Dad Pad logo

The DadPad app is an easy-to-use, freely downloadable resource for new dads and dads-to-be in the Hull, East Riding, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire areas. Packed with relevant information, as well as details on local support groups and service providers it aims to provide new fathers with guidance on how to develop the mindset, confidence and practical skills needed to meet their babies' physical and emotional needs.

Building a strong attachment will not only enable dads to better enjoy their new role but also contribute towards positive long-term social, health and educational outcomes for their babies. Crucially, the app also provides dads with guidance on how to support and seek help (when needed) for their partners and themselves as they adjust to their new roles, and cope with the physical and emotional strains that this can place on individuals and relationships

The app covers topics such as:

- Feeding, holding and changing your baby

- Surviving without sleep and coping with crying

- Getting to know your baby

- Home safety and first aid

- Looking after yourself and supporting your partner

The app can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play
