  • My SO took some time to warm up to the whole daddy idea as well. Honestly time is what it took. As she became older a little easier to deal with he began become more at ease with her. I think he was just so afraid that he would do something wrong & that fear took a long while to get over. In our case as well we spent two weeks in the hosp with her so I am sure the fear he had before she was born wasnt helped by this little detour to happily ever after. It was frustrating to me & there were many arguments bc I simply didnt understand since I automatically took to her & did everything needed & responded to her cries but I dont know he just didnt so much or as quickly as I had so for us it was just time & a lot of patience on my part that I didnt do/show well like I said lots of arguments & frustration. Talk with him find out why he is like this maybe he is afraid too, good luck.
