So you’re going to be a father. Congrats! You’re about to enter the most awesome and most terrifying stage of your life! Starting today, your life is going to get complicated; there’s so much to think about, so many things to buy, and so many things you’re going to need to baby-proof.
But enough of that baby talk. You need some gear – that is, non-baby gear – to make fatherhood easier. And while we can tell you about the coolest crib sheets, best baby monitors, or the bottles that won’t give your kid gas, we’d rather have a man-to-man about all the things you haven’t yet considered
Want to know about all the gear us 8BitDads use to transform themselves into superheroes? Then read on.
I was completely caught off-guard when one night without warning, my wife, who was several months pregnant at the time, brought someone else into our bed. At first I was excited, I mean guys are always talking about having 2 partners at the same time as if it is the holy grail, so I thought we should go for it.
Plus, she seemed like she really wanted it, even more than I did, and said that it would make her sleep better afterwards. However this partner would turn out to be much more than I bargained for, and ultimately more than I could handle.
There’s kind of no emoticon for what you look like when you first see the Zaky Infant Pillow by Zakeez. I mean, what we’re talking about, just to be crystal clear, is a pair of plush hands that you wrap around your baby. And oh no, they’re not your hands. They’re not even your relatives’ hands. It’s like you’re putting your most prized possession directly into the warm paws of the pedobear. Or, as they put it, “it is arguably the most loving and useful gift for infants”.
Well, okay, I think I’ll play whatever the opposite of devil’s advocate is, and argue for the Zaky.
