Commando DadFather’s Day is right around the corner, can you believe it?

This year is going to be a special Father’s Day celebration for Charles because it’s his first one as a Dad! He did a wonderful job organizing a special Mother’s Day for me & I can’t wait to celebrate his special day with him – neither can Brooks!

In honor of Charles, new dads & dads-to-be everywhere, I thought it would be fun to share with you this new book I was able to check out – Commando Dad: A Basic Training Manual for the First Three Years of Fatherhood.

Commando Brooks

This book is a fantastic parenting book for moms & dads! It’s a easy to use reference that is jam packed filled with great advice for your new “troopers” from birth to age three – It has a hilariously funny take on all things “Dad”. I love the army theme surrounding the book – it’s present in every chapter in unique new ways and it creates a basic task manual for new parents on the job. It’s also includes a handy glossary  in the back of the book, because the author creates some really fun commando baby words! example -> BT {Baby Trooper}

It deals with anything and everything baby and gives great advice to dads {that is also good for first time parents in general!} This books does a great job of breaking down everything to what you really need to know – it also gives great tips and tricks, a few of which we have already tried in our house {specifically from the chapters “Sleeping and other Nocturnal Missions” and “Nutrition: An Army Marches on It’s Stomach” -> don’t you just love the chapter names?}

Commando Dad1

This book is a funny and {very} informative manual written by a real Commando in the British Armed Forces. I enjoy the fact that the author, Neil Sinclair, was in the army and is now a stay at home dad {which he says is his most demanding job by far!}  I also love the message that Sinclair wants to share with the world  -> ” No one can support a new dad like another dad.” -> Sort of loving the dad love in that statement!

Fun Fact: Even Prince William read this book before Baby George came along!

Commando Tips

This is a great new dad manual, a perfect gift for Father’s Day {which happens to be in 12 days!} and a fun read for anyone who wants to laugh {a lot!}

A little more about the book:

New dads will learn how to prepare the home for the latest addition to the corps; establish a sleep routine; deal with hostile uprisings; feed, burp, and bathe a baby trooper; and much, much more. Written by an ex-commando and father of three, the book looks and reads like a basic training military manual and is full of no-nonsense advice delivered in a relatable and warm—but not sappy—tone.

    I am hoping to share this with my husband so he can pick up a few tips before our baby arrives!

    I haven’t gotten to experience life with a new dad yet but I would say the best tip I can think of is to be as hands on as possible from the start so that you can learn as much about the baby as possible and feel comfortable taking care of he/she on your own. 🙂 I hope to be able to share this with my husband for his first Father’s Day(fingers crossed that our little girl doesn’t decide to be late so she can be here with him).

    no tips from me (our first baby is due in 4 short weeks) – but I know this book would be perfect for my husband!

    Remember to breathe; being a new dad WILL be stressful!

    My husband and I have an 8 week old, and my survival tip for him has been to continue to tell me I am doing a great job and to not take it personally when I am extra moody (sleep-deprived). I am nursing too and it’s very demanding at times but my husband has been so encouraging which definitely helps!

    My best survival tip is to relax and enjoy. Babies can sense when you’re tense and they grow up so fast. Enjoy every minute!
