TM always comes and says Hello to us when he gets home and he and Boo have a cute little "Hiiiii Baby" routine they do. Then we eat dinner, after when I'm cleaning up the table they have their cuddle time on the couch

Dont feel bad, my OH is the same, if not worse.
He comes home, normally in a mood because he hates his job, and goes directly on the computer checking his emails and school realated stuff, always ignoring LO. Sometimes hé even ignores me.
Many nights, actually pretty much every night, I bathe her myself, feed her and put her to bed, whithout even a cuddle from her dad. Its pretty sad.
Thats what you get for having a baby with someone who already had two kids before.

I gave up long ago "forcing" her on him. His loss.

Some guys need a bit of time to unwind after work, if you get what I mean? My dad would come home and need to go in the bedroom to take off his uniform (he was a police officer) and have a moment before he went into family mode.

I wouldn't go to the extreme that the other girls have suggested of talking to him about it. I go straight to Alex when I come home from volunteering, but DH needs a minute to have a smoke and sit down and destress.

My hubby rushes to the moses basket to say hi to our baby boy once he comes in. He doesn't do much for him though as he goes straight to bed as he doesn't get in till 11.30-12am as he works shifts. He has a lot of time with him in the middle of the night feed so i can get some sleep and rest and in the morning as he doesn't start work until 3pm.

Is it 'an extreme' to talk to your OH about something that bothers you enough to post on BnB about?

DH always rushes to see LO the minute he walks through the door, he has also woken him a few times just to cuddle and play. I do think it is unusual and would be unhappy with that sort of indifference.

My husband comes in, kisses me then lo. Takes off his coat, puts his bag down, washes his hands then comes and picks up lo and cuddles and plays with him until whenever he decides to eat supper.
