Sometimes it can be difficult for Dads when a new baby arrives. There is a lot of focus on Mum and of course on the baby. But, Dad and baby need time to bond too.
You don’t realise how hard it is to be a Mum until you are in the thick of it. People will tell you about the sleepless nights, the battles over vegetables, the nagging it takes to get a pair of shoes on their feet, and the temper tantrums.
Parenthood can be a lonely journey, and an uncertain one. That’s why your coffee group can be such a lifeline. A supportive network of Mums whose children are all at the same stage.
Do you find parenting a lonely journey? Ironically, you are not alone in this thought. Many parents find themselves disconnected from the adult world when their little one arrives.
It seems that as soon as your baby arrives the flood gates open with sleep tips and advice pouring at you from every direction.
