Is their tension between you and your wife? It is usual for couples to find, at six months, that they have tension that has built up around how the scheduling is organized. Since you baby keeps changing, it is difficult to have a "regular routine."
Becoming a father changes the way we view ourselves and the world around us. We see ourselves less as a son in relation to our own parents and more on equal footing with our own father. During the first year of parenthood it is usual for a new father to reflect on how he was raised by his own father.
During the fourth month you start to notice that their is a change in your intimate sexual relationship with your wife. It is very normal for this to happen, but why this happens is not well understood by dads.
Dad's at this time often hit the "exhaustion point." The unpredictability of the nights is usually the toughest. Not getting a continual night's sleep leaves many new fathers feel spent and fatigued.
Many new fathers comment on how wonderful and difficult that first month is. Your baby is still small and helpless but by the second month you may feel a difference as you hold him. He may seem to be more of a person.
The good news -- fathers have become much more loving, friendly and caring parents to their children. The bad news is that many fathers are still so intensely focused on their work -- and children -- that they are letting their marriages wither on the vine.
Becoming a father and a parent can be a transformational process for a man. When a man becomes a father, through loving his child, partner and family, he comes in contact with a deep paternal masculinity. When a child enters a man's life, a new depth of feeling and emotion are awakened within him.
As parents, time is our most valuable resource, our most precious commodity. Most important, when it comes to your children, finding the time for them will not only benefit their development but, particularly for us fathers, can make all the difference about how we feel about what is of real value and meaning in life.
