Sometimes I just feel like we treat our men like children who need to be coddled. They're grown and should be able to understand that "making them feel special" is not a top priority when baby comes.
I personally, in my own opinion, agree with you. I noticed that it's more of a faith based site. Which is fine. I have many friends who follow a certain "biblical" aspect and take this whole heartedly. Works for them. I'm of the same faith, but not into this personally. My husband is a grown man, not the newborn. He's more than able to fend for himself for 6 weeks, if not, well it was going to be a long 6 weeks
