Just for Dads

Babies and Pets

Taking a new baby home means an adjustment for every member of the family – mom, dad and sometimes even the family pet. Join us to learn how to care for and help your pet adjust to life with a new baby. For those who don't already have one, we offer tips on what to look for when selecting a family pet.

Car Seat Safety

Car seats save lives and prevent injuries, but only when they are used correctly and consistently. Learn how to protect your precious cargo beginning with the first ride home from the hospital.
