TackleNappy are extremely proud to announce our judging panel for the TackleNappy Dad of the Year Award 2012.
The TackleNappy Dad of the Year Award is something we have been discussing for some time. We really wanted to do this right because it's a topic that we're both passionate about. We understand we're a small voice in a sea of thousands. We know the award we've created won't make the 6 o'clock news or A Current Affair, and we know the winner isn't going to make the front of Time Magazine or drink champagne out of a diamond encrusted trophy. Really, this isn't a competition. What we're trying to do is raise awareness of the important role dads play in this whole parenting experience. We want to recognise one awesome Aussie dad in particular, but at the same time acknowledge all dads for their efforts. If we manage to get people to stop and think about the contribution their husband, son, son-in-law or their own father has made, then we will consider the TackleNappy Dad of the Year award a success.
At TackleNappy we're seeing a trend in the type of questions coming our way. One of the most common is regarding sleep, how do we get baby to sleep and catch up on sleep ourselves. I've written this article in response to Clinton, a friend of TackleNappy, who recently asked us this very question.
