We are seeing an unprecedented rise of women in America; for every two years that graduate college this year, there will be three women. Because of the great rise of layoffs and the recession of the expensive man, now for the first time in history, there are more women in the workforce than men. And in 39 of 50 biggest urban centers in America, women in the age 22-30 bracket are making more money than their male peers. So it's not surprising if the wife is working and the husband isn't, or the wife is making more money than the husband. We are seeing a dramatic shift in gender roles because of the rise of women. In fact, guess how many marriages have the wife making more money than the husband? Forty percent. Isn't that shocking? That's new labor statistics that just came out. Does that mean it's unsafe or unhealthy for the baby? No. We all feminine and masculine energy in us and a dad can be a great caregiver for a child, of course. It depends on the guy, just like it would depend on the woman. Not every woman is wired to mother. Not every dad is wired to mother. So look your lifestyle. Look at if he's really prepared 24/7. If it is a newborn, leave lots of breast milk in the fridge.
