No never. I haven't had a "night off" since Toby was born.
In OH's defence though, i am breastfeeding, and even if we were to go down the ebm-in-a-bottle route, OH has been working nights since new year and i would need to wake up to express anyway or come morning i'd be like Dolly Parton...so i guess it all seems a bit pointless at this stage for us.
No...but then I BF and there aint anything he can do if he gets up anyway.
Fine by me though as he has Theo every single evening for a couple of hours whilst I go up and see my horses and Id rather be awake all night and get to see the horses than sleep all night and not but then I function well on very little sleep anyhow!
Baby's have night feeds? Lol. I've done very few night feeds. My OH is out of work at the minute so he stays up all night and sleeps in the day and I deal with daytime and sleep at night. We always spent time together early morning when I get up and late evenings before I go to bed and it really works for us like this. He's always been a night person and enjoys the peace of the house when everyone is asleep TV is off and he can relax (until LO wakes up).
At weekends we share the night feeds. So if I do the 10pm feed he does the next one, except it always seems to work out bad for me! I.e. last night, OH did the 10pm feed, and I did the next one, which was at 4am, and then LO didn't wake until 8.30 am (he rarely does this), so my OH got the night off! Rubbish. Also sometimes my OH doesn't wake (or pretends he doesn't), and I get all huffy and just do it myself..
I Bf so have to do night feeds myself although she only wakes once now.
When she used to wake loads he used to do the last feed with an expressed bottle and sellte her while I slept then he would get up with her on a morning if he was off work so I could lie in.
Now he still gets up with her occasionally on his days off and if he comes in off nites and she is awake he takes her downstairs for a few hrs before going to bed himself.
When Evie was still waking up during the night, my OH would always do the nightshift as he's a bit of a night owl, then I'd take over at about 7am and he'd go to bed. That way both of us were getting some sleep then!
Think I must be lucky, My DD is 8 months old and my hubby got up every night with her, Im evil if I dont have enough sleep so he always says its easier for him to be tired than live with me constantly in a bad mood lol x
