Rise, Dad-to-Dad :: Baby Bonding #7 Capitalize on the odd moments, the 5 minute increments in between the busy-ness of the day. Even if you work out of the home - or keep long office hours in the home - never underestimate the power of Daddy-bonding with your child even if you have little time. When taking a shower or getting ready, snuggle your baby down safely in a stroller or seat and let them be part of your routine. Talk to them through the soothing sounds of the shower, look at them in the mirror as you shave, give them a low-down on your day, ask them to help you pick or clothing. This simple ritual helps build love, trust, and brain power as they converse in their own way with you. And you get to step out the door in a better mood. - Leigh
