Holiday Gift for New Dads
Fatherhood can be an overwhelming experience, but like most things in life, it gets easier to deal with when you add a little knowledge! And when your learning is enhanced with humour, suddenly life doesn’t seem quite so out of control.
At least, that’s the theory behind Baby Barbells: The Dad’s Guide to Fitness and Fathering by Joshua Levitt, ND. This unique board book is nice and durable and fully able to withstand manhandling by an energetic youngster, but it’s not for baby…it’s for Dad!
Baby Barbells contains a fun collection of exercises for all Dad’s major muscle groups, and every single once involves Dad’s new bundle of joy as an integral part of the fun! With witty info about what the muscles are used for and fun facts about the body, getting in shape has never been so fun or provided such a valuable bonding experience!
But the book doesn’t just have value as a Dad-and-baby exercise guide. It also contains special Downtime sections that feature tips and advice for parenthood to help new Dads learns about everything from balancing work and family to calming a fussy baby. For a new dad that has just realized his life has been changed forever, it’s an invaluable source of information.
My husband really enjoyed Baby Barbells; he especially liked the arm and leg exercises and the fun, easy-to-read layout of the book itself. It made finding the right exercise a breeze and was also great for the times when he just wanted to quickly read a page or two in a spare minute.
Baby Barbells: The Dad’s Guide to Fitness and Fathering would make a fabulous gift for any father, but it is especially appropriate for the new dad. The book can be purchased online at Amazon.com, Borders and other select retailers, so visit the website to find a retailer near you and pick up a copy for a needy father on your Christmas list today!
