16 Ways To Not Be A Worthless Dad On Your First Day Home With A New Baby
Make sure you’re paying as much attention to your partner as you are the baby.
We know it seems like this entire list is different ways to pay attention to your partner. And it is. But you have to do even more. Listen, she’s sort of a mess right now. She’s exhausted, physically and mentally. And probably in a significant amount of pain or discomfort. She’s scared and overwhelmed, and a tiny part of her is afraid that you love the baby more. She probably won’t ever say that, but she’s thinking it! Make sure you take plenty of time to reaffirm your love for her, and tell her what an amazing bad-ass she is for giving life to your baby. Seriously, you can’t say it enough.
