Father's Day 2019: Andy Cohen's first-time dad essentials

Leave it to Andy Cohen to give us the inside scoop on parenting essentials. 

Just in time for Father's Day, the "Bravo" host is sharing his must-have items that have helped him most as a single parent especially when it comes time to spending more time with his baby, Benjamin. 

“As a first-time dad, I asked everyone for advice, and the 'Housewives' in particular helped me prepare for this big life change,” says Andy. “I’m about to celebrate my first Father’s Day and while I’m still learning every day, my confidence is growing. I’m so excited to partner with Amazon and share all the products that have helped me transition into life as a Dad – and the best part is they arrive in two-days or less right to my doorstep!”

We have about 5 of them and our daughter loves each and every one- she loves to rub them on her face too to put herself to sleep..."
"It was a huge improvement after just one feeding! The feeding itself was longer and more controlled, less milk was lost." - Amazon customer
"This is a great diaper caddy. I’ve owned several over the years but this is my favorite. It’s just the right size."- Amazon customer
"This on-the-go baby dome was a lifesaver on our recent beach trip!" - Amazon customer
"These are one of the must-have items I wish I knew about when creating our registry." - Amazon customer
"I'm able to rock my twin boys to sleep at the same time. It's super comfortable." - Amazon customer
"We have a newborn and absolutely love this tub for her. The sling supports her perfectly."- Amazon Customer

Back in December, Cohen shared a message on "Watch What Happens Live," where he announced that he was going to be a father.

"Tonight, I want you to be the first to know that after many years of careful deliberation, a fair amount of prayers, and the benefit of science, if all goes according to plan, in about six weeks' time I am going to become a father," Cohen emotionally revealed. "Thanks to a wonderful surrogate who is carrying my future. Family means everything to me and having one of my own that I have wanted in my heart my entire life. And though it's taken most me longer than most to get there, I can't wait for what I envision to be the most rewarding chapter yet."
