New dads: get involved

If you are new to parenting, you may not feel confident holding your baby or helping with bathing, changing nappies, feeding, settling, etc. The only way to learn, though, is to have a go. The more time you spend with your baby the more confident you will become and the more enjoyment you will get from this new person in your life.

  • Let baby get to know your face, your smell and your voice.
  • Sing, talk and read to your child.
  • Try different ways of settling your child until you find what works for you.
