Two-thirds of new dads feel ‘Left out’ in the early days of parenting

Two-thirds of new dads admit to feeling ‘left out’ in the early days of parenting.The study of 1,015 UK parents of children aged six months to five years found 69 percent of fathers only felt they became a ‘true’ parent after sharing feeding responsibilities with mom.In comparison, 22 percent of new mothers already felt that way the moment they saw their positive pregnancy test.A further 66 percent of dads wanted to feel more involved and responsible in the early days.While seven in 10 felt a real sense of relief when they were given the chance to help and support their partner in a more ‘hands-on’ way.
