16 Ways To Not Be A Worthless Dad On Your First Day Home With A New Baby
Never, NEVER, be more than 5 feet away from your partner at all times on that first day.
We don’t care of your partner is in the living room with the baby and you need to go to the bedroom to get something – if it’s more than five feet away, it’s too far. Now, there are a few loopholes here. If your partner specifically asks for you to go to another room for something, you may go. If she doesn’t give you a specified return time, you may attempt to do whatever you needed to do, but do it quickly. Another loophole: she’s sick of your face and doesn’t want to see it. If that’s the case, remove yourself from her presence immediately. But stay close enough that you can hear her whisper for you to come back, because she will.
