Instead of Mommy being the only one helping with the care of the little one at night, Daddy or other adults in the house can help too. When the baby wakes up to feed, Daddy can first check the baby's diaper, change if necessary, and then pass the baby to Mommy. This being made a routine will make night care much easier on the mother but also provide for additional bonding for the father and child, or a more balanced plate of responsibilities in general.
