You made it through the delivery, and now you have your baby. This lesson is the guy's guide to how to support Mom and Baby after the delivery. Learn what ways you can make Mom more comfortable and help baby thrive. Laugh along with a pair of veteran dads that have cut the cord and lived to tell the tale. "Push" play and be ready to "breath" easier.

In this lesson, DadLabs will talk about postpartum depression, and the signs to watch for, communicating with your wife after the birth, speaking to a lactation consultant to aide in breastfeeding, the differences between breast milk and formula, hospital paperwork that will need to be done, and an explanation of meconium and keeping track of baby's poop.

Even though expecting a baby has nothing to do with football playoffs, grilling excellent steaks, margin calls, fuel injection, or cold brewskis, this series of DadLabs lessons will teach you what you need to know to get you safely and happily to that big 0th birthday:
