How Good are Dads as Primary Caregivers?

Over a third of married fathers in the US are now primary caregivers. While many dads have the best intentions they are not always as tuned into their baby's needs as they could be so John Duke Design announces two new apps to help.

A survival guide for dads left holding the baby.

Dads often try to do several things at once like watch the game on TV, talk on the phone and keep in tune with baby's needs. And what happens when mom sees this parenting style? Trouble!

Two new parenting apps help - In Dad's Care: Birth to 6 months, and In Dad's Care: 6 to 12 months provide core information for these dads.

With these Apps it's back to basics and who knows how the new baby should be looked after? Mom of course and these apps are designed to allow mom's knowledge to be added to the core baby care info already provided. Mom can load up the app and leave dad in charge.

Once mom has loaded up the app what does dad want? Fast and easy access to it. In these \apps the core information can be accessed in seconds. When the baby is going berserk that last thing any dad wants is to be spending time trawling through screen after screen of content looking for help. These apps provide core information only, it's what dad needs, not what he wants. If dad wants more information maybe it's time to read a parenting book or two.

In addition the apps have a section on dad survival - the first few months living with a new baby can be really stressful and most dads find this time a challenge. There is information on coping and most importantly - sex, will it ever happen again? And there are also sections on First Aid (how to prepare for medical dramas); and a Grandparent updater - things have changed since they were parents. Do they know how to use the car safety seat, fold the stroller without taking baby's finger tip off, set up the folding playard, etc?

In Dad's Care - dedicated to assisting new Dads survive and enjoy their baby.
