I went shopping with my pregnant best friend over the weekend, and she bought this book for her husband at Barnes and Noble.  It looked funny, but seemed to have a lot of good information.  I will ask her what he thinks of it ๐Ÿ™‚

I just ordered this one through Barnes and Noble for Darling Husband – it got pretty good reviews on Amazon

@AnamCara: Be Prepared was DH’s favorite book he read. He’s read 3 or 4. It looks old school but it’s super funny and he could relate, relieve some pressure and get some ‘secret’ Dad tips.

I also liked Dad Labs which has a related video on Amazon called Due Dads.  They try to make it really humorous ( their weird sense of humor) for the guys.  The video got Darling Husband motivated to read pregnancy/parenting material b/c before that he was mainly just a magazine browser or home improvement picture books.

The two books I have are written by men (obviously) and all they talk about is how their wives turned into orgasmic sex machines. I was so annyoned I threw them out so I can’t *not* recommend them to you.

I got Darling Husband The Caveman’s Pregnancy Guide from the library as a joke. He also read husband coached childbirth and a few sections of the thinking woman’s guide to childbirth at my urging so he better understood why I’m going to try for natural/drug free.

@flamingred:  I checked out “What to Expect When Your Wife is Expanding” from the library for my husband and flipped through it at the coffee shop next to the library before heading home… I thought it was useless and insulting so I returned it without even bringing it home ๐Ÿ™‚

I spent several hours at Borders looking through the dad books one afternoon and I was appalled by most of them. It seems like many authors believe that men are caveman-idiots who are terrified of women and birth. I finally selected The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin and my husband really likes it a lot. He is even teaching me some things he learned that wasn’t in my other books! It’s a good book if you want your partner to be an involved participant in the pregnancy and birth.

@FreeRangeMom: That was a good book. I read it and it’s on DH’s list to read once he is done coaching for the year and has more time.
