Re: New Fathers?
The best advice I got was about advice. My old boss told me, "Everyone is going to want to be helpful and give you advice. Listen to it all, think about it, and then weigh it against your own values. If it passes that test, use it."
You'll be surprised what some people will suggest, and how willing you become to try *anything* to get that baby to sleep, eat, stop crying, etc. Stay patient, stay calm, and keep your wits about you. You'll eventually learn what the baby needs and wants, and things will get easier.
