DH caught DS2, and he says it is just very cool to him that he was the very first person to touch our newborn. It has nothing to do with control. He just thought it was neat and exciting. The first person my son had contact with in this world is his daddy. It's just cool to be the first to hold that new little life in your hands, to be the first to lay eyes on him, etc. *shrugs* I guess people put so much importance on it, though, because they seem to think whoever "delivers" the baby needs to be very skilled. I had a nurse ask me, what if the baby gets tangled in the cord? Well, you unwrap it. My husband can tie his shoes and pick out the knots in our son's; I think he can take a cord off a baby, lol.
