How does your SO bond with baby?

Posted by   + Show Post

With our first child, my husband was able to take a 3-month paternity leave, so he had lots of baby bonding time. But this time he wasn't able to do so. I want to make sure he still gets an opportunity to bond with the baby, though!

He just started giving baths to the baby (now 4 months old), which is a great bonding activity. I'm looking for other ways to help him enjoy baby time. What are some other things that your partner does to bond with baby? How do you encourage  your SO to spend quality time with the baby?

I'd love to see your answers! And I'm also posting this on behalf of CafeMom - we might feature some of your responses!

Thanks for your help!

Everything that I do, pretty much.  We're a team - we made this baby together, and we plan on raising him together. :)  He's also been reading a chapter a week to him from his favorite book ("A Tale of Two Cities") since our son was a few weeks old. <3
