Further tips for infant care


I have now been a father for over one week, which I feel qualifies me as a childcare expert. As time permits, we will continue trying to share some of these learnings with you in pictographic form, for your edification.

Parenthood is undeniably incredible, and I am thrilled every day to have a daughter. It does however come with some trials, as has been well documented to date.

More so, the combination of incessant wriggling with a specially calibrated wailing joins forces to add an outrageous amount of stress to the endeavour.
