Please tell me there is someone else out there who has a husband or partner who isn’t a ‘details’ person. Just this week, I listened as my husband told his parents back home in the States that our baby is due in October or November (it is actually due in September). Seriously!!! I don’t know if it was entertaining the idea of enduring two extra months when I already feel like a beached whale or having him so out of tune, but I was far from impressed.
Choosing to take the high road instead of engaging in our ongoing ‘battle of the details’, I helpfully downloaded an app for him to get with the program. It is called, Who’s Your Daddy and it is working. Just today he informed me (without prompting) that we have 104 days to go, the baby is the weight of an iPad and the size of a bayonet dagger…
That’s right, this is a pregnancy app with a difference. It is written for men, by men (with advice from midwives) and uses humour and language that you won’t need a medical dictionary to decipher. It is designed to make the lives of expectant dads easier by giving them a heads up on what to do and not to do during pregnancy with fully-personalised content.
There are simple daily tips like this one I love, “When was the last time you offered a back rub?”, a timeline of milestones and tasks that you can add to your calendar and tools like a contraction counter, to-do checklist and baby names collector to guide fathers-to-be through the daunting nine months of pregnancy.
Download the Who’s Your Daddy app from the App Store today for $3.79 and rest assured that you will both benefit from the investment.
