Introducing Daddy’s Tool Bag
Hendricks goes over the essential “tools” needed for a dad’s diaper bag
Being a father for the first time can be just as overwhelming as it is for new moms. While he is faced with a great deal of responsibility of supporting his partner, it can be difficult to figure out his role and understand how all the impending changes will affect him.
To give fathers the confidence to take care of a new baby and help them support the mom, First 5 San Diego is delighted to share the “Daddy’s Toolbag DVD: Essential Training for New Daddy.” The “home improvement” style DVD features a 45-minute video that covers the important basics for taking care of a new baby from a father’s perspective. It delivers meaningful instruction that helps to eliminate the intimidation that most men have when taking care of babies. The Daddy’s Tool Bag DVD was developed by a dad, just for dads!
A copy of the DVD can be found in First 5 San Diego’s Kit for New Parents. To request a Kit, call 1-888-5 FIRST 5 (1-888-534-7785).
A big thank you to Ted Hendricks, creator of the Daddy’s Toolbag DVD, for joining us at the First 5 San Diego Parent Summit held in October 2014. Hendricks gave a live presentation to new and expectant dads, covering the important basics of caring for a new baby from a father’s perspective.
