There are millions of articles on tips for new moms but I think it’s as equally important to provide tips for new dads too. Just like moms, they are new to the process and they need just as much guidance as moms do. Here are a few great tips that I thought would be helpful for that new dad.
1. Seek Guidance – Before you leave the hospital ask the nurse to show you the basics. They are great teachers. They can show you how to hold the baby, swaddle and bathe the baby. Don’t leave the hospital without asking about anything that may be on your mind.
2. Be Supportive -Moms emotions are flying all over the place after having a baby. Remain supportive and patient as she works through these new emotions. The best thing for a new dad is just say yes and how may I help? Sit back and wait for a response.
3. Take One Day At A Time – You don’t become a great parent overnight. It takes time and patience. Trust your instincts and learn as you go along. As time goes on you will get better and better at it. Remember to your child you are their superstar!
