Tom is a lot more technology-minded than I am. He likes to keep an eye on these kinds of things and is definitely an early adopter. He gets wrapped up in all that technology offers or, at least, claims it offers. Whereas I like to see how these things would benefit us and fit into our lifestyle before we dive in.
Smart technology = smart dad?
When I was pregnant with Cece, Tom stumbled and fell into a bit of a technological black hole. Anything you could add a bit of tech to he was all for it. I had to dial him down a little bit otherwise who knows how much stuff we’d have ended up with that we’d never use! I’m pretty sure that throwing himself into looking at baby tech helped Tom feel useful. While I was pregnant there wasn’t a whole lot for him to do and it’s hard to really start to feel like a dad until the baby arrives.
Help with baby
In 2016, only 25% of British dads felt that there was enough support to help them play a positive role in family life. Becoming a new parent is an exciting and amazing experience but it can also be super daunting. No one tells you how to stop the crying or how to get the right amount of sleep.
It must be hard being a dad in those first days. You can’t prepare in the same way a new mum does and no one really talks about your role.
Finding your feet and how you fit in can’t be easy. But there are certain things you can do to make the journey easier, and Compare Cover has compiled a rundown of current tech to help you on your way! After all, even the most heroic Super Dads need a helping hand to keep them going.
What do you think? Are there any techy gadgets that you think are missing? Or any that you think shouldn’t be on there?
