◍ Presents For New Dads; Our Top 5

Being a parent or a new dad is the most hardest yet rewarding job in the world, you may have heard that and read that plenty of times but you will not know or understand that saying until you have had your first child. The lack of sleep contributes to the haze and uncertainty, the love, the sense of achievement and pride adds to your emotional state and the feeling of protectiveness and vulnerability will make you feel overwhelmed. It may seem like a lot to take in but this is one of the most precious moments you will ever experience and it is worth cherishing every little moment.

Having a new baby is a big step and it may feel at times that mum and baby are spending the most time together, but your role is still very important. Do not take for granted the bonding, the special moments, cuddling, feeding, bathing and changing duties. These moments do go by quickly so ensure you soak up as much as you can.

We at DEMI+CO know that sometimes new dads can be left feeling a bit out of the loop, so in lieu of traditional cigars and stiff drinks some jewellery might commemorate the occasion better.

Tips for new dads

  1. Do some skin-to-skin contact. You may have been told this a lot but it does help the bonding process and feels lovely
  2. Read to your kid (or kids) as often as possible. The more you read the more your kids will enjoy reading, learning and it will create some lovely memories for them
  3. You're not babysitting your kids, you're parenting. Do not get the two confused, you are their dad and you are responsible in looking after and parenting them 
  4. Get over any aversion you have to changing nappies. It’s not that bad, it takes only a minute or two and its over
  5. Be content with being a support system for the baby and your partner. A happy environment when the baby arrives is so important, be there for all of them
  6. Don't take a good babysitter for granted. Do not let go of a good babysitter they are hard to come by
  7. Babies won't break! Don’t be afraid snuggle tight, but don’t also drop the baby
  8. Don't ask, just do. If your partner looks like they need a break hold the baby while she has a break
  9. Take those bedtime and eating routines seriously. Babies and children need routines and dependability, it creates less of a stressful environment for babies and adults
  10. Working a full-time job doesn't excuse you from child-related responsibilities. Dealing with a newborn baby and children is more tiring then a normal work day just giving your partner 30 minutes or a hour will make so much difference and will give you chance to bond
  11. Just take pictures of your little one constantly. You can never take enough pictures, go crazy!
  12. Try not to overthink things if you don't need to. Go with your gut and remember your love for them will ensure you always have their best interest at heart
  13. And remember: the days are long, but the years are short. Create as many memories as possible, the ups and the downs do go hand in hand but you only get one chance and no reruns so make the most of it
