..so many ways!

I think baby/Dad time is SO important.. especially if you, Mom, are the one that stays at home with the baby the most during the day.. then you have to realize that baby needs one on one time with JUST Dad, and sometimes that means MOM not being around, no offense Mom :)

Some ways I think can help Dad & baby bond are..

- bathtime, let Dad do it all a few nights week!
- book time before bed.. let him read a story he likes to baby
- have a girls night out and let THEM stay in :)

Those are just a few ideas.. but above all.. try to let Dad be alone with baby from time to time.. even though you think you are letting them have time to themselves, sometimes it's hard for Mom not to "butt" in.. which is common and normal.. but alone time with Dad and baby gives them a chance to be themselves around one another, if that makes sense and it typically gives Dad a confidence boost!

    On the weekends my hubby spends as much time with Ashley as he can because he has been working out of town for the last month or so during the week so I have been kind of at home with her at that time. At least once a month or so, he will take Ashley to go run a couple of errands for I can get some house work done, or take or outside and play in the grass for a bit which she loves. Even gave him the idea about reading a book to her at night before she goes to sleep when she gets bigger.
