How the Father can be Involved in the Babys Life

(0 reviews)

Just as you are learning to be a new mother, give your husband the time and space to learn to be a new father. Besides being helpful to you, involving your husband in the care of your newborn will give him confidence and also help him to bond with the baby.

What can a father do when the baby’s schedule basically involves eating, sleeping and pooping?

Fathers can gently massage or stroke the baby’s hands or legs while talking to the baby to get familiar and bond with the newborn.

Let Your Husband Try These:

  • Soothe the baby if he/she is being fussy while feeding.
  • Rock the baby to sleep. This also gives a break to the mother who is otherwise constantly attending to the baby.
  • Sing or read to the baby. Babies love the sound of your voice and it helps to develop their language skills.
  • Change diapers once in a while.
  • Give the baby a bath.

A father’s involvement helps children build self-esteem and gives the child emotional security.

Parenting can be as exhausting as it is rewarding – share it with your husband. You may be surprised at how loving and involved fathers can be if given the opportunity.
