When I was a new dad many years ago and my wife went out with her friends for an evening without endless crying, feedings and more poop than she cared to look at. It was also helpful to have an evening away from the newborn as well. Someone would inevitably chime in with, "Ah, doing a little babysitting eh?". Well, no, this is my child, do you not remember? They are my responsibility too. Believe it or not, men know how to take care of children.
