Celebrating The Voices of Fatherhood at Bump, Baby & You

Happy Father’s Day to all of our lovely daddy followers!

Here at Bump, Baby & You, we love to give daddies a voice. It’s safe to say that across social media, blogging and other communications, the perspective of the mother tends to dominate. However, we’re really pleased to see that daddy bloggers are gaining more and more traction and popularity, and we just LOVE reading what they have to say about pregnancy, birth, parenthood, and all the nitty gritty parts of parenting.

We discussed how men are more likely to keep their thoughts to themselves and are unlikely to be as open about their feelings here in our blog about men’s health – of course, this shows when you look at the demographics of bloggers, writers, Youtubers, in fact parent influencers in general. In recent decades, the stereotype of men needing to remain ‘strong and silent’ and take a backseat in parenting has diminished, and in recent years, daddies everywhere have been finding their voice to share their parenting experiences, tips with other parents, and worked hard to make the voices of the daddy community heard! There is still an imbalance, but we’re getting there.

Daddies, your voice matters just as much. Don’t be afraid to speak out & share!

If you’re interested in reading more daddy content, you’re in the right place, because we have some AMAZING daddy blogs on our site, and we’re incredibly proud to showcase them today. Thank you, guys – your hard work and relatable content really helps make the Bump, Baby & You community what is is today; relatable, inclusive and supportive.

Here’s our showcase of Bump, Baby & You daddy guest bloggers!

Neil, the star of Team DILF, brings bags of humour and realism to the parenting community! His way with words is sure to make you need to dash to the loo from laughing so hard, we love how he sees the funny side of every parenting quandary.

Isablog

Ross, the start of Isablog, is another funny bloke – I think this is a running theme for daddy bloggers so far – as well as being deeply insightful and refreshingly honest about his experience of male Postnatal Depression. His support of his wife on her breastfeeding journey has also been lovely to watch.

Interested in making your voice heard, daddies?

We’d love to hear off more daddies, and we are constantly on the lookout for guest blogger content. If you’re feeling inspired by our daddy bloggers and ready to unleash your inner thoughts as a daddy, here are a few top tips…

  • Set up a social media account to document your experience. Instagram, a Facebook page, Twitter and Pinterest are the common choices. Many choose to set up a website (WordPress is the most popular choice). You can even run a site alongside a social media account, and post blog posts from your site onto your social media.
  • Interact and engage with other parents. Get talking, discussing, (respectfully) debating. This will help to inspire your writing and in turn, attract people who want to know what you have to say!
  • Get your blog content out there – that’s where we can help. Email [email protected] to discuss our guest blogging opportunities. Our Facebook blogging network is a thriving community of parent bloggers who are all incredibly helpful.

As a daddy, do you feel that your perspective matters? If not, why? Share with us in the comments!

Love from Katie. Xx
