Steve’s Tips For Brand New Daddys (5-16-18)
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!
- The first tip is about daycare, and it’s not so much a tip as it is a warning. If you plan for your child to go to daycare, be ready for your sweet baby to be pretty much non-stop sick for the first several months. Since Charlotte has gone to daycare (about 2 in a half months) she has had about 2 weeks where she wasn’t sick. Those little rugrats pass around germs, viruses, and bacteria like that guy sneezing at the salad bar. But, the doctor says it will help build up her immunities for when she is older.
- Tip number two is always have your phone handy because you never know what adorable thing your little baby will do next. The fact that I practically have my phone recording at all times while hanging out with Charlotte is the only reason I have all the awesome Charlotte clips. Yeah, that was awesome, but I’d like 2 more farts, one grunt, and a Chewbacca noise.
- The final tip this week is get your baby on a schedule as soon as you can and stick to it! Just like adults, babies are creatures of habit. The sooner you can get them on a schedule the sooner you can start to experience some sense of normalcy in your routine. Now, not every baby will take to a schedule, but if you can nail one down it could be life changing!
And now it's time for the quality Dad joke...
