Let’s face it, as a society we’re still new to this whole ‘stay at home dad’ thing. Most children’s companies still direct their PR campaigns to women, but things are changing. Fortunately we have some options as more companies run by dads – for dads are making products, starting with dad’s diaper bag. When looking […]
As I’ve mentioned – the Wee Baby T was born a full month early. We dashed out of our home and off to the hospital, as prepared as possible. Fortunately I had packed a diaper bag well in advance. What can I say? I was in the Boy Scouts when I was growing up. What I […]
From day one I have held or worn the Wee Baby T as often as possible. At first it was all about bonding, but as time went by baby wearing became equally utilitarian as a hands free way to keep him close. The Baby K’Tan was great first keeping T close, and the Bridge the Bump extender let’s […]

It’s a shame really, with freedom of speech finding the perfect home in online forums (a good thing, I’m not a proponent of censorship). While I think your primary source of information about anything medical should […]

Furthermore I am not a psychologist and I can not explain the emotional trauma delivered to children who aren’t breastfed. I am, however, a dad who cares deeply for the well being of […]

One of our very close friends recently let us know that he and his girlfriend were expecting their first baby.
