Watch full episode to find out how you can involve your husband and mother-in-law in bringing up your little one.
A new dad’s role is often neglected when talking about the support system that’s available to a new mum. So, how to take care of baby after birth and involve your husband in this beautiful process?
In this episode of Nine Months Season 2, new mum and host Meghna Pant discusses with the experts about how to take care of baby after birth with the help of your husband. Not just that, how is it possible to involve your and your partner’s parents in the process? Take a look.
Meghna shares that when her husband takes their baby down for a walk, even if that’s barely once a week, he’s lauded with praise. But as opposed to this, when she is doing the same thing for her baby, it’s looked at as nothing special. She receives no pat on the back for what she does.
At the same time, she acknowledges the fact that a father’s role is evolving largely. Fathers these days take initiative in bringing up the baby. Whether it is changing the diapers or dressing the little one. They chip in wherever they can biologically.
Psychologist Deepali Ajinkya shares that the decision to have a baby is of both, mum and dad. So, both should share the responsibility should as well. But she points out that the way a man will express his care can be completely different than how a woman would do it. She mentions how more and more dads are participating in their baby’s life, for example, by accompanying the mum for vaccinations. Moreover, they are also asking the right questions.
Further, Deepali Ajinkya also mentions that the marital bond should also be strong. A baby can either bring a couple together or rip them apart. It’s up to you how to make it work.
