My paternity leave has timed perfectly with the snow and ice. Being homebound with a newborn is more bearable when I’m snowed-in anyway.

Making a looping lullaby box

My wife and I are expecting our second baby in the new year. Our first, now a toddler, loved his Ewan The Dream Sheep at night, especially its gentle harp lullaby music, but the short duration (20 minutes) meant we were frequently restarting the music to help him fully drift off.

A few notes on fatherhood after my first week:

  • Even though I was warned I still took sleep for granted.
  • Changing a dirty nappy really is no big deal. But he soils them almost as quickly as I change them.
  • It’s impossible to have too many vests or baby-gros.
  • Ditto nappies and water wipes. The magic nappy bin is my friend.
  • Muslins, cloths or wipes must be within reach at all times or else.
  • For now he really does just want to feed, nap and poo all day long.
  • My wife does the feeding so I do the housework. And quite right too.
  • Leaving the house to drive to the supermarket was momentous.
  • He may have irrevocably changed our lives and we may never sleep uninterrupted again but he’s worth it.

Introducing my son, Henry Frost. I’m a very proud dad.
