Baby Care Tips for New Dads

I am proud of my soon-to-be Fatherhood.

I do not take it lightly and have in fact studied baby-stuff for many years, albeit unknowingly. For example, I know (FOR SURE) that an umbilical cord can be cleanly cut with a Magnum .357 in the heat of battle from several yards away. I also know that an infant can be safely/easily dropped from heights of at least seven or more stories into the arms of robotic enforcement officers. I have also learned that if the grandparents have African masks everywhere and creepy music suddenly plays at every mention of my baby's name, my kid is likely the Anti-Christ, and I will die a fiery death in some coincidentally filmed location only seconds away from rescue.

That, of course, is stuff every new dad likely knows from the get-go. The point here is to share NEW info. So here we go. We all love our little baby, but HOW we love that little guy is a mystery I hope to (partially) solve here:

Scott,
You do not know me (yet) but I was Edie's neighbor, I dare say in the 90's. Time flies. I think your parenting advice looks sound and reasonable. My husband and I have two of our own. They are 6 and 3 so we have safely made it through infant/toddler years. I may have wiped the babies butts with the hem of my skirt a couple times, but we are no worse for the wear. I hope we can all get together for a play date sometime. Would love to see Edie's belly in the meantime.
Best,
Eli
