Dads agree. Three in four dads we surveyed say their lives began when they became a dad. This article highlights research on how having dad present changes a baby and how scientists think the presence of a newborn causes physical changes that speeds men along the path to dad-hood. This article was featured in Baby Steps, a ZERO TO THREE newsletter for parents and caregivers. Each issue offers science-based information on a topic of interest to parents and caregivers of young children—from sleep to challenging behaviors, and everything in between.
