DH rarely ever puts DS to bed. It's harder for him than it is for me, but its no piece of cake for me either. DS is a hard one to get to sleep. Sometimes it takes me 3, 4, or even 5 tries at night, and I've been doing this since he was born. His needs are constantly changing, and I have to adapt. After taking care of DS all day by myself, I do not feel like it's fair that DH comes home, gets him ALL riled up, and then its my job to get him to sleep. Drives. Me. Nuts.
So a couple times over the past few weeks, after numerous failed attempts to get him to sleep, DH has taken DS for a walk in the Ergo and he is usually out within minutes. This shouldn't bother me, I really shouldn't care, but it does. It bugs me a little that our son is a year old and that is the only way that DH can get him to sleep.
When DS used to take a bottle (don't even get me started on his recent bottle strike) DH could sometimes get him down with cuddles and some milk, but now that it's boob or nothing, that's out the window.
What is DH going to do when its winter? It'll be much more difficult to get him down that way at that point. Nor do I want them walking around outside at night when the sidewalk is icy.
I don't know why I'm so irritated, because at least he's helping, but it bothers me. He should be able to do everything I can do. And I blame him for not being more proficient at getting Moses to sleep by now, because if he had started helping put him down a long time ago, this wouldn't be a problem at 11 months.
