Howard A. Ludwig became a stay-at-home dad after the birth of his son on June 14, 2006. He’s chronicled his experience in a weekly column ever since.

Howard “Bubba” Ludwig soon had a brother. Peter Ludwig was born on Nov. 24, 2007. The family of four lives in Chicago’s Morgan Park community on the Southwest Side.

A Lemont native, Ludwig began his career at the SouthtownStar in October 2000 as a business writer for what was then called the Daily Southtown. He covered local businesses as well as the financial markets.

His career changed dramatically with the arrival of his namesake. Stories about banking and small business were replaced by tales of bottle-feeding and blowouts. He’s shared these stories with readers all along the way, combining personal stories with a unique brand of humor.
