I'm beginning to think I'm not normal by having a husband who wants to come home and interact with his baby. He will even wake the baby when he comes home cause he's missing him so much. I guess I should be thankful that my son has an amazing daddy cause apparently they are rare to find!

lmfao then I do NOT see why this is not normal. I feel like it wouldn't be normal if your husband didn't interact with your son at all because he was TIRED .... i bet if you made a post about DH coming home from work everyday and not helping you at all with your son people would be all over that! lol

No one is saying it's not normal. But OP needs to get a better sleeping schedule. That's what people are saying. Sleep when baby sleeps, even if it's only short naps. Then maybe they can BOTH be up to play with their child, instead of one at a time

I don't think so..he helped to make the baby he can help care for the baby...you have to have sleep too or you wont be able to..my son had a problem with not sleeping long and being fussy for a bit, don't know if you said you ff or bf but with my son he wasn't able to get milk from me the "normal" way so I pump some milk and ff the rest but the first formula (similac) made him very fussy so we switched and it got better. Co-sleeping also does wonders. I said id never do it but I got so exhuasted and he sleeps better that way and so do I... i dont know if you said your dh had a problem with it or if you are just asking if its bad but if your husband has a problem helping then he needs to grow up and take responsibility. Yeah he works out of the home, your job is in the home..you both need sleep so if you take the night shift until he gets home then the 4-10 shift should be his...I had this problem where I ended up having my son all day long and at night without the help of my dh...we ended up seperating for about 3 months because of it and are now trying to fix things...its not easy

I have talked to him about it and he said he's totally fine with it. I just feel bad because he works 7 hours a day then comes home and takes LO. Granted MIL an FIL live with us so MIL helps DH when she get's home but that's beside the point i guess :/



Idk. I thought that this was a normal thing too...
guess I was wrong :/
