Just like Motherhood, Fatherhood can be intense. Fearing how you’ll figure out this fatherhood thing? This article will guide you.
These 5 tips will help you figure out what to do and how to be supportive when your baby arrives.
1. Be a good husband/partner
Being a great dad starts with being a great partner. It’s not about holding the baby right or bathing and dressing the baby properly. It starts with the willingness to be present and willing to participate.
2. Be Observant
Watch closely for the new norm. What are the things your wife does daily? Figure out the daily routines of a new parent. How does she do them? Watch closely and pay attention so you can help with some of them.
3. Make Sure Your Wife Doesn’t Burn Out
It’s so important She takes regular breaks not to break down completely. She needs time for herself. Self care is just as important as baby care. Take over feeds while she rests, watch the baby when she naps, encourage her to go see a movie or do something fun with her friends. She needs it (more than even she knows) and it gives you some wonderful time with your newborn.
4. Be Affectionate
Children need love, but telling them you love them is barely enough. They need to feel loved. Hugging them, snuggling them, and kissing them makes them feel loved. Don’t just say it, show it.
5. Be Present
It is easier to offer presents to replace presence. Presents and Presence are completely different have have different effects on kids. The time you have with your kids absolutely flies by, so really take the time to enjoy it. Take time out of work to be with them.
