Dad's Notes

Ready into Fatherhood

Being a dad is not so easy as you think. You have to prepare all things about fatherhood. Preparation for being a good dad is more than just reading story books, childproofing the electrical outlets, and buying a mini-bus. That’s an easy stuff. The important things are those that most first-time dads learn along the way. Here, you can learn about it.

Understanding Fatherhood

You’ll be more important to the kids than to anyone else. Don’t be afraid. The kids need you but you don’t have to force yourself to things that you can’t do. Let mommy do the works what you can’t do. You need an understanding about fatherhood in order to make works efficient looking after the kids. Assisting mommy to taking care of the kids is also a dad’s role in the household.

Be Confident

The main point is your kids need you. Dads are always afraid of the kids can’t get their best caring. It is a training job for you to be a daddy. A dad might not know what to do in early time, but just jump in. You will learn and know more about what you are doing.

Instinct to Kids’ Care

You may be confused when your baby gets sick. You often see your wife take care of the baby well. When the baby gets sick, she can take it out easily even though she doesn’t learn how to care the baby.

That’s an instinct. You also have the instinct to solve your problems when caring the baby. You have your own way. You’ll find your baby’s most ticklish spots. You will figure out how to get him to take a food. And you’ll make your wife miss the baby because you cling to the baby so much.

Never Give Up

Many new dads wonder if they have a confidence to be good daddy. So they try to know how to tap into their softer side. You can try this: look at your baby. Feel what you feel. Then show it to your child. Show it by loving acts. Holding or humming your child. Give your child best indulgence.

Your job is more important than ever now. But you have some decisions to make. Can you keep working until 8 p.m. every night? Can you really have time to wake and fulfill baby’s desire until he falls asleep?

That’s your trial. You can’t run from the duty of caring child. Even if your child grows older, you still have the duty to be a good daddy.

Your Life is not over yet

Remember! You’ll sleep with your wife again. And of course, you’ll get the condition like above again and again. Your wife’s ups and downs on her pregnancy should be preparing you for an unpredictable future condition of inconsistent intimacy. You must have plans.

You may have to adjust to your wife putting the baby first sometimes, and you may have to suspend some activities that you’d enjoyed as a couple. But you can’t always prepare everything. You have to plan a fatherhood life since you are married with your wife.
