Young dads find it difficult to ask for help, particularly where their partners can become expert in the practicalities quite quickly and they don’t. [The DadPad] is about Dads being prepared for some of that tension and strain of being a new parent, but without being overwhelmed and knowing that it’s not just mums who can access the help and advice that’s available, even if they don’t live with their partner.
The DadPad gives support to new fathers who can often feel left out and unable to help when they’re needed most, and this can put a strain on both parents.
I was a bit scared when we found out we were having a baby, obviously happy, but a bit scared and in the beginning I was a bit clueless. The child development part is my favourite bit, but there’s things in there, like things about mental health, that I didn’t know about and that I didn’t know you needed to know about.
