By  •  News

dad sleep-over

For most American fathers, it’s a no-brainer: you stay with your wife in the hospital the night your kid is born. Usually it means pushing a couple of chairs together to stretch out or sleeping sitting up. But across the pond, England has had a long-standing struggle with new dads and their desires to be involved in their children’s first nights.

AND it’s not even Halloween. What do you do? What can you do?
