It hurt when someone commented I should let the mother handle the crying baby.
Being proud that I am a hands-on Dad and make good logical decision most of the time, that hurt my pride. Why would I not handle my children as well or even better? If the father is always there for the children, the bond with his children is never less than that of the mother's.
Of course, there is no shame in letting the mother share the burden. But it is hurtful to say I can't do it.
