    My 2 year old got some Duplos for Christmas. One is a plane/control tower set. He was walking around with the little pilot character (female) in his hand.

    2yo: Where pilot?
    Wife: The pilot is in your hand.
    2yo: Not pilot. That girl.
    Wife: Girls can be pilots too.
    2yo: No. Just girl.

    He saw a few male pilots this week at the airport and now he’s sexist.

    I had to leave town for a night for work. Sleeping through the night was a weird experience. Came back and it feels like the little guy has grown a ton and is a different person.

    For the last 5 months I've been healing from my severe injury and Shelby has been working. I start training as a pharm tech Wed. Excited to go back to work though I'll miss being a stay at home dad.

    5 year old just had a "you'll shoot your eye out" moment with a nerf gun
    Said he was trying to shoot the light switch to turn the fan off in his room, and it somehow bounced back and hit him in the eye

    The nurses will check on your wife what seems like every 30 damn minutes those first couple of days, so be prepared for that. This was the biggest reason I didn't get any sleep at the hospital.

    This is like hundreds of thousands of years of evolution taking over for you and your wife, I bet any doctor would be in a surreal state. My wife had a C-section that I couldn't in the room for. I heard our daughter cry without seeing her and thinking "Oh shit, shouldn't I be happy? I feel like I'm still a kid myself, what will our lives be like now?"

    All typically normal, I felt like I was being an awful person because I wasn't immeciately overjoyed. Turns out a lot of other guys I talked to felt the exact same way.

    1) Skin-to-skin while weird (to me at least) works. Do it as much as possible when they are new born. Your child will be bonded to you like you wouldn’t believe.

    2) Put the baby in the bassinet. My son slept in the hospital either in my arms or my wife’s arms. When we left the hospital and got home he refused to sleep in the bassinet for weeks before we broke him of the habit.

    3) The first day/night home alone panic is real and palpable. It gets exponentially easier after that.

    4) Buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    Also: Give her breaks now. They basically sleep and turn milk into shit for the foreseeable future. Her body just got hit by a truck, let her sleep or go shopping or watch TV. Diapers and bottles aren’t a big deal.

    Definitely have them sleep in the bassinet at the hospital and having the baby lay and rest on your chest because skin to skin is so important.

    Others have alluded to it, but aside from probably being a shock to your sleep schedule, when they’re infants all they can do is eat, sleep, cry, and occasionally chill out while awake. All of those things can occur while you’re holding them, so take advantage of the relatively easy part now because it gets more challenging once they start moving around, talking back, and etc. In other words, enjoy this time for what it is.

    Unless your baby has colic. I hear a version of what you've said from a bunch of other parents and got pretty depressed. "If these are supposed to be the easy times, then go ahead and kill me now."

    Thankfully our kiddo outgrew it eventually and our lives got so much easier.

    Sorry, I didn’t check my non-colicky kid privilege. That would be tough to deal with, but even that comes to an end. My message still stands: enjoy the newborn phase for what it is.

    new dad here so forgive me if this is a stupid question - I'm just looking for answers in as many places as I can

    nearly 4 month old (16 weeks) baby boy has regressed on eating and sleeping the last 4 nights. two weeks ago he was taking 5+ oz each feeding and sleeping at least one 6 hour stretch every night. past 5 days he's back to short feedings, gets upset at the boob, and barely makes it 3 hours before waking up screaming at night. No fever or other signs of general discomfort.

    What say the Dad thread? Growth spurt? HELP ME MY WIFE BABY IS DRIVING ME INSANE

    With our 2nd it went really fast. We went in around 7am, they broke her water around 9 and my daughter came around 130 or 2. I can’t remember the exact time but it was quick. Doc says since this is her 3rd, it’ll probably go even faster this time around.

  48. Can postpartum nurses be troubled to fuck off for just, like, a 2 hour continuous stretch of time?

    "Baby friendly" initiatives are the worst and I'm glad my home institution ditched that shit last year.

    A sleep regression is very normal at that time. I’d be more worried on the food. It’s probably nothing but if it was me I’d call the nurse’s line at the pediatrician to inquire.
