Have you ever wondered what life will be like once you are father? The truth is that no matter how hard we prepare in advance for it, fatherhood is just going to be a surprise, advises candid father and childcare expert Marc Sporn. Knowing you are ready, however, can give you that bode of confidence moving into the future, naturally for something that you can only be as ready as possible for; something that requires you actually experiencing it so you can get vetted first.
Diapers and More
Few men are prepared for changing poopy diapers. In fact, few men are prepared to console a crying baby either. Good thing for you there is YouTube… a free video file sharing website where you can watch tons of tutorials on how you can properly and safely change a diaper and how you can console a crying baby without making the situation worse.
One reason why married couples who are raising children fight so often is because they are not getting enough sleep. Now logic tells us that if you are both working jobs that you share nighttime duties to tend to baby.

Ah the sexless nature of a marriage that occurs when babies are born. The mom is still adjusting and getting back to normal. The newborn demands around the clock attention. And neither of you are getting that innate sexual stress release you are accustomed to. Get used to it, this period can last as long as year.
Be prepared to test every boundary of your marriage, especially if this is your first child. It will never be easy, but the reward is seeing a little version of yourself grow up and enter the world. And that, dear readers, is priceless.
