AN APP FOR NEW DADS, MADE BY DADS

I'm expecting our first baby and this app has been really useful for tips, advice and other handy stuff I didn't know

Every new dad should have this app. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

The tips are so quick to read and so easy to implement, I absolutely love it

ABOUT

WHO WE ARE

Quick Tips For New Dads is a community of like minded dads and expectant fathers who are passionate about being the best possible dads for their kids.

We’ve created a website, an iPhone app and a free New Dad’s Survival Guide to help rookie dads avoid the painful learning curve all men go through.

Made for dads, by dads

Everything you see has been written for dads, by dads. No nonsense. No waffle. Just simple, practical advice, that really works.

We believe each baby is different, and each parent is different. Therefore, one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we’ve created a pool of tips and advice that any new dad can dip in and out of depending on their specific situation.

We cover the usual ‘dad skills’, such as changing nappies, bathing a new born and how to combat post-natal depression. But we also tackle the bizarre stuff that most pregnancy books don’t talk about.

For example, did you know babies are usually born with soft, pulsating heads? Or that baby boys can get boners? Or that baby girls often have a mini-period after birth?

Our strength comes from the real life experiences and tried-and-tested tips our community of dads share with each other. We’re not just writing about it.

We’re living it, every single day, down in the trenches, knee-deep in baby sick and dirty nappies.

So, if you’ve got a useful ‘dad tip’ that helped you, please submit your tip so we can share it with the rest of the dads (and expectant fathers) in our community.

You can also subscribe to our occasional emails for useful tips, bad dad jokes, thoughtful quotes and other handy news. No spam. No junk. Promise.

Finally, check out our Blog for our latest posts and articles. Some weird, some wonderful, and some just to make you smile.

I’m Dave, a thirty-something husband and rookie dad living just outside London (England).

I’m average height, average looking and pretty bald on top.

I become a dad to Mia in Jan 2012, and then again to William in Dec 2013.

I won’t lie. I was absolutely terrified when Mia was born. And I still get scared most days.

First off, I found labour a pretty horrifying experience, especially seeing my wife, Samantha, endure so much pain.

Then I realised the tiny bundle of life that popped out was completely dependent on me. Scary times.

I also wanted to take really good care of Samantha. But I couldn’t get to grips with all the wordy pregnancy books by her bed, which all seemed to be aimed at women anyway.

I just wanted some good, honest ‘dad advice’, but I didn’t know where to look. And I soon discovered I wasn’t alone.

About a week after birth, I went for a quick pint with some other dads I’d met through our local parenting group. It quickly became apparent that we all felt the same we all wanted to take good care of our partners and babies, but we didn’t know how. And that’s when we started sharing tips with each other.

You know the sort of thing. Tips on changing nappies/diapers, helping out with breastfeeding, soothing a crying baby, coping with sleep deprivation, bathing a new born baby and, most importantly, looking after the new mum.

The tips proved hugely useful and we started to feel like more involved dads, and more bonded with our sprogs.

We also started to earn some serious brownie points with our wives and girlfriends. Happy days.

That’s when I realised other new dads could also benefit from these tips, especially if they were easily accessible through an iPhone app, website, and community of like minded fathers.

After all, about 750,000 babies are born in the UK each year, 4 million in the US, and over 130 million worldwide.

That’s a lot of new babies. And a lot of new dads. So I decided to create Quick Tips For New Dads.

Since then, hundreds of dads have shared their tips and advice from all corners of the globe, thanks to the connective power of social media and the unifying power of becoming a new dad.

So, take a look around and please share your own tips, pointers and nuggets of dad wisdom.

Until then, happy dad-ing.
