I felt a bond with my son pretty quickly after becoming pregnant. With each doctor's visit, ultrasound, and tiny kick, that bond grew, so that by the time I gave birth, I felt like I'd known him forever.

Believe me, there is nothing sweeter than the loving look in your husband's eyes as he bonds with your baby. Here are 9 activities to help grow the father/baby bond. - By Becka Robinson
