Thread: Men who had children post SCI

    Men who had children post SCI

    For men that had children after their SCI I was just wondering how involved were you with helping your wife with raising your child/children? What type of things would you do and how did you help your wife?

    I was Mr. mom for the first two years. I did it all; changed diapers, baths, cooking, shopping etc. We had a great time.

    No limitations here, with a T12 injury.

    Never washed so many bottles in my life as I am these days.

    ANY involvement you have in helping out is better than nothing!

    I changed maybe 10 diapers, if that. What I was good at was getting my boy to sleep. If he were in his crib I would rub his back and sing to him. If we were out and he needed a nap, he'd lay on my lab and I would rock him to sleep (push/pull on 1 wheel).

    Just taking that little bit of responsibility helped my wife tremendously, and my boy stil likes to snuggle with Daddy and he's 8.

    Today we're past naps, and I help coach his baeball team. I'm not good at throwing, but I can still verbally help the kids out.

    Sometimes, "just being there" is all you need to do!

    We had two girls and I'm home with them, my partner's career being way better than mine. So lots of involvement!
