ER physician Dr. Travis Stork and his wife Parris are expecting their first child and we welcome childbirth educator Sarah Lavonne to share some very important parenting tips with our dad-to-be.
Dr. Travis admits, "I still have a lot to learn," explaining he is feeling a little bit nervous about everything that is about to come with being a parent -- something that Sarah says is very natural. She reveals her 3 top tips for new dads, telling Travis:
Give yourself so much grace: "It's your baby, you get to figure it out."
Use common sense: "It's not hard... they are much tougher than you think."
Love your baby: "Ultimately, that is what your baby needs"
Sarah's tips include: making sure everything is clean (for girls, make sure you wipe front-to-back) in order to remove all residue and also make sure a diaper is not too tight or too loose in order to avoid a diaper blowout!
See Travis' daddy skills in action as he faces off against Dr. Andrew Ordon in our Baby Daddy Challenge, which includes diapering and swaddling. Find out what Sarah thinks of their diapering and swaddling skills, here.
