As any sort of gift is not going to help you at 2am of a morning.
    Uh... My husband does this stuff because he impregnated me. It's not 'nice' of him to do that, or a loving gesture. It's his duty as a father.

    For me being given a ring was a lovely gesture so that I had something physical that I could hold when my boy wasn't close to me. That was thoughtful in my books because it wasn't required or expected of him. Raising your child in my books isn't something the mother should be grateful for. It's just what he should DO.

    Definitely. I don't think of it as DH 'helping me' with the baby, any more than I think of it as 'helping him with the baby' when I do anything with DD.

    And I'm sure most of the dads who do buy presents don't give their wives the choice of a present OR doing their share of the baby/ household duties.

    Default Re: A Push Present

    i received a ring on the birth of both my boys. Each had their birthstone in it and it will be passed on to them when im gone. i love having jewellery that i can explain the meaning of. My husband and i both worked hard to prepare for our babies and he is proud and appreciative of me sharing my body to give him 2 beautiful children. He does not do emotions well so i know its him saying thanks lol

    .

    I don't think Mummy2Lilly is saying that they offer. But most fathers DO go back to work after baby is born as in the next day my husband did and i can tell you having him helping me at 2am in the morning would have been a life saver but of course that couldnt be done because he had early starts. We also had a 18 month old to. Yes it is a fathers duty of care to help but at the end of the day being told to go have a sleep or go sink in a deep hot bath you say it is not Nice of him what world are you from? Some parents do find it nice of there husbands offer to care for the baby while you have a bath or sleep or even go and visit a friend on your OWN and they may even find it loving that they put there wifes before the baby and want to help around the house. Everyone is different. it could be little things as well that can make someone happy with having dinner pulled out lunch made, Washing done everyone is different some people like to think they get presents for "pushing out a baby" which is natural for women it is just another excuse i believe for women to get another present. I am not just sticking up for mummy 2 lilly but i have noticed other people say what mummy 2 lilly has and have been told they should do that etc i am agreeing with all of them. Also someone said he impregnated me umm it takes two to tango

    Default A Push Present

    I dont see the problem with it. As someone mentioned earlier in the thread people give gifts when people are sick well I have to agree childbirth exceeds any sickness I have ever had... And it depends on individuals financial situation as well

    Push present! It sounds so ludicrus!

    What do I think of it? It's a present, a material way of expressing ones love, pride, gratitude, etc etc If someone wants to do this with a material present, or just verbally with a simple 'I love you', 'I'm so proud of you', 'Thank you'. Either way someone does this is each to their own and is a lovely expression of your feelings at such a time.

    So long as the feeling behind it isn't lost and its a choice rather than an expected obligation, but I'd be just as happy with my baby in my arms and a man by my side.

    I would never ever expect nor ask for anything. Wouldn't reject a surprise present either though

    I think the name of it is a bit odd but I certainly wouldn't have objected. I got diddly squat from df after my 64 hour labour with katelyn. *hmph*

    Oh wait... I got a baby. Spose that'll do. Lol.
