You are a new father – with new responsibilities, more pressure, greater expectations, and the little one demanding more of your time. Fatherhood will bring in a lot of changes in your life which are clearly not what you were expecting and will give you a jolt of surprises, but of course in a good way.

IT MAY HAVE ELUDED you until now but with a few easy adjustments, I’ll show you how to achieve the Holy Grail of parenthood: a loving and calm, tantrum-free bedtime routine. Picture the scene if you will. You’ve spent the best part of an hour coaxing your child to sleep, pleading with them to close their eyes. You’re at least three bedtime stories down and STILL they refuse to lie still or let you leave the room. By some miraculous intervention from some higher power they finally give in to the tug of slumber and you hastily retreat into the sanctuary of your grown-up space completely exhausted.

In my experience parents the world over struggle to get their kids to sleep quickly and without quarrel. Well, the solution is a little closer than you may realise. Enter the calm, perfectly balanced, serene parent. That’s you.

The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky – Margaret McMillan A child’s play is not just all toys and indoor games. Children acquire knowledge experientially through play, experimentation and discovery, which can be most effectively learned through outdoor play. Playing outside provides an opportunity for children to experience the world with all of their senses. To encourage outdoor play and learning, Action for Children’s Environment calls upon you to participate in a global movement Outdoor Classroom Day on October 12th 2017.

The first year is always critical for the new baby. What will she eat, what will she wear, how to keep her safe, vaccinations… these are common questions all first-time parents ask. Food is, of course, very important because it is directly related to the development and the child’s growth. Babies breastfeeding will take between 8 and 12 feedings in a day. Those on formula foods will need between 6 and 10 feeds a day. Usually, solid foods will be introduced when the baby is around 6 months. Always remember, nutrition is key in the 1st year. Make sure to start a healthy eating habit quickly for your infant. But the feeding must always depend on the readiness of a child because every baby is different. How Often an Infant Must Feed They are still very small, but they can know when feeling full or hungry. Feed her whenever she feels hungry.

However, just like women, men’s physical chemistry also undergoes changes – majorly they experience a significant drop in their testosterone levels, and other hormones too change to make them more nurturing and caring for their family. And there is a plus to these hormonal changes – lower levels of testosterone are linked to a reduced risks of prostrate cancer and higher cholesterol. Father’s too become as involved as moms in their kids’, and in fact belong to a group of mammal species where fathers play a vital role in the upbringing of their children. And mind you, this group is mad up of less than 6% of mammals! Now that is something to be proud of, isn’t it?
