daddy Book" by Todd Parr
- "Just Me and My Dad" by Mercer Mayer
- "The New Dad's Survival Guide" by Scott Mactavish
- "Clifford's Day with Dad" by Norman Bridwell
These are some of my favorite children's books, ranging from board books for babies and toddlers to paper books for older children. As baby grows, daddy has his choice of different books. Some are sure to be favorites with adult and child. "The New Dad's Survival Guide" is perfect for any new dad, one which will help him feel more prepared and ready for the big day.
The sunglasses in the daddy bag are a cute touch and the cost is less than the books retail for at stores. A good starter selection to keep dad reading to his little one.
