What to buy a new Dad…

What happens when your BFF enters Fatherhood and what do you need to buy them?

I was pleasantly taken aback, when Richie in my office asked me what to buy his best friend for the birth of their baby. Judging all men by my husband, I assumed a four-pack and cigar were de rigour!

There were three things that sprang to mind.

  1. A night nanny

YES, you can give the gift of sleep! A night nanny can help out with those difficult first few days and weeks, when you are sleep deprived and unsure what to do with a new baby. Costs start from £110 a night, nightnannies.com

2. Clarins Men, Anti Fatigue Eye Serum

A smooth and simple eye serum, to perk up those dark circles, de puff the bags and remove the signs of being a Dad around your eyes. This will be one welcome present £29.50 from clarins.com


3. BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One – One of those essential items that both my husband and I both used in the first year of our little one’s life. They have just launched a new #dadstory Spring Collection with limited editions in three mesh options: Powder Pink, Cocoa, Anthracite, and three cotton options: Classic Denim, Pale Blue-Leaf Print and Midnight Blue-Leaf Print. What’s more they are donating baby carriers to The Fatherhood Institute as part of the new campaign too.

You can get involved by sharing your own dad story on Insta, just use the hashtag #dadstory and #babybjorn and follow @babybjorn – oh and did I mention there’s a master card loaded with cash for the winner! BabyBjorn Carrier One –  £134.99 from  babybjorn.co.uk
