Awhh congrats! Your gonna be a daddy (= If you know if it's a boy or girl already,you could ask your wife if you could help get some toys,diapers and maybe some outfits. She might want to help you with some of these things,because ladies like to shop. You could also start to buy a little crib and find an area for the crib to go.And I agree w/ clicketyclack, financial preparation is a main thing also.

You know about baby-proofing a house...keeping dangerous things out of their reach?

Will the baby have a separate room later on? Is it ready? Some people prefer to keep the baby close by the marital bed in the early months for night feeding and to check that the baby is breathing. They can get tangled in their blacket etc. Learn about crib death. It is associated with cigarette smoking in the home so says my retired nurse friend. Don?t have painting etc. around the house when you have a new baby and keep the dust levels down. Do you have pets? Loud music and TV disturbs a baby. The mother should not be drinking alcohol during the development of the baby.

Financial preparation is one of the most important. Having a child is very expensive. Stable living conditions/environment is another. Being EMOTIONALLY ready and mature, being healthy, (both parents), drug free, and last but equally as important as all the rest, being in a secure relationship.

Be extremely understanding of the mothers emotions, don't hesitate to offer help when you think it may be needed

1st of all seeing your wife is pregnant make sure to be very understanding of your wifes different emotions as of one moment she could be mad then happy then sad you have to keep up with her in these few months also think about. If you know wether its a boy or girl you could go ahead and set up the babys room with pink toys and cute dresses, shoes, toys, or blue room for a boy with nice shirts and such. Congratulations btw
