About Boot Camp for New Dads
New babies don’t come with owners’ manuals. Crying babies, diaper changing, and understanding mom’s emotions are new experiences for first-time fathers. Spend a morning with other first-time dads who provide practical tips and perspectives by bringing their own babies — and will leave you confident in your own ability to be a great dad. Topics include:
- Caring for babies, particularly when they are crying
- Caring for moms, particularly when they are crying
- How to change a diaper
- Working a regular week on no sleep
- Financing a family
- How to handle a constant barrage of conflicting advice
We offer scholarships if you would like to attend Boot Camp but are not able to contribute the $25 suggested donation. Please contact our office at 804-288-3431 and we’ll register you over the phone!
