While mothers bear their child and feel them inside their belly's, fathers must make a conscious effort to develop bonds with their children and find their place in this new family life. There’s no need to wait until birth, these bonds can be developed even during pregnancy!
Using the Kangaroo Method by hugging your baby in their diapers on your bare chest, skin to skin will create a sense of comfort and calmness for the both of you. Mostly used with premature babies, this technique keeps your baby warm and comforts them. Try it and you will find it is somewhat magical! You will want to repeat the experience over and over! You can even nap on the sofa with your baby on your chest and enjoy this period of rest and affection. Wonderful!
