To reassure your husband, let him know he’s doing a good job and trust him—if you’re nervous too, it’s only going to add to his fears.
When your man sees your baby and holds him for the first time, the bulk of the worry disappears.
He'll soon start to realize how tough babies are. Still, it is helpful to find a couple of ways to hold the baby that are comfortable. The nurses, or any experienced parents, can show you a few ways to hold him so that both you and the baby feel secure. It’s OK to have a “spotter” the first time you hold her just to be sure. Soon, the instincts kick in, and the worry will be gone.
