Being Helpful at Home During Pregnancy

It's better for both partners to share the responsibilities and chores of parenthood. Form an equal-parenthood partnership with your husband. Encourage him to take equal responsibility for parenting your new baby. He'll enjoy being a father much more if he is actively involved in the care and decision making for his new daughter or son.

Dad Can Bond with Baby, Too

The baby's father can begin bonding with the baby before birth and continue after the baby is born. Encourage your partner to try the following suggestions.
Have your partner talk to the baby while it is in the uterus.
Encourage your partner to talk to the baby soon after birth. Babies bond to sound quickly.
Have your partner hold the baby close and make eye contact; a baby relates to people through sight and smell.
Let your partner feed the baby. It's easy if you bottlefeed.
If you breastfeed, let him give the baby a bottle of your expressed breast milk.
Encourage him to help with daily baby chores, such as changing diapers, holding the baby when it is restless, dressing and bathing the baby.
Ask your partner to get up occasionally at night with the baby.
