When dh and I had our first child together he was very hands off for a while. Until I blew up one day and asked him what his deal was. He said he felt disconnected because I seemed to know how to do it all and he didn't. So I had to step back and let him do a few more things that I didn't know I was selfish about doing myself.

And ditto whoever said the thing about men interacting with the babies when they are more active and alert. Men like instant gratification. So when a one week old doesn't respond to them it's not as rewarding as the three month old who might smile.
