Sorry, Piers Morgan, it’s Not Emasculating Babywearing as a Dad

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has been criticised for his latest statement on dads and their decision to use baby carriers. He said “The adoption of the papoose by some men is the best example of emasculation I have ever seen. They look ridiculous.” As a dad who used baby carriers for quite a lot of my daughters early life, I’m here to ask whether it is emasculating babywearing as a dad? Or is Piers simply wrong on this one. If you want to watch the segment, here it is: Is it Emasculating Babywearing as a Dad? When I…

Father of One Closes Car Door, Wife is Said to Be “Very Proud”

It’s something millions of us do every single day, but when the Duchess of South Wales, more commonly known as Ross, closed his car door on Wednesday, his wife was utterly shocked. “I’m very proud of my husband.” She said, commenting on the closing of the car door. “He’s usually rather useless if I’m honest, I mean I’d prefer it if he did the ironing or maybe the dishes, but I’m so happy he managed to close the car door!

If you want to see some of the stupid shit I’m referring…

What About the Dads? – NHS Perinatal Mental Health Plan Doesn’t Mention Dads

In an article posted on the Guardian, the NHS plan to invest heavily in perinatal mental health over the coming years. They said that “only 3% of the country had good access to perinatal mental health care as recently as 2014, but that it expected to have extended that to 100% by next April.”  And they also said that they will be “putting into effect a second wave of community perinatal services, costing £23m, as part of a wider package of measures aimed at providing care to 30,000 more women by 2021.” But whilst these plans are great, there is…

Feeding Your Child a Strangers Breast Milk – It’s No Big Deal

I’m not sure if you watched This Morning yesterday, but they were discussing feeding your baby with a strangers breast milk. If you want to watch the video before reading this post then you can do so now: What Irritated Me About This The thing that immediately irritated me slightly about this was that bottle-feeding got brought up pretty early on. I have no idea why Ruth even made the comment “there’ll be mothers who’ll say their babies are thriving on formula.”  I’ll admit that this comment did come after one mother said that they’re both thriving.
