Where are the fathers?
A study conducted by Nosiboo amongst 5685 parents from 6 European countries showed differences in the mother’s and father’s engagement in taking care of their child’s hygiene.
There are countries in which hygienic responsibilities are usually divided between both parents and countries in which rather a mom-domination can be found.
- Spain turned out to be a country where the most parents (61%) take care of their child’s hygiene together.
- Hungary (59%) and France (58%) also lead the way when it comes to proportionate contribution in daily hygienic activities with the child.
- In Italy and Germany the results are similar, close to 50%, with a slight predominance of mother care.
- Poland remains a country where rather the mother is responsible for taking care of the child (57%).
Since dads are so important, why do we hear so little about them?
The communication addressed to parents very often focuses on mothers solely, not taking fathers into consideration. We believe that all the parents are heroes on equal terms.
We asked our friend dad-blogger how he feels about the ubiquitous communication aimed at mothers.
“More and more the SAHD (Stay at Home Dad) community is excluded from brand communication when marketing baby and child related products to parents. Society has changed along with family dynamics and if brands wish to target caregivers with their marketing messages they need to consider what a modern family and dad looks like. Dads both hetero and homesexual care for their children full time while their partners go off to work. There just isn’t enough inclusion and a male voice is often hard to find in parenting guides. We started our DadiDeal blog with this in mind and the response from male primary caregivers has been overwhelming.“Claude from @fouriefamcam
Modern “dadding” is very important for us, since the idea of Nosiboo came from two young engineer fathers whose families had to deal with sleepless nights after their infants came on board.
After two years of researching, developing, and testing prototypes, these talented two created the final design of Nosiboo – revolutionary nasal aspirators, child-friendly and comfortable for parents at the same time.
Since the beginning, Nosiboo has not only been a “mom’s choice”. It’s a “mom’s and dad’s choice”.
