Class gives advice to fathers-to-be

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- A class sponsored by Southeast Alabama Medical Center and Wiregrass Hope allowed students to ask about what to expect when they become fathers and to see how a father interacts with his child.
At the boot camp, expectant dads got advice on babies' eating and sleeping habits, dealing with the frustration sleep-deprived parents feel and maintaining a good relationship with their children's mother, including being aware of the post-partum depression and other problems women may experience after pregnancy.
The dads also got to watch Phelan Stanton interact with his child, handling practical matters such as feeding, changing and entertaining the child. Stanton was the "veteran dad" talking to the students.
