Check out these hilarious photos captured when dads were left alone to hang out with their kids. They’re all funny and a lot of them are even ingenious. We even bet that some of them are relatable, too!
1. Dad’s idea of swaddling.
We don’t think think this is how they taught it in the parenting classes, but it works!
2. When dads try to play hairdresser.

You’ve got to admit, this is a pretty ingenious way of watching the kids without sacrificing your time to relax. Win-win!
7. Mom said the kids have to stay in bed.
So, just hook the bed up to the back of a four-wheeler. It’s as easy as that!
8. This is too sweet.
But it’s also probably pretty messy and sticky.
9. Put the kids to bed.
And if dad passes out too, that’s okay! Just as long as everyone gets tucked in.

An hour has felt like years for this little guy. Now, he’s just one of the guys!
13. Sometimes you have to make due with the situation at hand.
This baby could only sleep when held like this, so naturally dad got hungry after a couple of hours.

This dad thought the top of his baby’s head looked familiar. We’re so glad he finally made the connection.
19. Dad didn’t have any extra hair ties.
But don’t worry, because he always has extra zip ties which seem to be the next best thing!
20. Dad’s solution to a wandering baby.
Well, this is one way to make sure they don’t wander away.
21. Is it a crepe, or is it a baby?

Mom wasn’t there to feed the baby, so this dad came up with an ingenious way to get his baby to eat!
