I have just heard some good news. I am a soon to be father. I am bursting with joy. Of course there is concern but it is minuscule to my happiness. I was wondering how other fathers and mothers felt for the first time they got news of there first born. advice would be nice too. I don't think I have ever been so happy.

Hey, rock on! All I ask, is that whatever you do, when the baby is born, DON'T put those stupid little mittens on yer kids hands. How the hell are they supposed to explore their world if one of their major means of interaction is covered in some fuzzy mitt?

Don't babys wear them in order to prevent them from scraching them selves?

I was living around a lot of hispanics growing up, and there were several superstitions that the culture around there seemed to have. One of these was that if you cut the baby's nails before they were a certain age/months (I can't remember before what age it was), that they would go blind. So that was the reason some of them put the mittens on the babies down there. However, if you're gonna cut the babies nails so they aren't sharp, then you shouldn't need to put the stupid little mittens on them.

btw Congratulations as well

Hmmm...I wasn't aware of the superstition behind it. My mom is an L&D nurse in San Diego, so I was also heavily exposed to facets of hispanic culture. When I was shadowing her at work one night, I asked a new mother why she was putting the things on her kids hands. Her reasoning was an issue of social class. She told me that only lower class people don't use them. Same thing goes for breast feeding. If you have the money, then you buy the formula. That actual goes across the board culture-wise. Never mind all the little prenatal classes these women attend that go on about the health benefits for both mom and baby, breast feeding is just dirty, and they won't do it if they don't have to.

I live in san diego so I get exposed to the hispanic side alot too but I didn't even know of eather belifs. The bigest superstion in my family is that if you rub the mother belly the kid will come out bald.

C'mon everyone: start rubbing pregnant women bellies. Hey - it'll save on shampoo and conditioning money in the long run.

Congrats, Dense.

A piece of advice, since you're asking--start saving up now. Diapers and whatnot are going to cost an arm and a leg, not to mention future education. I don't have any kids of my own, but I have 3 nieces and 2 nephews (nieces were unplanned, nephews were not), so I've got a bit of experience with the little buggers.

Man it's got to be hard on a kid growing up hearing the Aunt say "you were an accident."

Anya: My baby does not need to be bald. Kim has hair gorgeous red hair, and mine is a dark brown with light brown or red highlights(depending on how much the sun can be advoided). My kid will be able to seduce anyone he/she trys to.

LadyC, not to mention the prices on baby furniture and clothes.

I don't think any Kid is an accident. Just a pleasent little suprise that makes you think, "Oh sh*t, how to deal with this one!?!"

Oh! Get a nice big set of headphones for mom to put on her tummy later on. It's never to early to show a kid what good music sounds like.
And when the wee one is actually born, read to him/her. It does so much for kids I can't even begin to list.
Babies are fun!

Just to clarify: "unplanned" does not equal "accident." I love my nieces and nephews, and, speaking as someone who was referred to as a "mistake," I wouldn't ever say anything about anyone being an "accident" or "the load your mother should have swallowed."

Anyway, they're seriously expensive, but I know that neither of my sisters regret having any of their kids.

Congratulations, Dense!

A little advice: I've heard that music played to an unborn child will make him/her smarter, but that may be just another superstition. put then, on the other hand, the more a brain is stimulated, the better it becomes.

Anya, It is a big joke in my familly too. The typical reply to it is along the lines of :
"My baby does not need to be bald. Kim has hair gorgeous red hair, and mine is a dark brown with light brown or red highlights(depending on how much the sun can be advoided). My kid will be able to seduce anyone he/she trys to."
It alows the parant to brag.

LadyC: I appoligize I used the wrong word. I hope I did not offend. I adgree with you. It pisses me off when I hear, even in a joking context, some one refur to thier child as an accident.

Kim is already planing on playing to the little on.

One thing about diapers: Luvs are the best ones. Pampers and Huggies are too expensive, and besides, no matter what the commercials say, they leak. A lot. Any of the bargain style, off-brand diapers leak. A lot. I know this from trial and error through 4 babies, and Luvs was always the best choice. I always regretted getting different diapers.

Breast feeding is best, and really should be done for at least the first few months. There are chemicals in the first few feedings that keep the baby from getting sick. Like natural immunizations. If it gets hard to breast feed, and you have to use formula... there are a lot of them on the market, and your baby might need a specific kind. I used Carnation. Less spitting up with that one than with Similac. You're not going to know what kind your baby will need until its here, so don't worry about actually stocking up on it. Just save a lot of $$ because this stuff is around $10 a can, and a healthy baby will go through roughly 4 cans a week. If you have a dishwasher, the heat from it will sterilize bottles and nipples.


Get a swing. Kim will think it's the best baby accessory she has. Most babies are sleeping within 5 minutes of being wound up.

Not sure about playing music, but I do know that the more stressed a mother is, the more stressed baby is when it comes out. The best thing you can do for Kim and the baby is keep her calm and happy.

Dense: You didn't offend, hon; in fact, one of my biggest dreams was to be a mother one day...but it looks like that isn't going to happen...*soft smile* At worst, I'm just jealous.

Another piece of advice: Make sure Kim gets plenty of water, good food, and visits her doctor on a regular basis. The WIC program might be something to look into (I don't know your financial situation, but my sister was able to get into it with my mom's lower middle-class income 8 years ago), especially for fruit juices and dairy products.

Also, you might want to get a copy of "What to Expect When You're Expecting" (cliche, but it's handy) and visit places like webmd.com (they have a customizable pregnancy calendar that gives you neat little details about how the baby is progressing based on date of conception/due date/first day of last period/etc).
