As we welcome our newest little one in just a few weeks (maybe days, yikes), I’ve been thinking about all the things that made our lives better after we had our son. Breast pump, bottles, specific baby gear…but what about Dad? A lot of gift lists for new parents leave off Dad.

Becoming a big brother or big sister is a pretty big task for a little one. We’re welcoming a daughter soon and have been starting to prepare our son for his new role as big brother.
