16 Ways To Not Be A Worthless Dad On Your First Day Home With A New Baby
Don’t be a worthless dad on that first day – make her take a nap.
Moms with kids at home will not need to be told to take a nap. They will walk into the house and head straight for the bedroom, they won’t even hold the door open for you. But first-time moms? Oh, bless their hearts. They’re not going to want to let the baby out of their sight, and they will probably feel guilty for sleeping through the big homecoming. Don’t let her feel guilty. Assure her you’ve got things covered, and gently usher her to bed. She needs sleep, probably desperately. You want to make sure she’s putting her needs higher on her list, because she will have removed them from the list completely by this point.
