Whatever handle he has acquired, know that guys are different breed; ever heard of the "Mars/Venus" analogy? It's true — they come form a different planet and circle the earth way differently than moms.

Take this new dad reflection for instance:
"I am a baby-feeding, diaper-changing ninja Personally, I have Mr. T to thank for making it through the first two months: "Be cool, fool" became my mantra. Everyone talks about the first two months as being the most difficult-and it's true. But I evolved from being a night time zombie that was slow to wake into… a baby-feeding, diaper-changing ninja. Essentially, it's about learning to be functional while dealing with sleep deprivation -- no mean feat."

No doubt that new moms need to be super supported, so do dads! By and large they are also doing their very best and deserve a big high five for effort alone.
