Can an App help a New Dad with Parenting?

Share Article

There are several parenting apps for new Dads, but do they help? Two new Apps from In Dad's Care, (Birth to 6 months, and 6 months to 12 months), take a different approach by allowing Mom to give Dad the core information he needs.

Assisting New Dads enjoy their baby

The problem - being a new Mom is both tiring and stressful, and most Moms long for Dad to jump in and assist. While the good news is that more Dads are getting involved, not all Dads are confident to take full control, but are often not prepared to raise their hand up and own up to this.

It is well known that men don't like to read instruction manuals (i.e. baby care books), or ask for help, so these Apps are a way to resource him in a manner that he will find acceptable.

These Apps from In Dads Care help by paring the parenting information back to the basics. No fancy graphs showing weight gain over the last 29.5 days, no pretty colored charts, no space for warm and fuzzy pictures of what is clearly the most beautiful baby in the world. Just the basics.

Using that Smart Phone that's within reach 24/7 he can use one of these two parenting apps, either the Birth to 6 months or the 6 to 12 months version, each provides core information for Dads.

With these Apps it's back to basics and who knows how the new baby should be looked after? Mom of course so these Apps are designed to allow Mom's knowledge to be added to the core baby care info already provided - users think of them as customized electronic notebooks. 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 the information. 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, just what Dad needs in the moment.

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. There are sections on sex - after he has quit feeling depressed from reading this, he can check out the other helpful information including on First Aid (how to prepare for medical dramas). There's also 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?
