So This Is What They Meant By 3-In-A-Bed!

Bad Dadu - 20th Sep 16

If sleep was a commodity on the stock exchange of my life then it’s value has plummeted through the floor since I became a Dad. I used to fixate upon getting eight hours of sleep a night. This allocation has now been reduced to around...

So…what’s it like being a dad?

Bradley Gerrard - 16th Sep 16

The benefit of knowing someone who has experience of something you’re about to go through is usually a fantastic thing. They can answer all your questions and reassure you it’ll be fine if you try to do this or avoid that. But a recent...

The Dad Bod – what they DON’T tell you

Jamie Day - 9th Sep 16

A year or so ago the world went trending crazy for the ‘dad bod’. It was all very sudden, after a couple of supposed Hollywood heartthrobs such as Chris Pratt made it acceptable (slash sexy?) to carry a spare tyre round the ol’ midriff....

Do I Want to be A Hipster Dad?

David Coppi - 25th Aug 16

As a new dad, I desperately want to be cool in my daughter’s eyes. Sure, she’s only nine months old but there will come a time when she’ll work out what sort of dad I am. At the moment I’m the skinny jeans, faded...

BLW or NIMK

Ben Wiffen - 3rd Aug 16

Baby Led Weaning is so hip right now it’d be a sin to do anything else. It’s champions are one step away from being the new ‘Breast Milk Nazis’, shovelling the dogma down your throat like the purées it’s proponents are so against. So...

Why Is Fatherhood Seen as a Part-Time Job?

Hadley Coull - 4th Jul 16

Last year, I took seven months off work to raise my daughter. Apparently, I’m one of the 2% of Dads who take such extended paternity leave here in the UK, and the first within my organisation to do so. I had a marvellous time....

You’re exceptional but not the exception

Bradley Gerrard - 22nd Jul 16

It’s common to think everyone else around you with children is dealing with it all so much better. Why is it you imagine they must be coping with those multiple wake-ups with ease and grace compared to your bitchy altercations with one another at...

A new world: A letter to my daughter

Bradley Gerrard - 24th Jun 16

I’ve woken up this morning to a country I don’t recognise, my love. One which has voted to leave the European Union in the belief it can be better outside. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement but an even more overwhelming emotion is...

The 1st Haircut

Jack Lemon - 21st Jun 16

By all accounts my son has a fairly impressive head of hair. When wet it can reach as far as the middle of his back. But things were getting out of hand. I’m all for the ‘surfer’ dude look but the boy has to...

Is it A Boy or a Girl?

BonjourMini - 28th Jun 16

We decided that we would go with the surprise option on whether we would find out the gender of Mini or not. So here I pose the question, will it be a ‘Girl Mini’ or a ‘Boy Mini’ and the responses we get to...

All-too-absent Father

Steve Gray - 18th Jun 16

  19 is a great age to make a career choice!  You’re young, fearless and full of ambition!  But what happens later on, when you’re life and circumstances have changed?  When you’re no longer just looking-out for number 1?  How do we cope when we have...

Father’s day: What I really want…..

Simon Hooper - 18th Jun 16

Once again Father’s day is rapidly approaching and mums and children are scrambling to pull together ideas on what to get the man in their lives. This can be a difficult proposition. I can’t speak for all men but I know that I’m not...

Baby on a Plane

Ben Wiffen - 25th Jun 16

As a younger man, I vowed never to take any future children on a plane. My wife and I lived in Amsterdam for three years before coming back to start a family and we flew often for weekend getaways or to see family in...

The Delights of Being a Daddy

The Dad - 19th Jun 16

It’s sometimes easy to forget how great it is to be a parent, especially when your beautiful child has screamed and cried for the last 6 hours and you’ve not slept properly in weeks. So I thought I’d get these down to remind me...
