A dad who is left alone with a baby is the most generous topic for jokes and humorous stories. In fact, all these absurd stories about clumsy fathers who "cook children" and "bathe borscht" are long in the past. Now some clever dads cope with babies a hundred times better than moms who plunge headlong into a career and dreams of self-realization.

Swedish photographer Johan Bavman met face to face with fathers who are not at all afraid of the prospect of being left alone with a newborn baby.

Parental leave in Sweden is a real happiness for parents. The state sends Swedes to look after their children for as many as 480 days. Of course, at the same time they are paid a monthly allowance. According to the law, each parent must spend at least 60 days with the child, the rest of the time moms and dads divide among themselves independently. Now they want to increase the minimum parental "shift" by another 30 days.

The goal of such a clear distribution is to achieve the maximum level of gender equality in the country. The more honestly parents share the required 480 days, the higher the financial bonuses for the family during the forced vacation. Despite the generous allowance, few fathers strive to use all of their 60 days. Of all the families, only 14% decided to share the vacation equally.

The photo project "Swedish Dads" by photographer Johan Bavman tells about hero dads who spend at least 6 months alone with their offspring.
