HANDS- ON dads are less likely to suf­fer baby blues, a study claims.

Re­searchers found that more par­tic­i­pa­tion by new fa­thers in par­ent­ing – such as help­ing with nappy changes – is good for their men­tal health and can ben­e­fit the whole fam­ily’s well­be­ing. Dr Ola­jide Bamishig­bin, au­thor of the US study, said: “Fa­thers who are more in­volved may feel more com­pe­tent and sat­is­fied in their role.”

The find­ings are in Fron­tiers in Psy­chi­a­try.
