How supportive are you as a breastfeeding dad?
Okay so it’s hard to be ‘hands on’ with breastfeeding when you’re lacking the essential tools. But this is no excuse to offer no support at all. Find out how much support your parenting style offers with this quick quiz.
You’re probably the one of your friends who likes to hang loose. We’re convinced you will always cover the basics, but there may be times when you need to provide extra support. Being natural comes *ahem* naturally to you and you’ve got the potential to be a fantastic dad. Just don’t be afraid to surprise people by being more proactive every now and then.
Always dependable, you can be relied on to keep everything firmly in shape. You probably like to be organised and most babies thrive on set routines – a happy baby is the first step towards happy parents. That doesn’t mean there won’t be times when it would help to introduce some flexibility, or maybe some extra control? That’s the thing with babies. One minute everything seems sorted – the next it’s all change.
You’re the sort of person who likes to keep their hands full. There’s no doubt you are going to get up close and personal when looking after the new baby. Just remember that you don’t need to be in everyone’s face all the time. Everyone needs to loosen the straps every now and then.
We know we can depend on you to keep everything firmly in place, no matter what is going on around you. Juggling tasks under pressure probably doesn’t phase you at all and we’d expect you to have more energy than the average dad. Just make sure you grab some downtime, you never know when the next baby-induced marathon is going to start.
Assuming everything is okay, your biggest fear about the birth process is:
Becoming a dad gives you licence to say the cheesiest jokes ever and just shrug off the criticism (or the sheer venom of those eye rolls). Whilst most dad jokes are pretty bad, they still seem to make the kids smile – if not laugh… Check out this groanfest of dad jokes and select which one you find funniest for each subject, and we’ll tell you your dad joke style!
If it’s worth telling once, it’s worth telling every single time the subject comes up. We bet you’re unable to resist letting rip your trusted collection of hand-tooled, well-worn dad jokes. Drive past a cemetery? It’s time to quip – “People are dying to get in there!” or “It’s the dead centre of town!” The plus point? Your children will say this joke in their head every time they pass a cemetery. Your work here is done Dad Joke master!
New jokes may come and go, but why be topical and up to date when you can rely on vintage classics where everyone already knows the punchline? If they don’t, they’ll remember it next time! Why? Because your jokes have stood the test of time and are proven to be funny. For at least the first few times you hear them, anyway…
There’s nothing more groan-worthy than a pun and few joke tellers get as much personal pleasure out of telling jokes as punners. That magical play on words; especially when slipped into casual conversation, can create the biggest reaction from your audience. That fact that some people will be genuinely annoyed by your puns is just collateral damage.
Let’s be honest, your favourite jokes don’t seem to stray very far from the cubicle of toilet humour. If fart jokes are your number ones, we wouldn’t be surprised if you follow through for poo jokes as number twos. Farting in a lift may be wrong on so many levels, but kids love rude jokes so enjoy this time of innocence before their rude jokes start becoming blue!
