I’m Jeff. I work in new product development and marketing at Summer Infant. Working on baby products, I’ve learned more than I ever expected to know about swaddling and baby tubs! The good news is that it’s helped me to feel more confident as a parent. There’s so much build up to the big day (labor and delivery) – and then suddenly you’re a parent – with no instruction manual.
The first time around worked out pretty nicely so here we go with baby number two. I have a lovely almost three-year old daughter, who I’ll refer to here as “D” and a baby boy on the way. My blog posts will hopefully share some of what dad might be thinking, as well as practical tips for things that have helped us along the way.
What three words come to mind when you think of your family?
Laughter, wrangling, growing.
Read any good books lately?
Loved the Hunger Games and enjoyed Bringing Up Bebe. Less time to read now but still . . .
What piece of sound advice would you give to moms and dads out there?
Try new things and go with what works. My wife and I have both learned a ton from each other – it’s been a cool aspect of parenting that I never had thought of before.
What’s your favorite kind of ice cream?
Ben and Jerry’s Health Bar Crunch, but I’ll eat almost any kind of ice cream.
