“There are so few resources for dads out there in general,” Somerfeld told Hsu.

He said he started the group in Nov. 2008 as he was about to become a stay-at-home father and wanted to have a network of fellow dads to socialize with.

NYC Dads logged its 800th member just this weekend.

The group offers new dad boot camps for first-time fathers in addition to other tips for parents.

Somerfeld said the group offers a “dadternity” for fathers to have a place to share experiences or just to vent about the stresses of being a parent.
