ABCs for Expectant Dads: review & giveaway

**WINNER: #34 = Kristel! Congratulations! Winner has been emailed and has 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Thanks to everyone for reading and thanks to Todd for sponsoring!

Author Todd Barrett Lieman was nice enough to offer me a copy of his “go-to-guide for guys” book, “ABCs for Expectant Dads: The Ultimate A-Z Resource for Dads-in-Training.” I was really excited to include it in Steve’s push present… it’s so hard to find great dad-to-be gifts!

When I got this book in the mail, I was very pleasantly surprised to see a handwritten note from Todd himself on the first page of the book. He wrote:

Steve- good luck & congrats! You’re in for the ride of your life! Cheers, Todd

How nice was that?! I didn’t even know he knew my husband’s name. There is a page at the back of the book for notes and I left Steve my own mushy letter there 🙂

I figured I’d glance through the book before giving it to Steve and instead, I ended up reading the entire thing in one sitting. Every A through Z, all 113 pages of it. I learned things too! This book was great–a very easy read. Todd really covers everything a guy should know and does it in a humorous way. I circled and highlighted things for Steve and some of my favorites were…

Baby Proofing: “…only allowing the bad wines within the baby’s reach…”

Back Labor: …”If you choose to ignore your partner’s pain, you will instead have the opportunity to be divorced.”

Breastfeeding: …”someone did invent this sort of inflatable, fake-boob contraption that the non-breastfeeding partner or adoptive mother can wear around the neck, into which formula or breast milk is inserted…” (I scared DH by telling him that he was SO getting one of these! haha)

Egg shells: …”what you’ll be walking on for the better part of 40 weeks during the pregnancy… Remember: she looks beautiful pregnant…”

Golf: “Who are you kidding?”

Sports: …”If you’re smart… you can ‘volunteer’ to watch the baby, feed him, and change his diaper during the game.”

Wife: “After this experience, if you don’t think she is the most amazing person on the planet, you should be shot…”

And soooo many more! He warns of blood and gas and mood swings… or sudden urges to lip sync to the Backstreet Boys, haha.

What did Steve think? He loved it! There are a few preggo books for men out there, but they’re either “long and boring or treat you like you’re stupid.” This one is so handy in the A-Z format, you just flip to the word you want, read the short paragraph and you’re set! Plus, it’s funny.
