I remember my buddy's first kid being born, I was with him outside the birthing center at 4AM trying to help him get his carseat installed... good idea to get that done early, its like step one on your way home: Secure the baby!

Wow, some good and realistic advice here. It gives me hope.

Just remember, you will make mistakes. Someday, somewhere, you will do or say something that, in the eyes of someone, will make you a "bad" parent. Not being perfect doesn't make you a bad parent, but it does tend to make others judgemental.

We all make mistakes, my mothers advice for me when we adopted a newborn?

"Your only real job as a parent is to make sure your child survives the day, this gets MUCH harder once they are mobile."

The rest is just details.

Wow, I'm inspired by how much good advice there is in this thread. It far exceeds the ratio usually present regarding brewing topics


Tell the nurses to take the baby to the nursery often so your wife can sleep a bit. There is nothing like coming home after all that excitement (and no sleep) and then not sleeping some more. The first week home makes you feel like your life has been rebooted.

Flipped upside down first, THEN rebooted.

As a father of 2 someone told me don't be afraid if u don't love ur kid right away. And I thought that was a horrible thought and thought my buddy was a pos father. But guess what when my daughter was first born I didn't love her I thought she was cool but not love. It took me about 6 weeks for it to hit me I remember the day I loved her I was holding her and she gave me this look like I need u for everything. And my heart sank and I knew at that point she loved me and I loved her. Congrats Chopps

Be prepared for the baby to act different when you get home. The first few days in the hospital they are tired from their journey and mostly just eat and sleep. After 3rd day so they can begin the apparent constant crying for no apparent reason.... Yes it's the same baby
