The first 12 months are awesome, but after they learn to walk things begin to suck much more. Some thoughts:

- Don't drop him;
- Leaving the hospital with him will be scary as fuck, but it will all be fine. You 2 can and will rely on each other and will get through it fine;
- Hope he's a solid sleeper, that helps;
- Don't stress if your wife can't get breastfeeding to work, despite what the midwife may say, bottle feeding is fine (and is kinda cool because you as the father can get fully involved);
- Triple check the securings of the baby seat in the car. You will panic about it on the drive home, so it is good to be able to reassure yourself that you triple-checked it all already;
- You won't get used to the smells. Baby shit is the fucking worst smelling thing ever (but surprisingly babies themselves generally smell good);
- Be supportive of the wife, rub her back, don't talk too much but be encouraging;
- Prepare to be amazed at your wife's strength and at everything about your son.
- Try and stay at the hospital as long as possible after the birth.

That's all I have for now. Congrats and good luck _tree.

To piggyback on one of Higgs’s points:

The smell of the first dump the baby takes will be the worst thing you will ever smell in your life. There are no words that can describe it or how bad that smell actually is. But you’ll wipe that butt and be happy to do so.
