A Survival Guide for Dads left holding the Baby
(PRWEB) October 16, 2013
A new study confirms that many parents find caring for a child much more tiring than paid work. (36% to 5%).
This study by the Pew Research Centre - http://tinyurl.com/lfvs9oo- provides hard data to support what many parents already knew - parenting is hard work, for most, significantly harder than paid work, but also Mom is still doing more of it. That's not to suggest that Dad is deliberately avoiding child care as he is doing more paid work, and more work around the home.
The problem, particularly for Dads with babies and toddlers is that Dad gets out of touch with what's needed.
Two new parenting apps help - In Dad's Care: Birth to 6 months, and In Dad's Care: 6 to 12 months, each provides 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 beserk 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 survival (for Dad) - the first few months living with a new baby can be really stressful and most Dads find this time a challenge. 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.
