    Well, i know he loves LO dearly but many times he drives me mad. Now i become a real grumpy wife.
    Not sure if it's hormone as well or just him.
    LO is 2 months n 5 days today, and in the first month he woke up about 5-7 times a night for feed or change nappies and 90% of the time i had to wake up. i know i got boobs so i had to but other things he could help. He just turned his back on me when baby cried and went back to sleep. if i asked him to help winding LO sometimes he woke up and back to sleep straight away, few times he helps.
    ....
    Now i only get up 4 times a night, LO wakes up for feed every 2 hours. Well, that's much better for me. He's a eating machine,lol
    Still i need to sleep too, i know i get more sleep now but only once a night i need help from him, or have LO for half an hour in the morning so i can get a bit more sleep.

    He spend most of his time ( if he;s at home ) in front of computer watching someything on youtube or topgear program or play games and keep the door shut

    Every morning we go for a walk with baby and 2 dogs, as soon as we get back he has his breasfast when i shower/bath LO then feed him and try to put him to sleep which takes 1-2 hours to finish this job. BUt he just go to computer straight away. i have to shout on the top of my voice to get him to hear me and come to help me:hissy:

    today he had his breakfast 2 hours ago and playing game on computer while i'm rocking LO on the chair trying to put him into deep sleep before i can do other stuffs.

    if i ask him to help calming the LO, he basically just say "come on now Lincoln, you are being silly. Go to sleep. No need of this crying...."

    Men men men...
    i dont understand. i'm not asking too much, but i also need to eat and a little break during day so i can finish housework and other stuffs

    i feel like i'm alone here. don't get supportive words from him but when i ask for help he just seems so unhappy and dont want to do it. :hissy: like i interrupt him form what's he doing:cry:

    sorry for the long rant. thanks for reading

    share yours if you like. all welcome,lol

    I'm trying to get Kaya to stop waking up every 2 hours for a feed at the moment, but if I let her cry at all OH wakes up all grumpy. Apparently it's ok for me to have sleepless nights, but not him.
