Book Talk: The Ultimate Guide For Gay Dads
The Library at Bradbury-Sullivan LGBT Community Center presents a book talk with Eric Rosswood, author of The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads on April 11 at 6 p.m.
The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads covers all the essential things that other parenting books do, but it removes the pieces that focus on mothers and replaces them with information relevant to gay dads. For example, you won't find information on how to hold a baby and get the perfect nipple latch during breast-feeding. Instead, the book compares donor breast milk and formula to help gay dads decide which is right for their baby. It also covers things like parental leave when it comes to adoption and surrogacy, birth certificate issues, how to find LGBT-friendly pediatricians, how to find LGBT-friendly schools, what to do on Mother's Day, conversations that gay dads have with their kids that straight parents don't typically have with theirs, and so much more. The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads is filled with tips, tricks, and hacks from pediatricians, school educators, lawyers, and tons of other gay parents. It also includes a foreword by Golden Globe nominated writer, director, and producer, Greg Berlanti, best known for his work as executive producer and co-creator of The CW’s Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. The Ultimate Guide for Gay Dads is jam packed with critical information that will help you build confidence and become the awesome gay dad you were meant to be!
