Hygiene, Diapers, and Dad Jokes – Steve’s Daddy Tips (5-8-19)
Hi, I’m Steve and I’m a new Dad who has learned a lot of things over the last several months and I want to pass along some knowledge to you!
Each week I will be giving you some new tips for first-time parents and one spectacular Dad joke! So let's get to the tips!
- Today’s first Daddy Tip is how to teach your little one about personal hygiene early in their life. They can’t really do much in the washing or bathing department on their own, but what they can do is brush! Every night before bed we give Charlotte her toothbrush and she takes care of business! Sure, she chews on the bristles more than she actually brushes, but it still gets the job done and is way easier than trying to brush their teeth for them. Plus, chewing on the brush bristles can totally help if they have some teething pain.
- The second Daddy Tip of the week is a little trick we learned when Charlotte was sick a few months ago. It’s called the late night diaper check and it can seriously reduce diaper rash when your little one is under the weather. All you do is just peek into their bedroom right before you go to sleep and do a quick smell test to see if the pooed. If your little one has a stomach bug, they might be pooing in their sleep, so checking a few after you put them to bed can avoid them having to sleep in a dirty diaper all night long.
- And the final Daddy Tip is for all of the mom’s out there who are trying to tell dad jokes. Don’t even try it. Seriously, your versions of dad jokes just aren’t as funny as ours. My mom was all excited to tell me a dad joke the last time she visited but it kinda fell flat. Her joke was “what did 0 say to 8? Nice belt!” OK, Mom, that’s cute but everyone’s heard that one before. Leave the dad jokes to the pros.
And speaking of awesome dad jokes here’s a real winner!
