Do you breast feed or bottle feed? If you breast feed,you can have a bottle ready for when daddy comes home, after he unwinds, and let him have that bonding time with him. You can encourage him to find a way to soothe the baby, in his own way. My present husband was great at that, when our three were babies. I breast fed all of them, but would pump so he could feed them. One of them wouldn't even go to sleep,unless she was laying on his chest.You, as the mother, just have to be supportive, so he can feel the joy of having a baby too!When you get the baby and he doesn't stop crying,say something like "See I can't always get him to stop either, maybe you can help me." Trust me ,he's not as near as mad as he is hurt. He feels left out, and if you want to make him feel great about being a dad, take every opportunity you can to help them bond! You have to remember, he was really looking forward to this too, and at the age your baby is, he really only cares about who is going to feed and take care of him next.I hope this helps. I know when you're a new mother, you don't want to relinquish your childs care to anyone else, but most likely he will do just fine.Be careful not to step in too quickly, give assistance if he asks. Good luck,and let us know what happens.
