In almost every relationship I've seen, when a baby comes, the mama tends to do a little bit more of the child raising and care than the new dad.

Not sure why; that's just what I see. While I have some ideas (maybe many men have a harder learning curve, maybe some women try too hard to be everything to the baby, and so on) I have no study to back me up. What I do know it how easy it is to get frustrated with a male partner after the baby arrives. One thing that might help, while your partner catches up to your baby skill level, is to look back at the good times. During your pregnancy, jot down all the nice things your partner does for you. Take pictures of the baby toys he buys, the flowers he brings you, keep any litle love notes, and create a memory scrapbook. Once the baby comes, and you're tired, and maybe forgetting why you ever got with this guy in the first place, you can take out your book of love memories and go back over what makes you love your fellow. If you're looking for some other ways to get your partner to help out more, or maybe you just want to connect better, read the following:
