Congratulations, you are a dad! You just had your baby and are filled with love, fear, and every other emotion possible.  While all of the excitement (and lack of sleep) is going on, you’ll want to remember to think before you speak.  Of course you wouldn’t intentionally say anything to bother or hurt your wife.  However just because you didn’t intend evil, doesn’t mean it’s ok to say.  Here at Dudes To Dads we wanted to provided a little advice on what you shouldn’t say to a new mom.  If you need further explanation of these, listen to the Dudes To Dads Podcast Episode 21 which covers these.  We also have created the list of 25 Things You Should Never Say To Your Kids
