Just venting here...
Beyond annoyed with my husband lately. He is a great husband and dad but when it comes to MOTN feedings or changes, he just sucks. That's harsh I know but, it's the truth. Our son only wakes up twice a night right now and it's usually at 12:30 and 4:30. I typically do the 12:30 feeding and he does the 4:30. That was his choice. But he gets so annoyed when 4:30 rolls around that I pretty much have to force him to get up. Then he is so sleepy that he often doesn't do a good job putting the diaper on so inevitably our son wakes up soaked and then comes the fun task of having to change EVERYTHING. Also, he just feeds our son and puts him down instead of sitting up with him for the necessary 20 minutes to settle his stomach so that he doesn't spit up. Of course when he does spit up, it is me that deals with it because by that time my husband is already fast asleep.
So, since our son is only waking twice a night, I decided that I can handle that on my own and told my husband that I would get up so he wouldn't have to. Plus, it's just less of a hassle and I usually end up getting up anyway... I didn't say that part to him. He took offense to this and refuses to just let me do it. I don't know what to do. It's really starting to drive me crazy and I really don't want to end up having an argument over it. Our son is 8 weeks old so I'm pretty used to waking up at this point but it's still an issue for my husband. I know he works all day and that he is tired, which is why it was decided that he would go to bed first and do the second feeding. He just can't seem to function in the MOTN and there doesn't seem to be a way to fix this.
Okay, that's my vent. Thanks for listening.
