Baby Bonding in Hawaii

The book is featured in the Ages & Stages section of the May issue of Island Family Magazine, which is on newsstands now.

The Baby Bonding Book for Dads

Many new dads have never even held
a baby, so they can feel apprehensive and
unsure about how to interact with their

That apprehension, though, shouldn’t
put men into the back seat of parenting,
as that would be taking a step back from
one of the most important experiences of
life. Men need to take the initiative and
create their own ways of bonding with
their children, right from the beginning.
Bonding with a baby or toddler is
about the small moments that you spend
together, looking at each other, talking,
taking baths and walks, and playing. It’s
not something that happens instantly;
instead, it’s a relationship that grows
over time.

The Baby Bonding Book for
Dads is about practical, everyday
things that fathers can do to enjoy
being with their children and forging
the bond between them.

Topics include newborn bonding, carrying,
skin-to-skin contact, diapering, going
places, napping, playing, exercising, and
reading to baby. The instructive yet lighthearted
text is paired with delightful photography,
making this book a handy
guide and a perfect gift for any new
father who’s feeling a little nervous about
the new responsibility in his life.

The Baby Bonding Book for Dads
($15.95, Willow Creek Press) is available
wherever books are sold.
