Boot Camp for New Dads


We are collaborating with the Merced County Human Services Agency to bring this workshop for first-time fathers to Merced. Boot Camp for New Dads is a three-hour workshop taught by fathers. Utilizing a man-to-man approach, veteran dads and their babies orient dads who are expecting their first baby. The rookies are all eyes and ears as they watch the veterans feed, burp, change, and care for their babies while hearing their experiences and advice. A strong sense of solidarity quickly develops between these men and peaks when the veterans give their babies to the rookies for hands-on training.
