Men have often difficulties to discuss the emotions they experience with a baby or a very young child. I don't know why. I have myself experienced moments of total fusion with my babies. In particular during the middle of the nights when I was feeding them in the dark. Intense moments surrounded by absolute silence. Also more recently, - they are now 9 and 5 -, when we look each other in the eyes, it's like if the emotions were directly connected. I cannot imagine living without having experienced that. I am now very happy that one of my friends who seemed very far from this might be experiencing the same with his son.
