The reason we are so successful is our respect and support for new fathers, and the fact that everything we know comes from other men much like you. So join us and take advantage of our collective wisdom, and then add to it based upon your own experience.

Boot Camp for New Dads workshops

Our concept is simple: dads-to-be learning the ropes from men who have successfully made the transition to fatherhood, who also bring their babies to make the experience hands-on and real.

Boot Camp workshops begin with a discussion centered on topics such as "Becoming a Dad", "Forming a New Family", and "Caring for New Moms". Following the discussion is a hands-on opportunity for prospective dads to become comfortable in caring for babies under the guidance of veteran dads who demonstrate burping, changing, swaddling, the "trouble shooter’s guide" to crying babies and more.

The final hour is an interactive session featuring the best advice on issues including bonding, work hours, safety, dealing with relatives veteran dads can offer the rookies.
