We hear so much about the incredible selflessness and love of mothers that sometimes we tend to forget other, equally important person in child's life - dad.

Instagram account "Don't Forget Dads" celebrates fatherhood by sharing adorable images and stories about dads, their love and their impact on the little ones.

The idea behind the account is not only to showcase the beauty of fatherly love, but also to encourage all fathers to be involved in the lives of kids from a really young age. "I don't babysit, I parent." And this is exactly what every one of these amazing men does.

This is so funny! I bathed all my children in the tub with me. My first kiddo, one day when she was about six months old or so, she suddenly got a very serious look on her face for a few seconds and suddenly a turd floated up between us! I don't know who was more surprised, her or me. :-)

The Entire Universe Conspired To Help Me Find You

The Entire Universe Conspired To Help Me Find You

I changed my life, left everything I loved and knew and moved across the country to find this man, I'm so thankful now I can see that all the bumpy paths in our lives all played a part in helping us be ready for each other when we found one another. I wouldn't have imagined that 2 years ago I would be here, sharing the most incredible profound love with the man of my heart, welcoming our child, and carefully creating our own family that I had only dreamed of. _ We survived 73 hours of excruciating intense labor that resulted in complications that we had hoped would never happen, he learned my contractions before they came and experienced every painful one with me, he never left my side. We endured the hardest and most challenging thing I've ever experienced in my life, together. And it made us closer and more in love. I'll never forget looking into his eyes when we first heard Wolfe cry and I saw something I can't even put into words happen. His previous sense of self was shed and a father was born, and our hearts were finally fully open to experience what I see now as true love. _ I love this man, I love where we've been together and where we are going. He is the only person who belongs next to me, infinitely. These two are in my veins, heart and soul.

It Was Like Riding Waves Of An Ocean

It Was Like Riding Waves Of An Ocean

Trusting my body and my baby, I recognized when a fearful thought would arise and chose to change it. Absolutely it was incredibly hard, but I was strong - stronger than maybe some skeptics had believed when they found out I was doing a home birth. And sincerely, people's doubts never offended me. I just felt sad that they didn't realize the full feminine strength that all women posses. I got to experience it in all its fullness yesterday, and my reward was birthing, not only a baby, but also a mom. _ Bonnie started letting me know she wanted to come meet the world at 5:00am on Monday, January 2, and my astounding husband and mother helped me labor until about 12:45pm when I got in our bathtub to push. My little sweet sister joined us then to squeeze my hand and help document the journey. Our midwife, Emily, from Lovers Lane Birth Center, was calming and made me feel strong and safe. The last push was something I'll never forget - a defining moment in my life. She came out into the water at 1:59pm and she was perfect. _ Ben and I got a moment alone with this new little angel and I fell even more in love with my sweet husband. I'm reliving yesterday in my head over and over again. It was amazing, and if you are at all interested in a home or natural birth, I'm thrilled to help provide any insight or resources. _ Our little Birdie is 7.5lbs and 20in long with hair already long enough for pigtails. She pooped on me three times in the first two hours of her life, so we know she's for sure Ben's daughter...

Come on. It's great that you had a perfect birth at home, but it's a bit demeaning to say that people expressing doubts about home birth just "didn't realize the full feminine strength that all women posses". My son didn't breathe at birth and needed care. I have several friends whose babies were saved by an emergency intervention when nothing wrong was expected. I'm guessing home birth is fantastic if everything goes right... but birth is unpredictable. Things can go catastrophically wrong very fast and as much as the hospital isn't glamorous, it's still a very safe place to be in case of emergency for the mother or the baby.

Number two is looking great, we have a good flow of blood to the cord, everything crossed things will stay this way for our next scan in 3 weeks. I could burst with pride.

There Are Times In Fatherhood (and Motherhood) Where You Will Simply Lose Your Shit

There Are Times In Fatherhood (and Motherhood) Where You Will Simply Lose Your Shit

I'm completely serious. If you haven't yet, it is coming. If you have, then you know what I'm talking about. You're exhausted, pulled in too many directions, and pushed too far. It usually builds up with lack of sleep, always being needed, life stressors, and trying to force things. _ The bad part about losing your shit is that it makes everyone sad. Sadness is part of life though, darling. We can't be happy 24/7. We need to learn and have growth. _ Like dad (and mom) guilt isn't bad enough though, a daddy (mommy) temper tantrum is great at adding extra. But once the dust settles, you have a good yell or cry or both, and good things can actually come from it. Shedding all that frustration, hurt, anger, etc. can help you get to the core of the issue. It gives you clarity to see things from a different perspective and to build the pieces back up to be better than before. _ I'm not telling you to go lose your shit for the sake of losing your shit, I'm just saying that it happens and it's not the end of the world, you're still a good father (mother), and there's always a silver lining. _ Take a deep breath, try to take some time to yourself to quietly process (when you can), learn from it, and try something different! _ Parenthood is the ultimate survival mode, problem-solving, multi-tasking job there is. Figure out what works for your family even if it seems completely unconventional. And be willing to leave some wiggle room for adjustments and change. If things are really feeling out of sorts, it may be best to take a step back and just go with the flow for a little bit. Say yes a lot more. You'd be surprised how that can help. _ Dad's and Moms, you are allowed temper tantrums too and your family will love you unconditionally through them just like you love and support them unconditionally through theirs. That's what family does.

What’s The One Piece Of Relationship Advice You Would Give To New Parents?
