Buy Him a Book
Kim Black, mother of 2-month-old twin girls, took this approach with her mate. "Before the babies were born, I bought him The New Father: A Dad's Guide to the First Year, by Armin Brott. After the babies arrived, I bought books such as Be Prepared: A Practical Handbook for New Dads, by Greenberg and Hayden, and She's Had a Baby: And I'm Having a Meltdown, by James Barron. These books helped him realize that he wasn't alone with his feelings as a new dad."
