My number one supporter is my number one critic!
I dont know where its coming from. When I had DS1 in 2009, I spent so much time with him that my husband felt really left out. This time around Im trying to do things different, like spend more time with him and have sex when Im exhausted to keep our relationship strong. He isnt interested like he was pre baby number 2. He criticizes me constantly when hes home. I cover up and sit in the car when we are out and have the windows covered. He gets mad when I want to spend time with him in the evening and says I didnt care when I was pregnant. I would go to bed early. He didnt find me attractive when I was pregnant, my belly would get in the way. It hurt me, but I figured we would be happy after the baby was born. He wants me to wear lingerie, but gets grossed out when my boobs drip milk. I cant help it! He wants me to switch to formula but why change nursing when nothing is wrong with baby and I? We are happy. This is so frustrating. I can understand that he gets overwhelmed with DS1 who is 3 and a half years old, but then again he only holds baby for 15 minutes a day because he thinks baby wants me. I keep telling him to bond with him, otherwise baby is going to prefer me 24.7. Imsure he wants his thin wife back, but right now our baby needs his mother. He will be 4 weeks old on the 24th. I need to lose 25 lbs to be at my target weight...120. I try cooking for him and making time so I feel like Im trying to be a good wife and mother. What tips or tricks do you guys have to make breastfeeding easier? Or any advice? Tia.
