Quick Fatherhood Tips
Speak to those who know
Ask hospital staff, pediatricians and anyone who has had a baby before how to change a diaper, bath your baby and burp your baby. The more questions you ask, the more you will know how to do and the more you will be able to bond with your baby.
Trust your instincts. Your natural instincts will tell you what to do and how to do it. You will probably even surprise yourself, at easily you will adapt to your new baby.
Patience and Positiveness
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Be patient, but positive, especially with your wife. After all, she’s just carried your baby around for nine months, and has just been through an experience of pain and emotions that words will never be able to fully describe.
Don’t be bullied
Don’t let people push you around, or should I say, away from our baby. Men tend to do things differently from women when it comes to changing diapers or bathing, but it is your little way.
If it is a problem, then talk to your partner about it. But don’t let your partner push you away from your baby.
Make eye contact
Babies love to stare into your eyes, and I’m sure you will love to just sit there and stare into his/her beautiful little eyes.
Fatherhood is something to be enjoyed, so enjoy it. It is important to spend time with your baby right from the word go. You can’t just think that you will be able to make up for it at a later stage, you can’t. This is the perfect time to start bonding with your baby.
