There’s something that changes in a husband the moment he knows he’s going to be a father. If you look closely, you’ll find him smiling to himself quite often. He’ll jump at the slightest of your pains and will always be on a high-alert, ready to rush you to hospital. All this, and other such things, indicate that your husband might turn out to be an awesome dad. Here are a few other reasons that’ll make you think so too:
10. Takes Cooking Seriously
He would’ve helped in chopping those veggies or even whipped up a smoothie for you. But in-between all this, he would have been taking serious notes of each dish. For all you know, he might even be conjuring a secret recipe – something that’ll come in handy when those Mommy v/s Daddy debates arise in the future. After all, a sweet bribe does work in winning over the baby.
9. Learns Diaper Changing
Your husband will be on tenterhooks while handling the delicate newborn. While he can’t do much about feed and sleep, he’ll pitch in for the diaper duties. It’s his way of getting involved with baby care.
8. Never Misses A Postnatal/Pediatrician Visit
Is your husband very particular about attending every postnatal care and pediatric visits? Then there are high chances that he’ll not miss those important parent-teacher meets, sports meet, or annual day celebrations at your child’s school too.
7. Is Mindful Of His Words/Behavior More Than Ever
Earlier, your husband might have lost his temper at the slightest provocation or used cuss words each time someone jumped the signal. But now, he’ll be more in control of his behavior. It’s because now he is aware that he needs to set the right example for his baby to follow in his footsteps.
6. His Eyes Sparkle When He Shops For The Baby
He may not express it, but your husband would be equally excited about shopping for the baby. But how can you tell? Just look into his eyes each time he picks something he likes for the baby. That sparkle would be hard to miss!
5. Gets Nervous When The Baby Is Vaccinated
We’re sure you would have noticed this by now if your baby has already gotten the first vaccination shots. Your baby may have cried a bit after being pierced with the syringe needle. But your husband would be the one feeling the pain, much after the vaccination gets done with.
4. Always Tries To Rush Home From Work
No more late work nights for your husband. From reluctantly leaving for work to rushing home before the baby wakes up, he’ll leave you spellbound with his eagerness to reach home early. Something he wouldn’t have done in ages!
3. Balances His Social And Family Life Well
With late work nights out of the window, so will the late night-outs with his buddies. Your husband might have literally fought for his rights to stay out with his buddies on a weekend. However, your baby will change that single-handedly. He’ll now prefer the coziness of playing with the baby at home over those noisy parties. Not that he’ll give up entirely, but will surely cut down on them drastically.
2. Sings/Dances With The Baby
That loud music and crazy dancing would also become a thing of the past for him. Everyone loves to let down their hair and party hard once in a while. But for your husband, his idea of partying will now be singing to the baby or dancing weirdly – just to hear the baby laugh. Aren’t these moments priceless?
1. Will Always Kiss The Baby Before Leaving For Work
The baby’s first words, the first crawl, or the first steps – are all impromptu milestone achievements. Despite all his efforts, your husband does realize that he misses out on them by being away at work. But he still manages to create his own precious memories by kissing the sleeping baby before leaving home. This sweet memory is enough for him to last the entire day and motivate him to reach home early in the evening. Aww…..
Aren’t these reasons enough to believe that your husband will surely make an awesome dad? Do share this with him and see him already declare himself the best with pride!!
