Agreed. This is true. No other mammal is this heartless to their babies. If youve got grandma there, or a long term loving nanny, that does help. But it would be best if its mama or Daddy full time with that little one.
Totally agree-fortunately for me, one of my aunts-a teacher-lived just up the road from me and had a late-in-life cub a month before mine was born-she and I shared a babysitter who was a neighbor of hers-another teacher with grown kids who didn’t want/need to work for a school anymore. She watched the cubs when my aunt or I went out for grown-up evening with hubby-and when she and I went back into the workforce-when the cubs were about 2 1/2 years old, the neighbor lady took on the role of nanny for us both-it was like having the cubs homeschooled before age 5-she was willing to do just what we did when home-from simple reading to Spanish as a 2nd language-a family tradition and common practice in W Texas. She remained their nanny until both our girls were 10 years old.
No one should entrust their precious cub to strangers when so young-it is unnatural...
Fixed it. Daddy didn't carry the baby in his womb and Daddy didn't create the biological tie that only biological infants and mothers can possibly experience. Singing to mommy's belly bump is not the same.
An involved Dad is essential to the mom and greatly superior to any other male interacting with the infant, but he is no substitute for the biological mom. The dad's best role is supporting the mom until the infant is gradually weaned and is toddling around. Dad's role and attachmeng grows over the months and years.
