It is not only the wife’s duty to soothe a crying baby. Sometimes these little princes and princesses wants to hear your own version of lullaby and at other times, they love to spend time with you smiling and laughing.
From my observations, Some of them eats better and more when Daddy feeds them.
Please stop denying them of this Father-child cuddling and relationship.
Please kindly develop the attitude of carrying your little ones at least once in two days and gradually you will bond better.
