Dax Shepard Reveals Secret Weapons of Parenting — What Are They?
Dax Shepard is just a new dad, but it seems as though he's already a pro!
"I got the secret weapons — the Five S’s: swaddling, sideways, swaying, shushing and sucking," the Parenthood actor, who utilizes Dr. Harvey Karp’s method, told reporters at NBC’s Press Tour in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
"When I look at her, it’s like when I was in 7th grade and fell in love for the first time, where it’s debilitating," Dax said. "That’s available 24/7 if I want, which is amazing."
Dax did admit to having practice before his little bundle of joy arrived, noting that it wouldn't be his first time on diaper duty. "I was older when my little sister was born, so I had done this before," said Dax. "I had changed a couple thousand diapers already a couple million times, so I wasn’t too afraid of [fatherhood], and it’s been nothing but wonderful."
And we're starting to wonder if Dax is actually Superman in disguise, because he says that he and Kristen aren't experiencing sleep deprivation since they created an intense schedules and shifts for baby duty. "If you’re logical about your approach, there’s a way for everyone to get some sleep," he says.
