Dad tip #1: Don't let your wife read the freakin' Nest!

I couldn't think of a more fitting or more helpful piece of advice to kick this site off with than to warn husbands/fathers to somehow prevent your wives from reading TheNest.com. The Nest is the devil incarnate.

The Nest will put CRAZY ideas in your wife's head and will make her doubt or question every and any possible thing about your child. For example, if you were wondering, "Hmm, I wonder when our baby will start rolling over?", your wife will hop on to a Nest message board and determine not only that your child should've been rolling over weeks ago (regardless of how old he or she is), but also that everyone else's child has been sleeping soundly through the night since birth and is already somewhat well-versed in metaphysics and the finer details of constructing a Japanese haiku ... IN JAPANESE.

As a side note, The Nest has also accidentally accepted shady advertising in the past that has resulted in nasty virus-y things being installed on people's machines and forced people (read: ME) to clean spyware off of the computer. And yes, I realize that there's some sort of irony in having to link to a Nest message board for documentation on said issue, but I honestly couldn't find reference to this elsewhere right now.

So, do what you have to and keep your wife away from The Nest!
