Welcoming a child in a family is one of the greatest joys. As soon as you have a baby, you will suddenly notice that everything centers round the child. Between wanting to build a bond with the baby and taking care of the baby correctly, a new father might feel a little lost. Many fathers take to babies indifferently, not that there is no love, but they do not view babies as beings who need feedings and comforting, and men are just not sure how to go about it!
Look closely. Who feeds the baby? Who cleans the baby? Who rocks the baby to sleep? Who calms and comforts the baby? Mother, right? So new fathers often feel that they are not so much a part of the baby routine because they are not as inherent a part of ‘baby routine’ as mothers are. That being said, some fathers are just shy at the beginning – leave the baby with them and you find both of them grinning after some time. Fathers do not get enough time with the baby – and when they are available, say after work in the evenings- it is either feeding time or sleeping time. Fathers need to spend some quality time with their kids so as to develop that bond, that friendship. Fathers should try to realize that they do not need to be like their child’s mother (the baby already has a mother, right?) but just be yourself and get to know the little being you got home.
