From the Publisher
Learn how you can become a #1 Dad at every stage:
Month 1: Average Size — 7 Pounds
How was the drive home from the hospital? Did you have your hands at 10 and 2 for the first time ever, white-knuckling the wheel? Not since my days in college, when I was assigned the job of keg deliveryman during a snowstorm, have I felt such overwhelming pressure to safely deliver a package.
Month 4: Average Size — 15 Pounds
You’ve been indoctrinated; you’re a survivor. The first 3 months as a new father are very tough. It definitely wasn’t easy for me to make the transition—even as the older brother of three boys, I had never had anyone reliant upon me.
Month 9: Average Size — 18 Pounds
Last month, I offered up a reference to the Baby Shark song that serves as ground zero for my migraines. That song may feel relevant these days with those new teeth popping through, especially for Mom. You’d think those little Chiclets were laser-cut blades for cutting open bank vaults. I’ve watched my wife scream in agony after our little one almost took off her entire left nipple, slicing it to bleed. Be a team player—get some rubber chew toys, quick.
“We’re Parents! is full of practical advice (high fives for our mutual dislike of baby shoes, Adrian), actionable steps for being an incredible, supportive partner, and a detailed path to guiding your baby through their healthy, happy first year.”―Jill Krause, creator of Baby Rabies and author of 50 Things to Do Before You Deliver
“Parenting. About to join the club? Imagine having a beer with your best buddy while he shares all of his parenting and relationship secrets, putting your mind at ease. With his practical tips and actionable advice Adrian does just that for new dads! Loaded full of great advice and first-hand experience, We're Parents! will have you ready to tackle parenthood and enjoy your role as a new dad and supportive partner.”―Meghan Hertzfeldt and Jennifer Bonicelli, authors of You Can Two! The Essential Twins Preparation Guide and founders of the blog Two Came True
“We’re Parents! is a funny, yet honest, book about parenting. I thoroughly enjoyed reading a father’s perspective that portrays parenting as a team effort, all while giving fantastic advice to other dads on how to be there for their partner in these challenging times!”―Brandi Brucks, potty training consultant and author of Potty Training in 3 Days

Unlike other baby books, it’s not over-complicated or overly prescriptive. It’s simple and friendly and broken up into nice bite-sized chunks. It doesn’t play into patronising stereotypes.
