Philadelphia, PA September 5, 2012– Author Jed Gibson today announced the publication of his new book Daddy Gear (Everything I Wish I'd Known When I Became a Dad), a chronicle of information, including inspiring stories and practical examples for men when they are planning for their first child. Available in paperback from Amazon and in all eBook formats, Daddy Gear is organized into three basic topics: Getting ready for your baby, Stuff (things to buy), and Lessons learned once your baby comes home.
“When my wife and I were expecting our second child, my brother called and asked me for a list of the “stuff” he'd need when he and his wife had their first baby,” states Mr. Gibson. “As I started writing, I began to break the "stuff" into categories based on usage. But what is a list without the perspective added by experience? So this simple list grew to something more.”
“As I compiled this information for my brother, I realized that there were more than just “things” I needed to talk about. My wife and I had experiences that my brother was sure to have as well. I began to add information about specific situations, in addition to gear, and my list began to grow into a book. Being sensitive to the sequence of events to come, the section about doctors, the hospital, and birth appears earlier in the book.”
“But, even after all that planning, your journey really begins with the birth of your child. How do you find a pediatrician?

He is currently employed as a dad and finds time for architecture in between birthday parties, play dates and soccer games. In what spare time he has left, he serves on the board of a non-profit summer camp for children ages 8 to 13. In addition to learning about life with children, he has grown accustomed to the bedlam of parenthood with his extended family of four in-laws and seven nieces and nephews who often refer to him as Uncle Daddy.
