Confinement Daddy

Most Asian women engage a confinement nanny during their baby's 1st month.

I've got a confinement daddy instead.

Ian has taken leave to do the honours. Changing diapers, bathing baby Daen, bottle-feeding and burping him in the wee hours of the morning.

During the first few days when I was having difficulty walking, he was literally at my beck and call - can you get this, get that, do this, do that.

He's able to spend much more time with Vera as well, just like back in the days when he was a Stay-Home Dad.

It's nice to have him step in during this time when I'm totally out-of-action. I guess that's what team mates are for.
