New Dad Bravely Reminds Us That Mums Need All The Sleep

A dad has courageously taken to imgur to remind people everywhere that new mums need a lot of sleep. In what might have been one of his less-bright ideas, he made his point by sharing a photo of his sleeping wife on the internet.

Imgur user avidclimber snapped the picture of his snoozing wife with the caption, “After winning a battle with testicular cancer last year we finally got our first born son. <3 *pro-tip* Real men take care of their baby while mommy takes as many naps as she needs. She’s been through an ordeal! Suck it up guys and be her dream husband!”

Ohhhhh you’re gonna be in so much trouble when she wakes up and sees this, man.

That’s what we thought.

As lovely as this was, there appears to be some major sucking up to be done now.

While the new dad received a lot of support for overcoming testicular cancer and manning up to the responsibilities of fatherhood, other dads jumped in to remind him that this is what he should be doing anyway.

“You don’t have to be a real man to take care of your kids. It’s simply being a man,” mrweekend wrote.

“That’s what dads do. Support your wife, and take care of kids. Mom and Dad are a team. It definitely feels special, but it’s expected,” added FredaFelcher.

Of course, there is always “that guy”. We can’t have a fun discussion about anything related to babies without “that guy”.

“Your baby has got some red cheeks… might want to make sure the little fella isn’t either too hot, or getting an imbalance of vitamins,” advised AllFatherOdinBorson

The new dad was forced to defend himself after other users  questioned his potentially fatal decision to share an image of his wife sleeping with the whole internet.

“She’s still gonna kill you for sharing this pic of her sleeping though,” wrote DeadnCold.

He replied that he showed the photo to her before posting it, although there is no word if she said it was “fine” and he believed her.

This genuinely sweet photo comes after popular Mum Blogger Sophie Cachia made an impassioned plea for dad’s to capture these moments of mums with their kids.

“We spend days capturing beautiful moments of you and the kids. So whenever you see one of us with our babies, a beautiful candid moment, take the bloody god damn photo,” Cachia said.

Even if we’re sleeping!
