parenting classes for fathers?

Are there any parenting classes for new fathers? Like to teach them how to handle the baby? Change diapers? Give the baby a bath? Or just basically anything with a baby? I know how to do all of it but, im not going to be home all day to do it considering i have to work.

  • I saw a list of them at my hospital when I had my son 3 months ago. I was considering them for my husband because we are first time parents and he had no experience, but we never got the time to do it.

  • When I was at the hospital after my first they had a checklist of things the nurse had to go over with the new parents and teach them (ie how to change a diaper, bathe a baby, etc) before we could check out and go home.

  • Yes there are parenting/new parents/daddy-to-be classes.
    You can ask your doctor/midwife, check at a hospital, check with birth class teachers, doulas, or Google.

    Good luck!
