We all agree that on the beginning of baby’s life Mummy is the most important person. I hasten to inform you that is only because baby thinks that the two of you are one. It will start changing at around 6 or 7 months, your baby begins to realize that he’s separate from you. The second reason is because your baby can’t live without your boobies 😛
But in baby’s life should be one more person. The same important as you- Daddy! I love the bound between my Son and his Daddy. It’s melting my heart when I see them cuddle each other. I’m in seven heaven when LP is smiling when Daddy is coming home from work. Sometimes I’m jealous but hey till 6-7 month we are like one body so I don’t need to be afraid of my position 😀
So if Daddy want to bath your baby let him do that. I know, I know you doing that better. But for baby is not problem that Daddy will forgot about armpits or all his ridges. As soon as he is not drowning him is ok:) Trust me! Anyway is good for you. Think about this 20 minutes only for yourself:D And to be honest on the beginning I was to stressed to bathing my LP so Daddy was very helpful:D
If you breastfeeding is good to express milk from time to time. Than Daddy can feed baby as well. Is really good idea because being so close with little one helping develop deep bound. Changing nappy, clothes and daily caring of baby are helping get to know them each other. So you can relax of course as long as baby is not falling from changing table and Daddy is not practice baby juggling. I know that it sounds quite ridiculous but we all know our husbands.
When you are going together for walks make sure that Daddy will be pushing baby stroller. He can feel like Lewis Hamilton in Formula 1 and you can enjoy your free time on fresh air 😉 My grandmother always says ‘If you will have kids you need to straightaway engage your husband in daily caring of baby if you will not do that you probably will be alone in it.’ I need to say thank you to my nana! My husband is spending a lot of time with our son when he is not at work. Of course sometimes it’s look like that
But in general they both doing great 🙂
I hope your husbands enjoying being parent as much as my hubby. Tell me about it in comments.
