Moms are often seen as the superhero parents, but we know that dads do so much work for their little ones! We know you guys are still waking up in the middle of the night, getting the baby ready first thing in the morning, and sharing many of the responsibilities. They say it takes a village, and the dad is the chief.

Create a schedule
Babies are unpredictable, but setting a schedule is step 1 in figuring things out. To help ease that stressful feeling that everything is out of control, take some steps to bring some predictability to your days. Start to get your child on a regular eating and sleeping schedule when you are able, so that you aren’t constantly waiting for what happens next, but you are prepared for it instead! Allow yourself some leeway: babies are people too, and they won’t always play by the ‘rules’. But developing a predictable routine helps everyone out, even if it allows for flexibility.
Schedule fun for yourself
Your child needs a schedule, and so do you! Keep yourself sane by scheduling in the things you enjoy. It’s important to make time for the things that make you happy, even though your child is one of those things! Sometimes you need to do something for yourself that you can enjoy alone or with a loved one. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just a bit of time alone so you can focus on YOU! Dads are such an important part of baby’s life, and self-care for dads means the baby will have a rested and refreshed parent.
Ask for help
We know, asking for help isn’t always what you want to do.
But it’s necessary! No one can do it all on their own, and asking for help is not a sign of weakness. It’s a sign of strength! Your family and friends are willing to help, and so are we. That’s why we offer FREE parenting resources to new mothers and fathers! Call us to see what we can do for you, even as far as giving you the things you might need to take care of your new baby! Thanks, Dads, for ALL you do!
