I stumbled across Daddy Scrubs from another blog about a month or two before Kendall was born, and thought they were so cute! I thought it was such a creative and clever idea to have something like this for expectant fathers to wear during his stay in the hospital and during the birth of his child. I have heard of some companies offering special "push gowns" or special labor and birthing gowns for birthing moms to wear, but never anything too special for the dads involved, until I found Daddy Scrubs!
From their website:
"DaddyScrubs® is the offspring of Robert Nickell, who fathered his first four children more than 20 years ago. DaddyScrubs® was conceived when Robert, who remarried in 2007, discovered he was about to be a father all over again in the fall of 2009! Not wanting to endure the pains of wearing uncomfortable street clothes while comforting his laboring wife, Robert hatched the idea of creating doctor-like scrubs for himself. It seemed a natural thing for him to do — since Robert is a pharmacist by profession. To eliminate the confusion between “who’s the doctor” and “who’s the daddy,” Robert fashioned the concept of “I’m The Daddy®” medical scrubs. DaddyScrubs is dedicated to providing dads in every stage of fatherhood a way to proudly proclaim, "I'm the Daddy!" DaddyScrubs is committed to excellence and strives to deliver quality products at great prices while ensuring the highest level of customer service and satisfaction."
For this review, Frank chose the simple Navy design of his daddy scrubs:
I was a little nervous we wouldn't be able to get Frank's scrubs, because he needed a different size pants than he did for his shirt, but the customer service from Kennady at Daddy Scrubs was amazing! She said the difference in sizes wouldn't be an issue at all, and even sent Frank's scrubs out with express shipping because at the time, Kendall could have made her appearance literally any second, and of course we wanted to be able to get them in time for Frank to wear when I was in labor and giving birth.
I think he was almost more excited than I was when he came home from work one afternoon and saw that his scrubs had arrived! He tried them on immediately!
He kept raving about how comfortable the scrubs were and how he had found his new pajama pants! :) I was happy that he was so happy with the scrubs! After he tried them on, we put them in our hospital bag to wait for the BIG DAY!
They sat in our bag the day we went to the hospital, because labor was slow to really kick in and start. That evening, when the REAL labor kicked in and began, I was still skeptical that it was really happening...but I knew it must be the real deal when I saw Frank get up from his bed, get his scrubs out of the hospital bag, and go into the bathroom to put them on. Things were SO crazy when I was in labor and went super fast, that it was hard to get too many photos until afterwards, but our doula snapped a few of us with Kendall right after she was born, and you can see Frank is wearing the scrubs. :)
Frank got SO many compliments from the hospital staff on his scrubs! All of the doctors and nurses kept commenting on what a great idea they were, asking where we got them from, and just telling us how much they liked them. They were definitely a BIG HIT!
Daddy Scrubs don't only offer hospital-type scrubs though. They also offer regular t shirts that have the trademark "I'm The Daddy!" slogan on the back, hoodies, hats, and other new dad gifts, so scrubs aren't the only option.
We were so very happy with our experience with Daddy Scrubs and would highly, highly recommend them to everyone we know! The customer service was wonderful and you can tell that the company strives to fully satisfy their customers, both new and returning ones. The product itself is cute, stylish, creative, and can be worn over and over, not just on that special delivery day.
Daddy Scrubs are a must have for every daddy in your life!
