Father enrolled in  Casa de Los Ninos
Program in Arizona reading my book to his child.
From Sarah Kerr, Nurse Family Partnership Program Supervisor at Casa de Los Ninos in Arizona:

"Good Morning Elvin, Thanks so much we received the books. I read the book to our nurses at the staff meeting and discussed providing our dad’s with one and discussing the many benefits of reading to baby in utero and after birth. Our nurses LOVE the poem and the beauty of the movement you are generating. We will work to get some pics of the dad’s in action. Also, can we purchase books from you as needed in the future? Many thanks."

1. Most men will not admit it, but we get jealous that mom gets to bond with the baby as it is growing inside her. I was told by many parents, it might take a while for your child to make a connection with Dad. Mom is crucial to the babies survival and just the fact that they provide the food gives an instant bond. This terrified me, as I...MORE  
 
Many men discover their partner is pregnant and work towards fatherhood in small increments, e.g., keeping their partner happy, helping with the nursery and going to a class on parenting. They believe that fatherhood does not actually begin until they physically see a child. - See more at: http://www.dadblunders.com/2013/02/06/can-fatherhood-begin-with-a-pregnancy/#sthash.6KBHTlKq.dpuf

3. When Gabriel was still in utero, Chelsea (my girlfriend) told me to talk to him. I wanted to, but it felt awkward. Obviously Chelsea had to be there in order for me to do so, and I just felt weird. But I did want to. I knew how important it was. So I started. But Chels talked to him all day every day, on top of reading and playing music as well...MORE

4. I’ve read to Freddy since he was in the womb. Hoping he would hear my voice from the uterus, I read him stories to develop an early connection with him. I now read a book or poem to Freddy every morning. I usually cover the favourites – Mem Fox or A.A. Milne – but the other day I picked up a little wooden book that only had pictures. I couldn’t resist telling him my version of one of the great books ... here is a written and, admittedly, more coherent version:...MORE


5. It's utterly extraordinary that a 20 week old bump can respond to your voice. I've noticed Rex move and fidget when he hears my voice so I thought I'd test it. I chose a book from the nursery and began to read to him with my hand on ready to feel. And hey presto...MORE
