Welcome to projectfather!
Hello, thanks for visiting this site. I guess you’re anxious to learn a little bit about who I am, why I started this blog, what’s in it for you.
I’m Balint, a new father living in the north of Switzerland who is the lucky one to have a young lady, my first daughter Amelia. At the time of this writing, she’s turned recently 10 months old, and therefore I’m literally a new father.
Fatherhood is not a piece of cake. This insight I learned slowly but surely. Even though it’s usually the mum who takes care of most of the baby stuff, we as fathers can and I believe should assist our other half in different ways. Mums can get overwhelmed and in the end fathers might become the target for the remaining surplus of energy mums might have. By assisting in cooking, playing with our child, changing sometimes the diapers can give the needed insights into the world of mums, to really see things through their eyes. I have gone through a full immersion recently by actually being home alone with her, being responsible for my daughter for a day. There is no better way to appreciate the level of help children need and to understand what mums do every day. This one day of victory has also earned me some other good points with my partner.
As first time fathers we go through the ups and downs of becoming true fathers who take the responsibilities. In this blog you get to read about some of my insights based on lessons learned on upbringing, on how to get more sleep during nights, what gears your family might need to make your life easier, and many more.
