This Dad Who Gets Up With the Baby Is Guaranteed to Make You Melt

Awww! 29

Middle-of-the-night feedings are one of those things that usually don't last long, in the grand scheme of parenting, but feel like they last forever. Most of us develop the skill of feeding a baby more or less in our sleep...and we learn exactly how little sleep we need to function when we have babies that are up three times a night for 15 months. Not that I had one of those or anything.

If you're lucky enough to have a supportive partner, you quickly learn that any love note he may have written to you pales in comparison to the words "you sleep, I'll take care of the baby." That's what makes this hot dad in the video below hot...he doesn't even check his wife for fake-sleeping (come on, we've all done it) or attempt to nudge her awake before getting out of bed and scooping up the baby from his cradle, heating up a bottle, and feeding the adorable little punkin', cuddling all the while. Watch below and see if you're not a little googly-eyed after.

For most of the Hot Dads Doing Chores episodes, the guys have been attractive and shirtless eye candy. Let's face it: this guy could look like a cross between Shrek and a garden toad and he would still be scorching hot in this video. Why? Because pretty much nothing makes us get all gooey toward our man as when he's gentle and nurturing with our babies. When my husband soothes our little guy through a tantrum or listens to our daughter's troubles, I just melt. Because no matter what he looks like, nothing is sexier than a guy who is a good dad and a good partner.

My husband doesn't have breasts so the feeding is all on me. I'm fine with it, the only time my rambunctious and independent little one feels like snuggling is in the middle of the night so I love that time.

My husband and I would take turns during the night  feedings since we formula fed. that way we both got equal sleep, until he woke up at 4am to go to work. He is extremely helpful with the kids, I love it.

I think I would be heartbroken if I missed a night feeding!!! 18 months old and they've all been 100% mine. Hubs doesn't seem to mind :) I love having one aspect of my child's care that no one but me can do, this time will be so short. They grow way too fast :(

..I breast fed and my husband still got up , got the baby brought her to me and made sure I didnt sleep on her head. I just never have been able to get up at night before or after the baby. I was not meant to be a single mother lol. Breast feeding doesnt mean dads cant help. It was awesome to have him get her and put her back when she was done. ..

I guess it really depends on the family. Some mothers dont mind the dad not getting up. My cousin said he worked she stayed home so she should get up so he can rest for the next day. Lol it was funny to tell him what my hubby went through

Yes, let's all piss our pants for a guy doing the same things moms do every's 2013, enough already.

Yeah I have to agree with lisakphillips.  I think it's really sad how many men don't pitch in, and it's something that seems to be further encouraged by making it such a big deal when they do.  It takes 2 to have children and should have 2 to raise them.  I'm so lucky to hear "He pooped...  I got it!"

I appreciate the fact that my partner does his share of things but if he didn't that wouldn't be ok just because so many men don't. It shouldn't be normal for the dad to do less because he's the dad, unless he works and she doesn't and then maybe the child care should be shifted slightly towards mum but not completely.

My husband wakes up, gets the baby for me and while I BF he makes a SNS (I have to supplement at the breast). Up until recently she slept in bed with me, but he would get out of bed to hold her while I readjusted in bed and then put her down beside me. Now he gets her from her crib, brings her to me, makes a SNS, then puts her back to bed. I appreciate his help greatly, but it isn't like he is doing anything super human. He is doing what every dad SHOULD be doing. I couldn't even finish this video. The guy is annoying in his poor acting. Those fake yawns were SO DRAMATIC.

Yes, I was lucky, we took turns.
