Securing The Dad-Baby Attachment Guide

One of the most common concerns for new dads is how to form a bond with their baby. This new Coaching Guide prepared by Dadditude in collaboration with 'dad scientist' Dr Anna Machin will take you on a journey through the biology and psychology of attachment:
• Explaining the unique aspects of the dad’s bond
• Offering advice and tips on the best activities to use to create that bond both before and after birth
• Explaining why the relationship a dad builds with his baby is critical to their happy and healthy development.

Building a bond with your baby is one of the most joyous, fun and rewarding aspects of being a parent. Get it right at the start and you and your baby will be set up for life.

Don't worry, the content is written for parents, not PhD students. Here are some of the fun words that we'll serve you: secure attachment, neurobiology, bio-behavioral synchrony, neuro-chemicals, bonding delay, genetic relatedness, and a fair sprinkle of Twinkle Twinkle, Little Stars and rough & tumble play.

Who is it for?
• Soon-to-become dads or New dads who want to discover the fascinating nature of dad instinct and the impact of parenting on their brain and body and that of their baby.
• Older dads who need a primer or a refresh on why rough and tumble play is so much fun and so important to their kids.
• Mums and dads who want to help their partner on their parenting journey.

Who wrote this?
It was written in collaboration with Anna Machin, a parenting researcher who spent a decade at Oxford University researching dads, and authored: The Life Of Dad, The Making of the Modern Father. She's also an Evolutionary Anthropologist with a 20 year career and a mother of 2.
