Accept that commotion and chaos are unavoidable with a new baby in the house. New mothers are often overwhelmed by the never-ending baby duties—nappy changes, feedings, putting their baby to sleep—as well as the housework. Mommies work round the clock to keep their homes clean and their babies happy. Trying to handle everything on their own can lead to exhaustion and resentment. A little help from the husband with the baby is always appreciated!
Sharing responsibilities will reduce stress, maintain a fair balance at home, and allow you and your partner to spend quality time together, which can be difficult with a newborn in the house.
Make your partner a part of your pregnancy and encourage him to accompany you to all check-ups and classes. It is important that your partner bonds with the baby even before they are born.
Allow your husband to be alone with the baby at times so he can practice caring for the newborn on his own. If the baby begins to cry, give him the freedom to figure out how to soothe the child on his own. Do not be around them the whole time. Take a break and give your husband time to perfect his role as a father.
Allow your husband to support you with your baby's daily care.. Make him in charge of bedtime activities such as brushing, cleaning, nappy/diaper changing, and so on. This will be a huge help to you and a wonderful opportunity for your husband to bond with the baby.
You should encourage your partner to read, sing, and bathe the child. Also, during regular activities, let them wear the baby in a front baby carrier.
When it comes to babies' needs, mothers have a sixth sense. However, fathers may require more time to bond with their children. Involving your partner in your baby's duties and care will not only reduce your workload but will also give your husband confidence in managing the baby on his own. Remember that parenting is a team effort, not a one-person job!
