Bringing a new baby home is very exciting and rewarding but can be very stressful and even scary for first-time dads. When adopting a newborn, dads may have only a few days to prepare for bringing the baby home and many times its very last-minute. Being prepared may ease some of the stress; but if you were given no time to prepare, don’t worry: Most of these items can be found at any store with a baby department.
Many times dads are traveling to other states to pick up their baby/babies and you may need to bring a lot more items. You may be there for days or more than a week. Always make sure you have enough clothes because you may or may not have the ability to do laundry during that time. A relative or good friend with baby experience would be a great help for a few days (or longer); alternatively, if you can afford it, consider hiring an experienced infant care specialist such as a baby nanny or a baby nurse.
