The arrival of the new born is a bucket of joy and happiness for the whole family and particularly the parents. They are the one who are the main care giver and are responsible for the child and among the parents it is assumed that mother is having some magical relationship with the baby and only she can handle the baby with utmost care. It’s not the case. But Pittsburgh pediatrician Mark Diamond says, “Other than the physical act of nursing, dads can do everything else: holding the baby, cuddling, soothing.” And the unique connection between a new dad and his baby is special and has its very own aspects and importance’s.
Being a new dad the feelings are so different and exciting though parts of it may be new to you – like changing a diaper or soothing your crying baby.Never based any conclusion on assumptions, like the mother have a strong instinct to understand the baby need better then you or the connection between mom and baby is naturally strong. It is positive in many cases but you two also have a strong bond only if you spend time with your baby. You can do the routine works for the baby like bottle feeding, dipper changing and giving burb
and bath. The bond may not seem apparent during the first few days when the mother-baby bond may already be thriving – but it will be there.
Caroline DiBattisto, assistant professor of pediatrics at Georgia Health Sciences University, says. “Parents should support each other and work together as a team. It’s important for dads to relax, be themselves, help Mom out, spend time with the baby, and enjoy this special time.”
Many father just thought that only fulfilling the need with financial help is the only responsibility of a father. They also try to show love by buying gifts, toys, baby hamper UK, and bring cloths for the child. No one can deny the financial help aspect, without it the mother also won’t be able to fulfill her responsibility fully too but other than that the father’s should also work on the challenges of early parenthood and don’t leave the mother along in this new and difficult take. She is also new to parenting, she also have no experience in that too so corporate with her to master the skills.
It’s not the case that when your baby will grow up then you will play with them as they won’t remember at this very early stage about who is caring for them. It’s true but the baby feels love and care. He smile towards the care giver, he can sense the feelings of their hand and fragrance. So the fathers who have special strong bounds with the child are those who worked for it form very beginning. I think, a lot of dads feel nervous that babies are fragile and they’re somehow going to do something wrong. But don’t be very afraid you will learn within 2-4 day that how your child is behaving and what they need at a specific time. Even the way your child is crying is a great communicator that what the child need at this particular time.
The relationship of both mother and father with the baby is unique and has its own importance. And the love you give to your child will go a long way to build his personality and skills.
