Glass, Jennifer
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v60 n4 p821-34 Nov 1998
Examines the experiences of families in which fathers care for their newborn infants when mothers return to work after childbirth. Documents the hours of care provided by fathers while mothers are at work, the simultaneous use of other child-care arrangements, and the average savings per family. Explores three possible motivations for families to use fathers as primary care providers. (Author/MKA)
