Pocket Commando Dad

Pocket Commando Dad

Pocket Commando Dad

Ever wished that new babies came with a manual?... They Do Now! Commando Dad is an indispensable training manual for new recruits to fatherhood. This handy pocket sized version is perfect for the New Dad on those 'solo' missions.

Written by ex-Royal Engineer Commando and dad of three, Neil Sinclair, this straightforward guide can teach new dads – fast – all the practical skills they need to be an effective parent. The book's stripped down style is based on the Army Basic Training Manual and is designed to fit in a dad's pocket for use 'in the field'. Commando Dad is very much based on what you need to do, not what you feel. As Neil puts it: "At 0-silly-hundred-hours, with a screaming baby trooper in your arms, 700 pages of someone telling you about their emotions isn't the answer."

Chapters include:

  • New Recruits: Surviving the first 24 hours
  • Sleep and other Nocturnal Missions
  • Call the Medic: Basic first aid and unit maintenance
  • On Manoeuvres: Transporting the Troops
  • Nutrition: An Army marches on its Stomach
  • Morale: Commando Dad's Secret Weapon

  • The book is all about applying military precision to parenting – in terms of being organised, prepared, and planning ahead, all while being the best dad you can be. It also features military terminology throughout, for example 'flash to bang time' (the time it takes dads to react to a situation), 'squared away' (everything organised and in the right place), 'compassion fatigue' (when tiredness makes you feel you have no compassion left. Dig deep).
