Having a baby is an amazing experience! I remember my last pregnancy. I was packed months in advance for the birth of my daughter ( I swore she was coming early, even though my last child was 10 days late!)! When I neared my due date, I had an upsetting midwife appointment. The midwife couldn’t find the babies head! Usually at 9 months, the babies head is engaged in the mother’s pelvis, but when my midwife conducted her exam, the head wasn’t where it was suppose to be. She sent me for an emergency ultrasound to confirm the baby’s location. Whether it was the fear for my baby’s life or mother nature’s timing, but as I had my emergency ultrasound (and found out my daughter was Frank Breech), I started to go into labour. I was thrilled that I had thrown my hospital bag in the back of my car and had everything I needed for my hospital stay.
UNFORTUNATELY….my husband wasn’t as lucky!
During my pregnancy, I read every baby book I could get my hands on. When they discussed packing advice, there was list after list recommending what Mom and baby were going to need for labour and during the first few days of the baby’s life. Unfortunately, DAD is forgotten in this packing list. When I packed, I had things organized for me and the baby. My first two labours came on slow and there was tons of time for us to prepare. Both times they began in the morning, so my husband was able to wear comfortable clothes in preparation for my long labours. With my last labour, I picked my husband from work prior to our ‘ultrasound’. With his work clothes on we were rushed to the hospital for an emergency c-section. My poor husband went into the operating room with his dress shoes and work clothes on and spent the first night of my daughter’s life in the hospital in his work clothes. Needless to say it wasn’t the most comfortable experience!
Daddy Scrubs has come up with an amazing product to prevent this from happening! In 2009, the founder, Robert Nickell, created his line of “I’m the Daddy” clothing when he noticed a void in the marketplace for Expectant father gifts! Daddy Scrubs are ‘one-of-a-kind ‘Delivery Room duds for Dads’ will make any new dad feel special and comfortable during one of life’s most exciting times.’ Daddy Scrubs offers an exclusive line that all fathers (new and old) will enjoy! The line consists of t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and more that celebrate fatherhood and make every dad feel like they are number one.
My husband was thrilled to receive these scrubs (his only complaint was that we didn’t know about them for the birth of our 3 children). I ordered him the Classic Simple Navy. He put them on and I was amazed how well the fit! Its like they were made just for him! The drawstring waist band allowed him to adjust them to his ultimate comfort and the soft, breathable fabric (65/35 Poly Cotton) made the wearing experience enjoyable. My kid’s got all excited when they saw daddy were his scrubs! They loved the big “I’m the Daddy” across the back! My husband wears them around the house with pride!
I would highly recommend this product for any daddy-to-be gift, new-dad gift or “the perfect Dad” gift to show them how special they are!
