Even if you completely trust your partner and think they’re totally capable of looking after the baby by themselves, the first time you leave them alone can be nerve-wracking. You would probably feel the need to check up on them more often than usual, just to make sure everything was ok.
As the partner being checked on, however, this constant checking in can feel a little like you’re not trusted to care for your child. I can understand how this dad got to the palace where he just decided he’d photoshop his baby into dangerous situations and send those photos instead. They’re much more interesting anyway.
